War on Police in Chicago
In Illinois, and especially Chicago, anti-police sentiment is at an all-time high.
Democrat “leaders” Mayor Lori Lightfoot and Cook County DA Kim Foxx are on the front lines of the war on police. Their broken policies and inflated budgets are destroying their police departments from within, and now the plague of disrespect threatens to infect surrounding communities as well.
National Police Support Fund’s rallying cry is “Restore Respect to Police”, but what do we mean by “respect”? Respect means not only showing deference to those who put their lives on the line each and every day, but also ensuring that they have the tools, equipment, and training necessary to complete their tasks. What is more disrespectful than expecting a civil servant to lay down their lives for their communities while refusing to properly equip them, train them, or even shield them from legal prosecution in the line of duty?
A recent Chicago Police Survey we ran showed that over 96% of Chicago police officers and their loved ones do not have confidence in their mayor. This drives home the sad truth that we’ve known for years: Mayor Lightfoot and Kim Foxx are woefully inept and unable to curb the plague of violence ravaging Chicago.
Chicago residents need to make their voices heard at the polls and oust this regime who’ve ceded the streets to criminals.
