Mayor Lori Lightfoot of Chicago is no longer in charge of the city. The worst mayor in America publishes embarrassing TkTok videos, but crime is rife in that great American city. The most recent scandal was a carjacking on a busy highway in the middle of the city.
The footage of the crime that went viral on social media was recorded by a commuter. Three persons can be seen leaving a car following an accident in the footage down below. One is carrying a huge weapon and trying to carjack passing automobiles as they search for an exit as they walk along the highway.
The carjacker appears to offer the man filming the footage a clutch of cash in return for a trip. The commuting passenger declines him, and the armed thug drives off after carrying out his carjacking.
For Lightfoot, things only get worse. In Chicago over the weekend, at least 31 individuals were shot, eight of whom died.
On Friday night, a North Side park playground saw the shooting death of a 13-year-old kid, according to Chicago authorities.
Before 10:00 p.m., there was a shooting. near Lerner Park in the 7000-block of North Sacramento Avenue in the West Ridge area, according to police.
