Question: How many agitators are needed to direct a mob? And of course the juvenile, obligatory Trump crack. That’s what’s on the writer’s mind? Please. We know your ranks are almost all Democrats. Something here to distract from Chicago’s and Illinois’ woeful political leadership?
Few of those arrested in Chicago during the unrest that followed George Floyd’s death were from out of state, despite the Trump administration’s insistence that outside agitators were to blame for the looting and destruction that followed peaceful protests here and in other cities over police use of force.
