A shocking video has emerged from this past weekend’s ‘Teen Takeover’ riots in Chicago, showing a woman and man being attacked by a throng of black teens on a doorstep, screaming in terror, and Mayor Lori Lightfoot’s focus was on making sure the downtown violence was not characterized as “mayhem.”

Hundreds of teenagers flooded the streets and were seen setting cars on fire, clashing with police officers, smashing windows, and attacking innocent bystanders. At least two people were shot during the chaos.

Video posted online shows a woman being violently attacked by what appears to be a group of these teenagers.


In a later interview with Fox News, the woman seen in the video relays her version of what happened – she and her boyfriend came across the large group of teens, where she was pushed. The large mob beating came after her boyfriend attempted to stand up for her.

Lori Lightfoot – Chicago Riots Were Not ‘Mayhem’

Despite volumes of evidence showing the Chicago riots stemmed from the social media-organized ‘Teen Takeover’ were violent, Mayor Lori Lightfoot’s focus was on making sure people knew they were – you guessed it – mostly peaceful.

When a reporter described the scene as “mayhem,” the outgoing mayor took umbrage.

“I’m not going to use your language, which I think is wrong, to say it was ‘mayhem,'” she fired back.

“The vast majority of the young people who came downtown came downtown because it was great weather and an opportunity to enjoy the city,” she claimed. “That’s absolutely and entirely it.”

Ah, what person didn’t enjoy nice weather in their youth by randomly torching vehicles and attacking people they didn’t even know? Am I right?

“There are a few that came with different intentions,” she added, downplaying what really happened. “They have and they will be dealt with.”

Narrator: They won’t be dealt with.

Lightfoot’s unwillingness – whether intentional or not – to grasp reality is part of the reason she recently became the first Chicago mayor in 40 years to lose re-election.

Other Democrats Downplay Violence

To be fair, Lori Lightfoot wasn’t the only Democrat doing their best to downplay violence from the Chicago riots.

Illinois state senator Robert Peters, who represents parts of Chicago, said the Chicago riots were simply a form of “mass protest.”

“I would look at the behavior of young people as a political act and statement,” Peters tweeted. “It’s a mass protest against poverty and segregation.”

No, it’s a bunch of scumbags with no parental supervision knowing law enforcement and the criminal justice system will do nothing to curb their behavior.

And lest you think anything will be improving in Chicago any time soon, here’s Chicago Mayor-elect Brandon Johnson urging people not to “demonize” the poor, poor teenagers.

“In no way do I condone the destructive activity we saw in the Loop and lakefront this weekend. It is unacceptable and has no place in our city,” Johnson stated.

Wait for it … Here comes the ‘however.’

“However, it is not constructive to demonize youth who have otherwise been starved of opportunities in their own communities.”

Johnson’s solution was in line with what local-level Democrats always suggest – build the kids a park for them to hang out.

“Our city must work together to create spaces for youth to gather safely and responsibly, under adult guidance and supervision, to ensure that every part of our city remains welcome for both residents and visitors,” he said.

The ‘space’ those in the above video should be occupying for the next few years should have a concrete slab and four walls, with one of the walls having a door with large bars running from the floor to the ceiling.
