Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot’s condemnation of her own police officers over the fatal shooting of 13-year-old criminal suspect Adam Toledo wasn’t enough to stop left-wing agitators from “protesting” in her neighborhood.

After the release Thursday of the bodycam footage from Toledo’s shooting, Lightfoot held a press conference during which she condemned her police officers over their history of “police violence and police misconduct.”

We must continue to face and not ignore the fact that Chicago, as well as way too many parts of our country, has a long legacy of police violence and police misconduct that have left far too many residents, especially those who are black and brown, in a constant state of fear and pain,” she said.

About 24 hours later, the agitators she’d presumably been trying to appease showed up at her neighborhood to protest Toledo’s shooting.

Watch (*Language warning):

During the March 29th shooting, the 13-year-old kid ran from the police after he allegedly fired a gun at a passing vehicle — an action that could have killed the passengers.

Bodycam footage released Thursday showed Toledo being fatally shot during the ensuing chase. Because of his age, the anger over his death has been especially loud.

But as noted by the various co-hosts of Fox News’ “The Five,” nobody has yet to raise attention to the fact that an armed 13-year-old had been roaming the streets in the middle of the night.

Nor has any attention been paid to the fact that the cops had been after Toledo because he’d allegedly fired a gun at a passing car.

The “protests” near Lightfoot’s home in the Chicago neighborhood of Logan Square eventually devolved into a riot as the agitators began tussling with the police.

Watch:

The protests and rioting in Chicago were relatively lightweight in comparison to the full-fledged riots that broke out in other cities across the nation.

Over in Brooklyn Center, Minnesota, where a criminal suspect was fatally last shot weekend while resisting arrest, over 100 rioters were arrested after they reportedly breached a barrier surrounding the city’s police station, according to Fox News.

Meanwhile in Portland, Oregon, a far-left “utopia” known for its never-ending riots, left-wing extremists wreaked havoc throughout the city and even set an Apple store on fire.

Watch:

The entire country has been awash in violent rioting from left-wing extremists for nearly a year straight now thanks to the media-amplified narrative that there’s an epidemic of police unjustly killing criminal suspects.

But of the over 6,200 fatal police shootings documented in a police shooting database maintained by The Washington Post, only six percent involved unarmed suspects and only two percent involved unarmed suspects who hadn’t been fleeing (i.e., resisting arrest).

Toledo, the youth fatally shot in Chicago, had been both armed and fleeing the police. As a result, both CNN’s resident law enforcement analyst and the head of the Chicago Police Union both agreed this week that the shooting was justified.
