Lightfoot blames “guns & the violence they bring” after Chicago cop’s tragic death

Just hours after Chicago police officer Ella French was killed at a traffic stop, Mayor Lori Lightfoot tweeted about the tragedy, blaming “guns & the violence they bring”

Lightfoot wrote:

Today is an official day of mourning for the city.

We lost a young officer. I offer my condolences to her mother, brother, family and friends. Please keep this officer, the officer in the hospital and CPD in your prayers.

Some say we don’t do enough for the police. Others say we do too much. All of this must stop.

We have a common enemy: it’s guns & the violence they bring.
