Chicago, IL — If an on duty detective isn’t safe from being mugged at gunpoint, your city has completely gone to the dogs. That’s the conclusion many in Mayor Lori Lightfoot’s gun controlled Windy City are reaching after a detective who was investigating a murder was held up at gunpoint by two armed thugs.
CWChicago has the story:
Two armed men attacked and robbed an on-duty Chicago police detective as he investigated a recent homicide in the South Shore neighborhood Monday evening, according to CPD. One suspect is in custody.
“Emergency, squad! Emergency, gimme some help,” the injured officer’s partner radioed seconds after the attack at 7:10 p.m. “They tried to rob my partner.”
The detectives were walking the 7700 block of South Yates when the robbers — one armed with a handgun and the other armed with a knife — moved in.
They jumped the cop from behind, physically attacked him, and began going through his pockets, police said. The officer’s partner intervened and the robbers ran from the scene.
The Chicago Sun-Times reported that one of the attackers was armed with a gun and the other with a knife.
The detective, a 26 year veteran of the Chicago Police Department, was taken to the hospital with injuries to his head and neck. He’s expected to make a full recovery.
Meanwhile, once more backup arrived, officers located and arrested one of the alleged muggers. The other is still at large.
Life In A Leftist City
Radical left Mayor Lori Lightfoot will never admit that the gun control policies she and her radical friends love to pass are the very reason that criminals act are so brazen.
After all, many of these criminals know that if anything happens to one of them while they’re in the act of committing a crime, BLM rioters will blame the police and burn half the city to the ground!
Gun control isn’t the solution. It’s the problem.
