The mayor’s remarks come after the death of a teenager over the weekend when a gunman shot them at Millennium Park. The mayor commented in a tweet that people in Chicago should be able to come into the city and enjoy public spaces without having to worry about their safety. Is Mayor Lightfoot finally realizing how big of a problem crime is becoming in her city? It appears that may be the case, but one question still remains… will it be enough?
