That's the point, that "free" Gucci purse would cost them four hundred bucks in tires. Or maybe then they'd be breaking into Goodyear on the way home, who knows. But the point is, if the inducement to loot is taken away, then it will stop. It's like the old saying:

If you want less of something, tax it. If you want more of something, subsidize it.

Seriously, I would have expected a repeat of 68 by now, and supported it. Get the force the riot gear and release them to go crack some skulls. Can we get an old man Daley clone please?

People have posted that video of Daley from 1968 all over the place begging for those actions to be done. It is the only way this will end. Otherwise it will get much worse and I have no doubt it will get much worse because nobody is doing a damn thing to stop this. Chicago is gone for ever

They'll never get control again if they don't insert fear. It's an ugly truth about humans and mobs....a mobbed up group of people is only deferential to a bigger and stronger mob of people...and that video shows our big protectors getting crushed.

And I don't think it would take much at all. Did not some small towns in other parts of America chase these people out! ANd even yesterday in Englewood a small group from that area chased them out. The protesters even said they left because they FEARED for their life lol.

These protesters are weak and it would only take a small bit of force or even the threat of it to make them run away again. But this mayor won't even do that! Which is why all week we keep hearing how business owners and residents are planning to leave the city. They are tired of there being no protection and no accountability from the city under the current people running it.

Of course as I have said on here so many times now. These people would not be in the positions they are in if the people of this city did not vote them in to begin with! So I blame the voters for this more than anyone else

The protesters are a weak bunch of spoiled, self-centered, and patronizing adult brats. Yes, Mayor Groot will not crack down on them.

The problem is and will continue to be the lawlessness Mayor Groot has enabled along with her tweedle-dumber partner Kim Fixx. Fixx dropping charges against the big looting and destruction session in late May into June. The Juicy Smollette embarrassment was just another red flag this dunce cap winning DA is all about.

The no consequences, police standing down on Groot’s orders, and the defund the police are the ingredients in the anarchy cocktail these 2 morons created.

Get talking with the firefighters. They know how to use their axes and if there's smoke, there's fire. They, and not the police, saved my sister's store. Taking care of them for decades likely didn't hurt.

If you see activity, take a shot in the air. The police have to respond to shots fired....and the lost protesters that aren't part of the group would have an obvious signal to depart and leave. With no human shield, these anarchists can be taken down.
