Chicago: Social-media posts claimed that the Police had shot an unarmed, 15-year old boy, but the report was not true. The police did shoot an armed 20-year old man with a criminal record who opened fire on police. The misinformation was shared across social media by BLM Chicago, and chaos followed, because violence is their mission looking for an excuse. Hundreds of looters raided luxury department stores in the Miracle Mile and other areas downtown. Rioters confronted police and, at one point, exchanged gunfire with officers. Police sent to respond to the looting were outnumbered and attacked, prompting authorities to raise major bridges in order to keep more people out of the area. Thirteen police officers were injured, and a security guard and a civilian also were struck by gunfire. The Mayor and Chief of Police responded with stern words against the rioters.

Hundreds of ‘mostly peaceful protesters’ swept through the Magnificent Mile and other parts of downtown Chicago early Monday, smashing windows, looting stores, confronting police and at one point exchanging gunfire with officers, authorities said.

As The Chicago Tribune reports, officers had stopped several people on Lake Street near Michigan Avenue when shots were fired from a passing car around 4:30 a.m., nearly five hours into the widespread vandalism, according to police spokesman Tom Ahern.

No officers were shot but a squad car was hit, he said. It was not known if anyone in the gunman’s car was shot.

Two words: George Soros. Pull the plug on him and this whole “movement” falls apart. He should have been brought up on charges of treason years ago. Let us see what socialism is all about by watching Seattle. The true colors of socialism will be shown for the incredibly stupid farce that it has always proven itself to be no matter where it has been tried. Seattle will join San Francisco as a once shining city being turned into a liberal shit hole.
