We’re Going To Need Bigger Jails; And Smaller Cities

Chicago, like Seattle and Portland, is now under siege by the BLM Marxist-terrorists as the near North side (Miracle Mile) endured night two of rioting and looting.

“The mayor clearly has not learned anything since May, and she would be wise to understand that the people will keep rising up until the CPD is abolished and our Black communities are fully invested in.”

We’re going to need a much bigger jail

Trust me, this stuff is not difficult to grasp. Once people no longer feel safe they will leave.

The coordinated looting that overwhelmed police and left huge swaths of downtown and the Near North Side ransacked threatens to turn Chicago into pre-renaissance Detroit…

You don’t want to be pre-renaissance Detroit, a place where once there were buildings

Businesses that survived the stay-at-home shutdown and sustained heavy losses during the looting in late May triggered by the death of George Floyd may be reluctant to rebuild for fear they won’t be protected. Even if they do, customers may not feel safe shopping, dining or going to the theater downtown.

Empty-nesters and young people drawn to the city by the nightlife and cultural attractions that made Chicago a magnet for corporate headquarters may abandon the city as well because they, too, no longer feel safe.  – Chicago-Sun Times

And they won’t come back. Certainly not in your lifetime.

Trust me citizens of Chicago, Seattle, Portland, New York, Minneapolis, LA, you don’t want to watch this play out. It’s slow, ugly, painful and seems terminal.

What happens when you’re done redistributing all the wealth

It will be decades before there is even talk about rebirth and decades more before anything begins to take root, if ever. So instead of destroying more American cities what do you say we send the terrorists to jail and let the rest of America get back to work.
