Lightfoot said the public has a responsibility to help apprehend the looters.
???Give no shelter to the criminals,??? Lightfoot said. ???People in [the] neighborhoods know who these folks are. … This is your time to step up. … We cannot do this without you. … We are not going to let our city be taken over by criminals and vigilantes.???
It hasn’t worked, it won’t work. People are terrified. The mayor needs a new line. Like this one, unveiled for the occasion:
???You have no right, no right to take and destroy the property of others,??? Lightfoot said. ???We are coming for you. … I don???t care what justification was given for this. There is no justification.???
What does she mean, and she might have said it before (I don’t remember it). But it’s supposed to be a sign of determination. How many take her seriously?
