Chicago is the latest city to be hit by rampant shoplifting and its Magnificent Mile, the once highly-populated retail destination, is now dotted with empty storefronts as businesses are being driven away by the brazen thieves.
The city has been plagued by a string of robberies and a wave of crime in the past few months, as some say that the city’s ‘soft-on-crime’ policies embolden the thieves. The issue may only grow worse as at least 50 cops have been put on unpaid leave for refusing to get the COVID-19 vaccine.
Shoplifting cases grew more common following a December 2016 motion from State’s Attorney Kim Foxx that mandated Chicago prosecutors only issue felony charges for theft of property over $1,000.

Maybe we should do our Christmas shopping there.
How about doing our Christmas shopping …IN… Kim Foxx’s house… I guess anything worth less than $1000 is up for grabs.
How’s about we just start ROBBING THE HOMES of everyone of these mayors and governors, since THEY OBVIOUSLY CARE NOT about enforcing the laws!
Looks like a jungle out there
Soon to be just like San Francisco where stories are closing and moving away. Lol
Not funny! Chicago was a beautiful city until that horrible mayor and fat state’s attorney ruined it!
When it comes to running big cities and successful States, once you go black, you most often just want to go back, to anything but black. Dear God, please let the Democrats run some black people for office who can just prove this is worng. WE have been been waiting for Decades for a great black hope, not just a bunch of Social revenge seeking pugalistic professional prize fighters.
Need to include the Illinois Governor, also. I refuse to use his name or give him any recognition !
I was thinking the same thing. Chicago wants to be the San Francisco of the midwest.
With how long chicago has been known as Chi-raq, i think its more that San Fran wants to emulate Chicago!
Complete breakdown of civilized society.
Wrong!! Complete BLM society.
One thing all the criminals have in common, skin color.
AND they all live in COMMUCRAT RAN Cities and states!
And we’re not allowed to profile… Hmm…
“If a Dalmatian has been biting the children in the neighborhood, I think we’re going to look for a black and white dog.”
I.A.W. U.S. Census & 2018 FBI (Table 43a)
Black males make up about 6% of the U.S. population but every year commit ~56% of all the murders and ~54% of all robberies in the U.S…
I wonder, is the Chamber of Commerce still proud of the role they had in protecting the election from all those stupid Trump voters?
Their minds were so rotted out with their TDS, as long as Orangeman bad is gone, THEY CARE NOT.
Is it wrong to want Chicago to become a total uninhabited wasteland? Chicago has been extremely corrupt for a long time. I have no clue why anyone would want to live there, have a business there or even visit there. Yes, i have been to Chicago many times for work and school, but, it has become so incredibly corrupt. The weather is not very good most of the time, so I never understood what made Chicago popular. The corrupt & criminal Chicago government is getting exactly what they always wanted, a city of criminals. It fits perfectly with the current president and his corrupt administration working on ruining the entire country. It is sickening what corrupt democrats do, totally ruining the lives of people of color. IMHO Criminals and corrupt democrats don’t read…… this website. So, I am probably preaching to the choir.
NOT to me… The sooner it gets walled up, and left to rot, the better.
First cause mayhem around the country, then call for the defunding of police for alleged actions during the first. Ensure that the President who offers law, order, and justice to those afflicted is defeated in an election comes next. In the meantime have people who having some sort of grievance against authority in place to administer retro-justice for previous suffering! The radical left has worked it out to a science, a President out of touch with a large percentage of the country, an AG who labels concerned citizens as terrorists while the real thing can walk across the border unimpeded. Soon there will be a nationalized protection racket in place to protect those who pay. Oh, what a tangled web…!
No, it’s not. I escaped 33 years ago to rural Colorado and never looked back. Apparently all those Draconian, illegal and un-Constitutional gun laws are on the side of Equity, Tolerance and Anti-Racism.
With how liberal Coloradoistan is, i am not sure you really escaped..
I wonder if even radicals are surprised by this. Who could be so stupid to be surprised? I wonder if this is some sick wealth redistribution scheme.
Unfortunately, TDS has rotted their brains…
Disgusting. HOODLOOMS all (those stealing). Chicago was one a nice city – not any more. And Lightfoot is a disgrace, a failed human being.
It’s only going to get worse, the people in that city are trained to vote only one way, even if it was an honest election,
All i can say, is if the folks there don’t wake up soon, and vote the dems OUT, then NO ONE ANYWHERE ELSE Should ever again, have a single ounce of sympathy for a SINGLE RESIDENT Of chiraq..
I bet the mayor is so proud how her citizens take care of themselves.
The Democrats are human garbage so they produce human garbage. Bail out of these cities and watch them decay and die off.
Things would probably change if white criminals went to Chicago to make the shoplifting & robbery racially fair & proportionate in the name of social justice, lol.
I might even go there to steal some free high $ stuff if I wasn’t afraid of being a bystander victim riddled with bullets in broad daylight by the gangs that rule the streets of Chicago.
Can you imagine if even just say TWO Trump supporters were doing these robberies.. THE FBI AND DOIJ WOULD BE all over it.
These thieves should get a real job stealing, like politicians. Then they can spend tax money and give it to themselves.
Seeing how many crooks are in the DNC, i wouldn’t be surprised at all, to see some of these criminals RUN FOR OFFICE and win!
When people are so incredibly stupid that they vote Democrat no matter how useless the candidate is, this is what they deserve. This time they are on the way to financial ruin and may never rebound. When low life criminals take over the city the decent people won’t come to spend their money out of fear for their safety. Another city destroyed by Satan’s Democrats. If you don’t believe in Satan and God surely you believe in Good and Evil. True Evil has taken over . Time to wake up.
