Mr. ChicagoSouthSider, may I recommend somewhere near Park Ridge, so we can grab some more food at Don Juan in Edison Park?

So many people here feel that way now which is very sad! And yet as I mentioned in another post there are people like a group I just argued with that think Lori lightfoot is the greatest thing to ever happen to us!!

I wonder if many of these protestors are from the suburbs. Once Metra stop the free rides maybe they stay home..lol.
If it was only that easy.

CPD fails again, using excessive violence, especially in an unprovoked situation.
Yeah, here's a couple screen shots from your angelic little "non-provking" protester's FB page before they vanished:

Aneglic Image #1

Anglelic Image #2

Here's a video of your precious little cherub bragging about her adventures in looting and rioting.

And here is your "non-provoking" little gift to humanity interfering with police trying to make an arrest when she supposedly got "punched in the face" at the end of the video.

And I'm supposed to feel bad this little brat got her teeth knocked out? I'm only sad it didn't happen sooner -- though I wouldn't be surprised if it DID happen sooner and she's faking it. Notice in the video filmed from across the street when the cop takes a swipe at her -- with an open hand, NOT a fist -- she just walks away. She supposedly got punched in the face by a grown man hard enough to knock her teeth out but she doesn't even reel back, much less get knocked on her ass? I'm calling BS on that noise. If she got her teeth knocked out, this wasn't when it happened. Evidently GoFundMe isn't buying it either as they've suspended the fundraiser for her "medical bills."

^^ THIS is who and what our elected officials are throwing their support behind while they throw the people who have to put up with this under the bus. I find it distressing and a bad sign for the future of Chicago they couldn't offer even a tiny fraction of condemnation for the rioters who are destroying the city as they did for those trying to protect it. Just as distressing is the media has absolutely no compunction about lying right to our faces while presenting video explicitly showing what they say happened didn't happen. And more distressing still is so much of the public watches the lie, can see with their own eyes it's a lie, and accepts the lie anyway because they WANT it to be the truth.

Our society is in deep trouble.

Yes, you are allowed to yell at the police. If the police need to defend themselves, it needs to be proportionate. Sucker punching someone in the face for yelling isn't proportionate. If you have any humanity, you should feel bad about that. And if the cops don't want people to yell at them, they can always start stop targeting minorities for harassment. and the good cops can start reporting on the bad cops. I find it distressing that so many people in Chicago are in favor of perpetuating systemic racism.

Except nobody got "sucker-punched." Did you miss that whole part of my post, or are you one of the people willing to accept the lie because you want it to be true?

Lie, video evidence. But hey, in Trump's America, facts don't matter.

I agree with Bitey that hoodrat simply got b*tchslapped. She is lucky that was all. You can yell at the police all you want but when they are getting injured from firecrackers, and rocks from a violent mob and you aggressively charge and get in an officer's face like that they darn well are going to defend themselves with force.

Right, the video evidence CLEARLY SHOWING he hit her (or her phone) with an OPEN HAND, not a fist, supposedly hard enough to knock her teeth out but not hard enough to cause her to even reel back, much less land on her backside, after plenty of warning to back the hell off. Nobody got sucker-anything'd, much less sucker-punched.

But I do agree with you on one point: facts don't matter -- at least to you -- even when the facts are laid out right in front of your face for you and everyone else to see.

this is so sad and pathetic; forget about the poster who cant discern fact from fiction, even with video proof

hoodrats, like that scumbag bragging about vandalizing, stealing, and her total lack of respect for anyone and anything need to be dealt with, but sadly, the mayor doesnt want to offend these scum sucking, worthless meatbags..

sorry, but this needs to be fixed, before everyone leaves the city who can, and the only ones left are vermin like her..

chicago cant take much more of this, the whole nation is watching, horified at what your worthless mayor is allowing to happen to this once great city..

I feel so sorry for you guys who cant get out of chicago..
