Chicago student yells at ‘Mayor Lightfoot’s blatant lie’ about crime after the death of his classmate
University Chicago demand it Mayor Lori Lightfoot Thursday for her “blatant lie” about violent crime In town a few days after a classmate was killed by a stray bullet while returning home from an internship.
Audrey Unverfth said during her appearance on “Fox and Friends”.
Unverth described the meeting as a photo opportunity and an example of more “blank cliches” from the mayor of Chicago.
“I don’t have faith in Lightfoot anymore,” she said.
The Chicago Sun-Times reported that 20-year-old Max Lewis was commuting on the city’s green line during rush hour on July 1 of his internship at an investment firm in downtown Chicago. While he was sitting inside the train, a bullet went through the window and hit the back of his neck at 51st Street/Washington Park Station, the Chicago Police Department said.
He died Sunday morning after being taken off resuscitation equipment.
Despite not knowing Lewis personally, Unverfirth said all of her classmates were “devastated” by his “idiot” death.
In an op-ed from The Federalist Unverferth he said this: “I’ve ridden the CTA countless times. When my friends and I rode the train, we shouldn’t be afraid to get killed by stray bullets. When we’re sitting on the bus, we don’t have to worry that we’ll get killed with a knife.”
Lightfoot campaigned for mayor as a public safety expert, vowing Tuesday that “we will do everything we can to stop the violence.”
