Chicago alderman Raymond Lopez slammed Lori Lightfoot for enabling criminal behavior in Chicago, while discussing her mayoral campaign on “Tucker Carlson Tonight.”

RAYMOND LOPEZ: You know, I believe in the greatness of Chicago, but it’s definitely not the Chicago I grew up in. You know, I didn’t grow up in a city that coddles criminals, allows bad behavior and turns a blind eye to the plight of victims in our city. It’s Lori Lightfoot. As mayor, I will give a different direction, a sense of leadership, and a purpose to the city of Chicago that it hasn’t seen in a while. You know, you have to support first responders. You must support our police who are trying to maintain law and order. You must rebuild and grow an economy by expanding opportunity and allowing businesses to thrive, not just operating in a charity-driven society. And you have to provide basic city services to make sure that people, no matter what neighborhood they live in, get the services provided by their ratepayers.
