Riots in Chicago

Meanwhile, Chicago is starting to look like Tosa.

CHICAGO — Hundreds of people descended on downtown Chicago early Monday following a police shooting on the city’s South Side, with vandals smashing the windows of dozens of businesses and making off with merchandise, cash machines and anything else they could carry, police said.

Police Superintendent David Brown told reporters that the Sunday afternoon shooting of the man who had opened fire on officers apparently prompted a social media post that urged people to form a car caravan and converge on the business and shopping district.

Some 400 additional officers were dispatched to the area after the department spotted the post. Over several hours, police made more than 100 arrests and 13 officers were injured, including one who was struck in the head with a bottle, Brown said.

Brown dismissed any suggestion that the chaos was part of an organized protest of the shooting, calling it “pure criminality” that included occupants of a vehicle opening fire on police who were arresting a man they spotted carrying a cash register.

No officers were wounded by gunfire, but a security guard and a civilian were hospitalized in critical condition after being shot, and five guns were recovered, he said.

Tell me again about defunding the police.

    Will you support police here against awful Chicago liberal politicians?

  2. Le Roi du Nord

    I will (and have all my life) support legal and proper law enforcement against criminals of any political persuasion, religion, or race.

  3. Kevin Scheunemann


    So you support police leader criticism here of awful liberal politicians?

  4. Le Roi du Nord

    Asked and answered.

    The rioting was bad but it pales with the slaughter in the inner city of Chicago, especially the children.
    The Demoxrat mayor is pathetic. The city council is pathetic. The past and current police chiefs have been pathetic.
    All liberals.
    How sad.

    Were you not so lazy, and hidebound by your ideology, you would have noticed the several statements I made on the issue of support for law enforcement, lawful behavior, and not kneeling to your dictatorial demands. You are an incredibly slow learner.

  8. dad29

    Mar, you forgot the Lefty MOST to blame for the mess in Chicago:  Soros’ BFF Kim Foxx, who dismissed over 25,000 criminal complaints in the last couple of years and who is running with a ‘catch and release’ policy.

  9. Kevin Scheunemann


    I asked for your statement on this specific attack on law enforcement by awful, liberal, criminal supporting politicians in Chicago.

  10. Le Roi du Nord


    And you still haven’t learned a thing. Your continued demands are a text book case of aggressive ignorance.

  11. Kevin Scheunemann


    Just asking for you to walk your talk in this specific instance.

    I cannot help it that you are incongruent and silent for the values to claim to value.



  12. Le Roi du Nord


    True, you cannot help yourself. I’ll agree with you on that point. The rest of your claim is pure and utter fiction.

  13. Kevin Scheunemann

    Coward.   You can’t choke out a specific statement railing against these liberal criminals and politicians and supporting the police here?



  14. Le Roi du Nord


    Sorry l, but no coward here. I’ve done a lot more in my life to prove that than you ever could, hiding behind your juvenile insults, ideology, and identity politics. You want a real test of courage and intelligence, how about you stand up for civility, equality, and truth. Betcha can’t.

  15. Kevin Scheunemann



    Asking you to back uppolice here and denounce criminals is not an “insult”.

    It is common sense.

    If you view it as an “insult”, you are NOT pro law enforcement like you say.

    Toughen up buttercup.

  16. Le Roi du Nord

    Wrong again, k. Talking tough on a blog doesn’t make you anything more than just another wannabe tough guy, sorta like your idol. What have you ever done outside the blog?

  17. Kevin Scheunemann


    I regularly praise the officers of Kewaskum police department in public.

    Praise the Police Chief regularly in public for good work.

    Donate to the departement.

    Facilitate my Kiwanis Club to donate and help the department for needed equipment from time to time.

    I would never run my localpolice department down in favor or leftist criminals…or be silent if leftist terrorists invaded Kewaskum.

    Now, will you stop deflecting and denounce the criminals and awful leftist politicians in Chicago?   Will you praise the police leadership in chicago criticizing the leftist thugs and stupid leftist politicians, or not?

    Anonymity makes them very brave, Le Roi.

  19. Jason

    >Anonymity makes them very brave, Le Roi.

    Is that why you fear doxxing?

  20. Le Roi du Nord

    “I would never run my localpolice department”.
    Nor have I, nor will I ever.  What gives you the right to infer I did?

    You are truly a small, petty and unimportant person.

  21. Randall Flagg

    Doxxing is wrong Jason, and practiced by both Republicans and Democrats.


  22. jjf

    Randall, Jason doxxes here regularly and he fails to examine his own behavior, or ask how doing it makes him feel and why he is motivated to do it.

  23. Kevin Scheunemann

    You dishonest liberals.

    The actual quote was,  “I would never run my local police department down in favor or leftist criminals”   (emphasis added).

    This is why civil society is breaking down, you liberals excuse this awful, open criminal, thug, liberal, behavior.

  24. Pat

    I’ll do you one better. I would never run my local police department down in favor of any criminal.

  25. Kevin Scheunemann


    Good Job.

    Nord can’t say that in this case.



  26. jjf

    And in Kevin’s eyes, Trump and his followers are only making things better.

  27. Le Roi du Nord


    This your quote, “I would never run my localpolice department down in favor or leftist criminals…or be silent if leftist terrorists invaded Kewaskum.”

    Didn’t you think anyone would notice your edits?

    And, if you weren’t so lazy and incurious, you would have noticed that I said, several times, what Pat said.  And I never excused any criminal behavior, liberal or conservative, republican or Democrat.  But you wouldn’t accept that because of your ideology and overwhelming ego.

    Grow up.

  28. Kevin Scheunemann

    You 2 still will not criticze these specific criminals or awful liberal politicians in Chicago, will you?

    You 2 have abdicated all moral responsibility on any basic moral issue.


  29. Le Roi du Nord


    Enforcement of the law needs to be firm, fair, and consistent.  Selecting out a group (in your case “liberals”) for enforcement is not what law enforcement officers are sworn to do.  And probably unconstitutional (see numerous court cases on profiling).  But then knowledge isn’t your thing, intolerance, exaggeration and hyperbole are right in your wheelhouse.

    Meanwhile, from the Milwaukee County medical examiner:
    “To date, Milwaukee County has recorded 119 homicides compared to 130 for the entire year of 2019.”
    Little Chicago, Milwaukee is.
