Mollie was in the Council chambers, not on zoom. It took the camera awhile to shift over to her:
No commission needed Mollie. Obviously life has no value to some people. When abortion can wipe out babies at will, shooting each other is just the next step. The only way to defeat violence is to lock up those who commit it.
We used to know that, illegally using or owning a gun requires long prison sentences. That reduced crime for decades until leftists went soft on crime. The two murders this year are a direct result of the Defund the Police garbage and Illinois laws allowing criminals a free pass back on the streets.
When Ward’s Council initiative is presented, the majority will probably vote with her. Talk will get the guns out of the hands of gangs. 😁🙄
More bleeding heart liberals (Jeff Crabill) managed to get penalties for unpaid parking tickets tabled until next month. The Council documentation isn’t clear, but the penalties are aimed at habitual offenders who refuse to pay the tickets. See 42:45. Some people owe thousands of dollars!
Jamie Mathy wants low income people to be abled to apply for assistance. 48:50. There is no proof low income people are those not paying their tickets.
Alderman Montney, Becker, and Urban voted against tabling Crabill’s motion.
The Council did provide a brilliant excuse:
Don’t go downtown and you won’t get parking tickets!
