Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot (D) snapped at reporters following questions about officer Ella French’s murder and the lead-up to officers turning their backs to the Mayor at the hospital.

The Daily Mail noted that a number of officers wanted a “bagpipe procession” while French’s body was being transported to the medical examiner’s office, but First Deputy Police Supt. Eric Carter rejected the idea, saying, “We don’t have 20 minutes for this s**t.”

Lightfoot supported Carter’s decision and suggested the officers pushing for the procession were trying to “hijack” the night.

She said, “There was — let me choose my words carefully — well-meaning but not well-organized group that wanted to hijack the procession, which would have meant that the family would have been delayed exponentially in getting to the morgue.”

The Chicago Sun-Times noted that Lightfoot pointed to restrictions issued by the coroner, suggesting that adding things to slow the procession would have been unfair to French’s family.

Reporters also brought up the fact that approximately 30 officers turned their backs to Lightfoot on Saturday night when she arrived at the hospital where French’s wounded partner was being treated. They asked if she had “forced her way into the hospital,” thereby angering the officers.

Lightfoot responded, “I don’t force my way anywhere. And that’s offensive, frankly, that you would ask me that question.”

Breitbart News pointed out that the father of French’s wounded partner reportedly “excoriated” Lightfoot to her face when she came to the 7th floor of the hospital.

The Chicago Sun-Times reported that sources indicated the father “blamed [Lightfoot] for what had happened,” yelling at her.

NBC 5 quoted Fraternal Order of Police President John Catanzara telling Fox News that Lightfoot was told not to go to the 7th floor because that was where the critically wounded officer’s family was waiting to speak with doctors. Lightfoot went to the 7th floor anyway, leading Catanzara to believe “[the Mayor] still thought she knew best and went up there against the advice of family.”

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.

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.
