Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot Institutes Teen Curfew in Attempt to Curb Gun Violence

After a shooting at Chicago’s famous Millennium Park killed a teenager over the weekend, Mayor Lori Lightfoot has announced she will institute a 10 p.m. weekend curfew for minors. The Chicago Tribune reports that the Windy City does already have an 11 p.m. curfew for minors, but Lightfoot has moved that up to 10 p.m. This comes after an announcement on Sunday that minors will be allowed in Millennium Park after 6 p.m. on weekends if they are accompanied by an adult.

[i]Why didn't someone think of this before?
It's so easy!
Make it illegal for criminals carrying stolen guns to leave the house!

Chicago: 100% Democrat owned, 100% utter chaos.
@graphite isn’t that why Boeing left Chicago? Kill jobs. Economically destroy cities.

@soar2newhighs Probably.

Who’s going to enforce that ? Her defunded and handcuffed police department?

The only police who weren't defunded and handcuffed are the ones who guard her and her house.

Only someone as smart as Mayor Lightfoot could have thought of this.
With the violent crime that plagues Chicago anyone really think the CPD is going to be able to effectively enforce any curfews? They have one now for 11 PM- how’s that working out?

I'm sure the murderers are respecting the curfew laws and getting all their killing done before hand.

@Budwick yeah, they don’t want that dreaded slap on the wrist.

How ingenious of Mayor Groot!!! It's like placing a band-aid on a multiple gunshot victim.

that is one Obama holdover that scares me. literally and figuratively.

It doesn't have anything to do with kids shooting each other in the park. Gas is $4.50 a gallon and nobody is driving, they can't write tickets for speeding or parking, that lost revenue is going to be replaced with tickets for being out late.

@Roadsterrider Not true. Gas in Chicago is over $5/gallon. And they have a very lucrative business hitting drivers for everything from parking tickets to red light infractions and now speeding. The mayor is an idiot. She's chased away far more revenue than the CPD can replace by arresting kids. After all, they don't even hold felons any more. Every criminal gets a pass and THAT is the problem.
@carpediem Democrats = dysfunction, disillusionment, denial, despair, deprivation and sadly, demise of people and cities.

@soar2newhighs sad but so true
