Watch: College Kid Shreds Liberal Loon Mayor Lightfoot For Killing Chicago
University of Chicago Senior, Audrey Unverferth, scorched lying Chicago Mayor Lightfoot after she told residents that crime was on a decline, when in fact, murder is still reaching new peaks, and Lightfoot continues to support and promote anti-police groups. In an op-ed titled "Yet Another One Of My UChicago Peers Was Brutally Murdered By A Stray Bullet In Lori Lightfoot’s Crime-Infested City" Audrey makes note of each student murdered under Mayor Lightfoot's failed leadership:
"Lightfoot’s city is falling to pieces, but she refuses to effectively address the problem. During a recent press conference, she made the absurd assertion that Chicago “crime is on the decline.”
“All of our major indices show a decline in our crime, and our homicides and our shootings year over year are down,” she claimed. This is such a blatant lie that it’s offensive Lightfoot thinks her fellow Chicagoans are dumb enough to fall for it. We aren’t."
According to NBC News, Chicago Police Department Superintendent David Brown says “Homicides are up by 5 percent and shootings are up by 17 percent this year compared to the same period last year.” As of mid-June, the Chicago Sun-Times reports that 195 more people have been shot in Chicago in 2021 than in 2020, reaching a total of 1,587. This count doesn’t include the 90-plus victims like Lewis who have been viciously attacked since then.
Her article continues to blast the Dim-Dem for assuming Chicago voters are oblivious after Lightfight made an absurd claim:
"Brown also says criminals are being released and—wait for it—committing more crimes. Imagine that: when Lightfoot fails to hold criminals accountable, they’re emboldened to keep terrorizing her city.
As if leftist radicals’ response to Chicago’s surging crime rates couldn’t get any dumber, members of my university’s incoming student government plan to “work toward the disarming, defunding, and abolition of [the University of Chicago’s Police Department (UCPD)] by amplifying the work of groups such as CareNotCops.”
Audrey took her fight further by meeting with Daily Caller host, Samantha Renck, where the young student continued to scorch Lightfoot in the name of her fallen fellow classmates.
Mayor Lightfoot can tell residents that crime is on a decline all she wants— All the lies in the world aren't going to change what voters see on a daily basis in the rapidly declining city.
