Chicago Mayor Blames ‘Covid’ for Spiking Murder Rate

‘All of these forces are coming together at the same time and making it very difficult’
By Grabien Staff

EXCERPT:

JIMENEZ: “Compared to last year shootings up 40 percent, homicides up more than 30 percent. So just point blank, what is happening right now?”
LIGHTFOOT: “All of these forces are coming together at the same time and making it very difficult. The ecosystem of public safety that isn’t just law enforcement but is local, community-based, they, too, have really been hit hard by COVID and are now just kind of coming back online and getting their footing.”
