Chicago Forced to Raise Bridges and Stop Public Transport to Curb Left-Wing Looting and Riots

(PatriotHeadline.com)- Chicago city officials were forced to raise the bridges and shut down some of the public transport networks to curb violent extremism and rioting taking place courtesy of Antifa and Black Lives Matter. The decision was made following widespread looting and rioting in the Magnificent Mile shopping district as well as downtown.

The city’s local NBC affiliate reported how the Chicago Transit Authority shut down all bus and train services downtown following requests from public safety officials. Buses stopped running to Fullerton, Ashland Avenue, and Cermak “until further notice” and all train services were suspended too. Bridges over the Chicago River were also lifted at 4:30 a.m. to stop the entrance of more people to riot.

Just think of that. Riots take place all night and even at 4:30 a.m. there are people trying to cross into the center of the city to continue the looting and destruction. And for what? Racial justice, right?

Huge amounts of destruction were seen early on Monday morning in the Magnificent Mile shopping district following a police officer shooting a young man and injuring him. Protesters took it as yet another opportunity to destroy the city, looting various high-end stores.

In the name of justice, these righteous Black Lives Matter and Antifa activists stole luxury goods from Louis Vuitton, Gucci, Coach, Apple, and Macy’s stores. In video footage of the riots, gunshots can also be heard.

Andy Ngo, the journalist best known for his work covering violence from Antifa, published video footage of looters breaking into Chicago Mall and looting.

How long can Democrats go on pretending this isn’t happening, and how long will the voters put up with Democratic Mayor Lori Lightfoot standing aside while people destroy the city she is meant to be representing and protecting?
