Chicago Mayor-Elect Defends Looters: ‘Demonizing Children Is Wrong’

‘Sometimes they make silly decisions’
By Grabien Staff


JOHNSON: “Look, demonizing children is wrong! We have to keep them safe as well. Have you ever taught middle school? I have. Have you ever raised young people? Do you understand the risk that young people take just because they're young? Do you know that home plate is at the bottom of my stairs? I found that out when my son was sliding down those stairs trying to score. They're young. Sometimes they make silly decisions! They do. So we have to make sure that we are investing to make sure that young people know that they are supported.”
