Maybe they should quarantine law breakers?
But the mayor will through you in jail if you open your barber shop.
Outpacing Covid victims, yet the media remains silent, they need to have minute by minute reports and the police need shooter contact tracers.
So, six people died of COVID!
There will never be a vaccine for Africanization
This shows a callous disregard for public health and safety.
Where are the protests? Wheres bammy on this? Why isnt the anointed one using his powers or persuasion to stop this??
from the description of the shootings, the shooters did maintain proper social distancing rules, so they’re OK, and most likely won’t be arrested for such minor infraction of the rules. But, they better not go to work.
It’s not all over the news because there is no Whitey around to blame.
How could this be? The Honorable Mayor Beetlejuice said everybody was on mandatory lock-down.
I see they let the better shots out of jail because of Chiflu.
Good to see Chicago is opening back up regardless of what the mayor and governor says (sarc).
Fat fcuk Prickster and Lori the Gay Gremlin don't go for fudgin' the social distancing.
Where is the Arbery family attorney?
Oh never mind. Cant shake down some government for a multi million dollar payout
Chicago needs a new public service announcement:
“Shootings from less than six feet violate social distancing guidelines.
Murder from a safe distance!”
If Chicago banned all cars there wouldnt be any more drive by killings.
I think they have a lead poisoning problem worse than Covid that they should be focusing on.
They’ll add it to the COVID deaths because they were under pressure.
