Well Mayor Lighfoot will certainly put a stop to that...not the looting, but the prosecution of any looters.

"Our producers reached the woman who posted those public Facebook Live videos over the weekend. The producers were blocked by one of her friends, and we never got a comment from her to include in this story."

In a sane, normal place. These posts would be 'evidence' and these criminals would be arrested and convicted and put in prison. But, it's Chicago. Likely no problems for her.

So head for California. Looting is legal in LA and SF as long as you keep it down to $999 per incident.

I believe selling stolen goods over the internet is a federal felony because of the interstate nature of the medium. I do hope the feds will follow up on some of these.

@17 I was just wondering if all those boxes they were carrying from the shoe store were their size or if they just grabbed so they could sell them. I saw one with an armload of boxes but he kept dropping them as he ran because he was having to use one hand to hold up his pants.

Sure, Drew Brees was on a (metaphorical) island. The rest of this comparison seems imperfect at best. A source close to Brees told NBC Sports’ Peter King that seeing the New Orleans Saints quarterback blasted from all corners of social media reminded him of the book “Lord of the Flies.” The comparison struck the wrong chord with some readers and King responded to feedback by removing the note. The longtime NFL reporter tweeted: “I am removing the reference to ‘Lord of the Flies’ upon hearing from so many who found it offensive. I apologize for using it. I understand why some are hurt by it.

Calls for police reform are growing after the death of George Floyd sparked protests in Chicago and across the country. The push to cut police funding and shift resources to community-based services is gaining momentum. On Sunday, a majority of the Minneapolis City Council vowed to disband the city's police department. Northwest Side Ald. Rossana Rodriguez Sanchez said she's in favor of defunding the Chicago Police Department. "We have to consider how much money are we willing to continue to spend in an institution that isn't definitely not working for most of us," she said. "I think it is a beautiful time to imagine what is possible."

Grant Park and Union Park will be designated spots for demonstrators to gather this weekend, as part of a plan announced by Mayor Lori Lightfoot Friday. But Chicago just entered Phase 3 of the governor’s reopen plan, and groups of 10 or more are still prohibited. Or are they? The city expects hundreds if not thousands to gather peacefully this weekend. (Snip) But for some who are waiting eagerly to enjoy the parks and lakefront, they are still greeted with closed signs. Many are questioning how opening the parks for protesters supports the science of social distancing. “I don’t see how it makes sense,” said Piaree Moser

Cornel West and civil rights attorney Leo Terrell were supposed to have a civil segment on defunding the police, urban violence, and Democratic incompetence at addressing these issues, but things went off the hinges almost immediately. It was absolute mayhem on Sean Hannity’s show on Fox News. Hannity prefaced the segment about the Democrats’ inability to govern, which was interrupted by West. The shouting began almost immediately. Terrell hit back at West for just recycling old Democratic talking points. He then tried to have a discussion with West, “black man to black man,” which West did not take well at all.

Have you heard that a six-block section of Seattle has become an anarchist “capitol hill autonomous zone,” or “CHAZ” for short? It has. Police and firefighters vacated their premises and bugged out with a Twitter blessing from Mayor Jenny Durkan. Durkan dithered over the descent of protests into violence for a week before doing much, and when she did much, her choice was to tweet in hasty retreat. Anarchists quickly set up CHAZ to be and do its own thing, as long as that thing conformed with diktats of the CHAZ hierarchy. They put up makeshift signs saying, “You are now leaving the U.S.A.”
