Chicago’s Chaos Expands To Millennium Park As Mayor Has No Answers For How To Stop Madness

Videos by OutKick

Are you planning an annual trip to Chicago to see the Christmas lights, enjoy a nice stroll through Millennium Park and get all romantic for the holiday season? You might want to think twice about that plan. Chicago’s moron mayor was at a podium Sunday to explain how she’s going to stop what happened Saturday at the tourist spot where dozens of youths were arrested and a CTA bus driver was beaten.

Police say the bus driver stopped his bus to inspect it after hearing a loud pop and was attacked by a man and a woman on North Michigan Ave., near the Millennium Park skating rink and the Bean sculpture. The bus driver was punched “several times” before the assailants fled, police say.

That was just the start of the problems at Millennium Park where 21 juveniles were arrested after a fight broke out within a large group that had congregated. Police say a 15-year-old boy was shot in the arm after bumping into another teen, who pulled a gun and shot the boy, as part of the park chaos.

One cop was left with a broken arm in the madness.

That’s right, the place where you used to go for a nice casual stroll to enjoy the big-city lifestyle in December is currently so bad that Lightfoot had to show up to a press conference Sunday and explain how she’s going to regain control of an out-of-control city.

Now Lori’s pissed off at the parents. “These kids have to take responsibility, but I’m going to say the parents have to take responsibility,” she told the Chicago media. “Do you know where your kid is? Are you making sure that you’re talking to your children about how they should act in a large crowd?”

It’s highly unlikely any of the parents were watching her press conference.

A week ago, she blamed juvenile judges for the chaos caused by an 11-year-old boy who’s being called a “prolific” carjacker. That boy is accused of sticking a gun in the face of a woman and stealing her BMW.

In other news, it was another typical 9 dead, 23 wounded weekend in Chicago. Chicago’s moron mayor has no plan, no way out of this chaos and now she has huge groups of youths wreaking havoc on the tourist hotspots.

It’s not just the Millennium Park area that’s becoming a huge issue. Magnificent Mile is being targeted by retail theft gangs that have smashed windows and have pulled off heists such as four men running into a Burberry store and taking off with handbags “worth tens of thousands of dollars,” according to CBS-Chicago.

“We don’t want to be become the headlines, like San Francisco,” Rob Karr, president and chief executive officer of the Illinois Retail Merchants Association, told the TV station, “but we’re pushing in that direction.”

Lightfoot leaves Tuesday for San Francisco where she’ll be fundraising for her 2023 reelection campaign.

    • A ‘baby mama’ and ‘baby daddy’ are not “parents”…..and don’t want to be “parents”. Lightfoot, or anyone on the left, won’t admit it’s a cultural problem, and therefore never address it….so they’ll continue to blame ‘guns’, which is like blaming cars for car wreaks.

  1. New business model: give $10,000 to inner city kids to steal Monets, Picassos, Seurats, etc. Nobody will stop them, and you just turn around and sell them to Saudis and Chinese.

    Carjacking BMWs is small potatoes

  2. The destruction of America. Let’s let in more illegals who hate America to speed up the process. My only wish is that these thugs and punks will go into wealthy areas and create havoc among the liberal elites.
