Democrat Alderman Says ‘Innocent People are Being Hunted Like Prey in Chicago’

Chicago Councilman/ Alderman Raymond Lopez
Chicago: Crime rates have soared under radical socialist Mayor Brandon Johnson, for example, in his first 30 days in office, crime rose 38% from the prior year. Chicago Democrat Alderman Raymond Lopez told Fox News, “Things like robbery, burglary, arson, assault, even threatening elected officials like myself, do not warrant you being held on bond anymore in the state of Illinois, and criminals are taking note.” Lopez said that the city’s failure to respond has left innocent people being “hunted down like prey.” He advocated for pushing back and to start “holding people and parents accountable, because oftentimes these are 12, 13, 14-year-olds who are engaging in this behavior, such as the armed carjacking that is so rampant in the city of Chicago.”

Lopez claimed that the extreme liberal agenda of police reform and criminal justice reform is “racist” because “oftentimes the victims of the most heinous crimes by the repeat offenders are those same Black and Brown residents that the White liberals claim to care about but truly don’t.”

Chicago’s City Council is comprised of 50 aldermen members; 20 members belong to the Black Caucus and 15 members belong to the Latino Caucus.

From  Fox News:

Democratic leader in Chicago is decrying the city’s response to crime, saying innocent people are being “hunted down like prey.”

 Democratic Chicago alderman Raymond Lopez told “America Reports” on Tuesday that “things like robbery, burglary, arson, assault, even threatening elected officials like myself, do not warrant you being held on bond anymore in the state of Illinois, and criminals are taking note,”

“They become emboldened, and the deafening cry is not heard by the politicians demanding change. They only sit back as you saw, and try to stick to the script, even when the public refuses to participate.”

Lopez told FOX News that voters are noticing that when they elect “socialists or ultra progressives” they wind up with “a tone-deaf leadership.”

“Common sense requires us to start standing up and pushing back on the criminality in our neighborhoods, to start holding people and parents accountable, because oftentimes these are 12, 13, 14-year-olds who are engaging in this behavior, such as the armed carjacking that is so rampant in the city of Chicago,” Lopez said.

“It’s unfortunate was we saw today where the Judiciary Committee came to Chicago that not one single Democrat chose to participate and make their voices heard or to hear from those most impacted.”

The alderman said while citizens are “voting with their feet,” some do not have the option to move from the crime-filled city.

“We…have nearly two thirds of our city who cannot do that, who must stay here and they are the victims of the violence that we see so often in particularly Black and Brown communities,” he explained.

Residents bound to the city “have had enough” of not being acknowledged, Lopez told FOX News.

“They are often talked about for the progressive agenda, for the extreme liberal agenda that says they care,” he said. “But their policies, particularly when it comes to police reform and criminal justice reform, in my opinion, are very racist because oftentimes the victims of the most heinous crimes by the repeat offenders are those same Black and Brown residents that the White liberals claim to care about but truly don’t.”

This “Democrat Alderman” needs to go directly to jail for his part in disarming the population and creating the problem in the first place.That also goes for all of Chicago’s so called “law enforcement” that have also criminally disarmed the population.———————– Real “Law Enforcement”…. is the Constitutional Militia (and the citizens grand jury)I am so tired of the misapplication of the term  “Law Enforcement”. The only “Law Enforcement” mentioned in the US Constitution is the Constitutional Militias of the several states mentioned in article 1, section 8, paragraph 15. What people call “Law Enforcement” are criminal thugs that will come to your home and murder you if you… Read more »
