Chicago Travel Advisory: Mayor Emanuel has lost control of the city

MEDIA ALERT:

KELLY ISSUES CHICAGO TRAVEL WARNING IN RESPONSE TO MONTROSE BEACH RIOT

“Mayor Rahm Emanuel has lost control of our city. No area is safe,” Kelly says

Chicago - The following is the statement of William J. Kelly, candidate for Mayor of Chicago, in response to Sunday’s violent riot at Montrose Beach and Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s feeble response:

“In light of Sunday’s violent riot at Montrose Beach, it is painfully clear that Mayor Rahm Emanuel has officially lost control of our city.Under his failed leadership, the Chicago Police cannot protect themselves. Emanuel refuses to hire more police officers and works the remainder of the force to exhaustion. He has done everything possible to deny citizens their basic legal right to concealed carry in violent Chicago – a city that is now known as the new ‘Murder Capital’ of the country.  Sadly, Mayor Emanuel’s handpicked police chief, Superintendent Garry McCarthy, has other priorities than the safety of the people of Chicago – which should be his only priority. Instead, his stated priority is the re-election of Mayor Emanuel.“ 

“That is why, regretfully, I am issuing this Chicago travel advisory and asking citizens around the country not to travel to Chicago. No area of Chicago is safe.”
