WGN News: Cook County Commissioner on city's response to looting

[VIDEO] I'm sharing this with you to show one response to the looting that took place early on Monday overnight. Brandon Johnson is a sitting Cook County Commissioner representing the first district of Cook County.

The WGN anchors states Commissioner Johnson is calling for defunding the police. Johnson explains why these individuals were looting on Monday. Johnson explains that what we saw earlier this week is an expression of frustration and anguish with regards to poverty over many generations....

Here we go he's excusing this behavior. The worst part of this behavior is it wasn't just another Black person shot by police, it was misinformation that even the Mayor of Chicago had to take to twitter to address.
Misinformation causes anguish and frustration over proverty during the course of many generations. I had to turn this off once I heard him start with the excuses. Is there any leader in the Democratic machine that is willing to stand up to this lawlessness. Where is the leadership?


  1. If poverty is the cause, then food, milk and diapers would have been looted. Instead, electronics and expensive clothes were looted.

  2. Chicago crime isn't a part of a Cook County Commissioner's duties. 🤔(☉。☉)!

    1. You're right it's not. I'd rather this Commissioner was part of the solution instead of justifying the problem.

  3. If poverty was (always) the cause of crime, there would have been tons of crime, during the Great Depression (1929-1933) when "everyone" was poor. ಠ﹏ಠ

    The big crimes then were Al Capone and bootlegging. ಠ﹏ಠ
