Chicago Mayor Threatens Arrest for Being Outside

This is, by definition, a police state.

Lightfoot added that spending long periods of time outdoors, anywhere, is not allowed. And neither is going into closed spaces, like playgrounds.

“You cannot go on long bike rides. Playgrounds are shut down. You must abide by the order. Outside, is for a brief respite, not for 5Ks. I can’t emphasize enough that we abide the rules.”


“The public health order is not an advisory. It is a mandate. If you violate, it your are subject to a fine of $500. If you continue to violate it, you will be subject to arrest,” Beck said.


But Lightfoot reiterated that not following the stay at home order will bring serious consequences.

“At worst, we will take you into custody.”

    Amazing! A Democrat mayor willing to arrest somebody. Maybe someday he will want to lock up all the murderous thugs and rapists in his city vs productive, innocent taxpayers.

    Typical liberal.

    Another democrat dictator.
    I will say this, the number of murders in Chicago have gone way down. Maybe she will keep this state of emergency going past a reasonable date. After all, it will save lives.

    Interesting, because “inside” is by definition a closed area, best for spreading disease.  “Outside” activity is therefore safer.

    Unless you’re outside on the South Side of Chicago while the drug wars are active.

  5. Mar says:

    Both jjf and Le Roi would love the police rate because more lives will be saved. No more gang wars, less murders. Chicago should be in a permanent police state where no one goes out anymore, according to liberals.

  6. jjf says:

    Mar, you’re so dramatic.  No, I don’t want a police state.

    Thou shalt not stray more than 1 1/2 miles from thine pen unless thou art going to or from a government-approved jobsite.

    Seriously, for distance runners (not to mention bicyclists), going 3.1 miles (or as Frau Kommandant Lightfoot put it, 5K) is but a warmup.

  8. Merlin says:

    Never let a crisis go to waste. Lightfoot might have found a way to temporarily flatten the homicide curve in Chicago while at the same time driving the drug dealing and sex trade indoors.

  9. Le Roi du Nord says:

    No mar, I am not in favor of a police rate (whatever that is), nor a police state. You are delusional, and prone to violent fits of hyperbole and self delusion. Seek help.

    from thine pen

    I see what you did there, Major.

    you’re so dramatic

    “Dramatic” is Jiffy’s new word for this week.  He’s using it all over this blog.

    Jiffy bought one of those vocabulary-enhancing computer programs or something.

  12. Mar says:

    So, jjf is in favor of the murders of the gang bangers and the innocents who have been killed by said gang bangers.
    Remember, if it just saves 1 life. 1 grandma, then we must go to the extreme of an almost total lockdown. That’s what Le Roi and jjf have been screaming at the top of their lungs.
    I guess, brown and black people just don’t matter to Le Roi and jjf.

  13. Le Roi du Nord says:

    No mar, I have never screamed that. Not now, not ever, never will. Does lying make you feel more manly? Or is it a pathology?
