Mayor Lori Lightfoot: We Will Cite You, Arrest You, and Jail You for Violating Stay-at-Home Orders

‘We will take you to jail’

LIGHTFOOT: "Now, I've directed Superintendent Brown to order all police districts to give special attention to these parties, and this is how it's going to be. We will shut you down, we will cite you, and if we need to, we will arrest you and we will take you to jail. Period. There should be nothing unambiguous about that. Don't make us treat you like a criminal. But if you act like a criminal and you violate the law and you refuse to do what is necessary to save lives in the city in the middle of a pandemic, we will take you to jail. Period."
