On Thursday, Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot defended herself during a press conference, after she banned protestors on the block that she lives in.
She claims that her home and her family have received threats, stating that she has “a right to make sure that her home is secure.” She added, “I’m going to do everything I can to make sure that they are protected.”
Lightfoot declared, “This is a different time like no other. And I’m not going to make any excuses for the fact that, given the threats that I have personally received, given the threats to my home and my family, I’m going to do everything I can to make sure that they are protected. And I make no apologies whatsoever for that. We are living in very different time[s]."
"And I’ve seen the threats that have come in, and I have an obligation to keep my home, my wife, my 12-year-old, and my neighbors safe. The deployments that are there are there when they are necessary. It’s not a 24-hour thing. And I think that residents of this city, understanding the nature of the threats that we are receiving, on a daily basis, on a daily basis, understand that I have a right to make sure that my home is secure," she continued.
She also declared that she and her family didn't sign up for danger, “We have a right, in our home, to live in peace, just as every resident in our city does.”
So she is okay with all the other protests, riots and violence as long as they aren't at her front door? Alrighty then.
