Note the multiple “mass shootings” – all of which were gang violence related.

But the Mayor doesn’t want to talk about gang violence.

Instead, he wants more “investments” in the same failed policies and programs that have given his city the moniker Murder City, USA. From WGNTV:

CHICAGO — Mayor Brandon Johnson says he’s focused on long-term investments to help solve the city’s ongoing issue with gun violence.

Unlike Mayor Lightfoot, Mayor Brandon Johnson does not do accountability Mondays to analyze weekend violence. In fact, at an event on Monday, Johnson avoided commenting on shootings and murders over the past weekend. Instead, he highlighted investments

The Johnson administration safety plan includes $100 million for violence prevention, massive youth employment and 400 new civilian police positions. But as the mayor implements his strategy, some city leaders have grown restless.

What the media doesn’t report is that “violence prevention” programs include paying gang members and other offenders justice-impacted individuals $200 per day to “interrupt” violence before it happens.  Yes, $52,000 per year for those “working” five-day workweeks, to supposedly mediate gang beefs before they turn violent.

Illinois already pays between $200M and $300 million on so-called “violence prevention” programs.

Clearly they’re working well.
