Chicago looting triggers over 100 arrests, 13 officers hurt as mayor warns criminals: ‘We are coming for you’.
Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot slammed looters and rioters who descended upon the downtown area early Monday morning, calling the overnight events “an assault on our city” and telling criminals, “We are coming for you.”
Police said more than 100 people were arrested and at least 13 officers were hurt over the course of the events.
“We are waking up in shock this morning,” Lightfoot said. “These individuals engaged in what can only be described as brazen and extensive criminal looting and destruction. And to be clear, this had nothing to do with legitimate, protected First Amendment expression.”
