Safety And Security For Me But Not For Thee

Mayor Lori Lightfoot defends ban on protesters on her block: ‘I have a right to make sure that my home is secure’ — But you ‘galley slave proles’, not so much.

Lightfoot refused to elaborate on the specific threats, but said she receives them daily against herself, her wife and her home. Comparisons to how the Police Department has protected previous mayors’ homes, such as Rahm Emanuel’s Ravenswood residence, are unfair because “this is a different time like no other,” Lightfoot told reporters.
