The Guard will carry out a limited mission to help manage street closures and will not interfere with peaceful protestors exercising their first amendment rights. 

“At the request of Mayor Lori Lightfoot, I am activating the Illinois National Guard to support the City of Chicago in protecting our communities and keeping people safe,” said Governor JB Pritzker. 

“This is an immensely challenging moment for our city, our state, and our country, one born from decades and centuries of systemic racism.

“To those peacefully expressing the pain, fear, and rage of this moment, I hear you.

“Your voices matter.

“We must address the profound injustices in our society and bring about real and meaningful change.”

National Guard to Chicago — 6 Comments

  1. Its a free for all out there—surrounding burbs by the city and up to Gurnee down to Calumet City.

    Easy pickings on any store or mall chosen, with a fire thrown in every once in a while.

    Cops nowhere, Guard still polishing their boots and starching their uniforms….worthless, again, Pritzker.

  2. They don’t mind these “peaceful protests” but they sure hated the actual peaceful protests that declared Pritzker to be like a Nazi for trying to enforce his illegal shelter in place orders.

  3. The media is clamping down on the mass rapes in Chicago the last few days

  4. the boohooing crying of kizzie who just shows how over her head they are is just sickening… to watch turns my stomach.. the one who was just recently saying I will throw you in Jail… has no idea who they are speaking to
