Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot has been slapped with a lawsuit for allegedly only conducting one-on-one interviews with non-White reporters.

Thomas Catenacci, a reporter with the ultra-conservative news outlet The Daily Caller, is demanding a judge to order the CEO of America’s third-largest metropolis to abolish this unconstitutional and discriminatory policy, Black America Web reports.

Catenacci said he filled out requests to interview the mayor on May 20, 2021, and followed up twice, but the inquiries went unanswered from Lightfoot’s office. He claims that, at the same time, she gave an audience to a Latino reporter.

Even the Latino reporter found Lightfoot’s policy on this matter highly questionable.

Lightfoot did state that she has grown weary of only White reporters covering her in a written letter sent out to Chicago-based media outlets, according to BlackAmericaWeb.com.

“In the time since I was elected, our country has faced an historic reckoning around systemic racism,” Lightfoot wrote in reference to the social quake caused by the passing of George Floyd on Memorial Day 2020. “In looking at the absence of diversity across the City Hall press corps and other newsrooms, sadly it does not appear that many of the media institutions in Chicago have caught on and truly have not embraced this moment.”

Chicago police are looking for a man who tried to kidnap a 5 year-old girl

Chicago police are looking for the man who was caught on video trying to kidnap a 5-year-old girl – and offering her mother money for the child before trying to pull her away by the hair, authorities said. 

The girl and her mother were walking on the sidewalk of West Fullerton Avenue near North Leclaire Avenue just before 12 p.m. Thursday when the stranger began following them, the Chicago Police Department said Saturday.

He then began a conversation with the mother and offered her an unspecified amount of cash for the child.

But the mother refused, at which point the suspect “attempted to grab/pull the juvenile by the hair towards him,” police said.

The mother and daughter were able to safely get away from him.

Investigators have described the suspect as being a Hispanic male with bright red hair and a thin beard, who is between 20 and 25 years old, 5-foot-6 to 5-foot-7 inches tall, and 150 to 160 pounds. He was wearing a black t-shirt, a black hat and red shorts.

Police are asking that anyone with information related to the crime call the Area Five Detective Bureau at 312-746-6554.

A 26-year-old mother shot multiple times in a drive-by shooting was among six killed Monday alone in Mayor Lori Lightfoot’s (D) Chicago.

The first shooting homicide on Monday occurred just before 4:30 a.m., when a 70-year-old woman was ambushed and shot to death while sitting in her car outside a grocery store.

The Chicago Sun-Times reported two men “were in the 5000 block of West St. Paul Avenue” when someone opened fire on them about 12:35 p.m. Both men were killed.

ABC 7 explained a 26-year-old mother, Kristina de Jesus, was shot multiple times during a drive-by attack outside her home Monday evening. The mother of two was taken to a hospital where her six-year-old son kept asking doctors to get her to wake up.

It is just the latest tragic example of a chronic wave of gun violence that has afflicted the city for years, as Breitbart News has continually pointed out:ahawkinshttps://imasdk.googleapis.com/js/core/bridge3.475.0_en.html#goog_1406483084

Everything about her was innocent.

Three major U.S. cities struggling to curb a surge in gun violence collectively had at least 70 people shot, 16 dead, including a 7-year-old girl, in multiple shootings this weekend, according to police.

The shootings in New York, Philadelphia and Chicago came as all three cities have seen sharp increases in the numbers of shootings in 2021.

In Chicago, at least 52 people were shot between 6 p.m. on Friday and 11:59 p.m. Sunday, nine of them fatally, according to the Chicago Police Department. Twenty-three of the shootings occurred over just a 4-hour period between 12:26 a.m. and 4:30 a.m. on Sunday, according to incident reports reviewed by ABC News.

Just before 3 p.m. on Sunday, a 7-year-old girl was killed and her 6-year-old sister was seriously wounded when someone opened fire on a parked vehicle they were sitting in the Belmont Central neighborhood on the city’s Northwest Side, police said. The 7-year-old was shot in the chest and later died at a hospital.

Regina Broughton told ABC station WLS in Chicago that her granddaughter, Serenity Broughton, was the child who was killed and Serenity’s little sister, Aubrey, is fighting for her life at Loyola University Medical Center in Chicago.

Prior to this weekend, more than 2,123 people had been shot in Chicago this year, which is a 12% increase from the same time period in 2020, according to police department crime statistics. Before this weekend, Chicago has recorded 478 homicides, a 2% increase over last year at this time.

The shootings this weekend in Chicago followed last weekend’s violence, which saw 73 people shot in the city, 11 fatally.
