Chicago Mayor Threatens Residents With Jail Time

(AbsoluteNews.com) – Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot gave residents a stern warning over the weekend saying they will be cited and even jailed if they do not comply with social distancing and stay-at-home orders.

This comes after the police were called to break up a party with over 150 people in attendance.

She went on to say she was worried that the “nice weather” would potentially cause an increase in coronavirus cases as people would stop following the state’s guidelines altogether. 

Along with making non-compliance threats, she also had the audacity to ask residents to anonymously tattle to law enforcement on anyone having large gatherings.

Chicago is a state plagued by a high crime rate and both the city and state are releasing prisoners to help stop the spread of the virus. And now, it appears the innocent are subject to being treated the same way a violent criminal would be treated by law enforcement.

In the past 24 hours (May 5), the state of Illinois has had 2,341 new COVID-19 cases with a total of 63,840.
