Gianno Caldwell slams election of progressive mayor as crime rises: 'What the hell were you thinking Chicago?'
Brandon Johnson defeated Chris Vallas in the Chicago mayoral election
By Ashley Carnahan | Fox News

Progressive candidate Brandon Johnson defeated former Chicago Public Schools CEO Paul Vallas in the Chicago mayoral election Tuesday, but some critics say his policies are worse than those of outgoing Mayor Lori Lightfoot.

Fox News’ Gianno Caldwell, whose teenage brother Christian was murdered in the Windy City last year, spoke out about Johnson’s win, saying it was "horrific" for Chicago residents.

"[This] to me was the signing of thousands of death certificates of people who don't have to die because of the policies of which he's advocated for," he said Wednesday on "Your World." "This is a guy who's defunded the police, who's advocated for that, who's defended rioters and looters, who's not thought about public safety, who the police department, the police union, rather, has said that multiple police officers would resign with his election at stake."

Caldwell argued Democrats and Republicans agreed Lightfoot’s leadership and policies were "horrific," but said Johnson "stands to be worse than her."

Johnson's priorities, according to his campaign website, range from "public safety and police reform" and "environmental justice" to "gender equity" and "education." Additionally, he has committed to promoting 200 detectives from rank-and-file officers to help ease caseloads and has argued for increased city spending on mental health care, schools and affordable housing to address the root causes of crime.

He has also supported having social workers and EMTs respond to some 911 calls instead of armed police officers.

  • I was a "conspiracy theorist". Now I'm just right.
With all the 'transparency and honesty' surrounding elections, I have to ask, was this election legitimate?

Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.

Precarious prediction

At some point, there will be a recall attempt on their new mayor
I have little interest in streamlining government or in making it more efficient, for I mean to reduce its size. I do not undertake to promote welfare, for I propose to extend freedom. My aim is not to pass laws, but to repeal them.

Precarious, indeed.
I doubt he'll be recalled.
He is EXACTLY what the people who voted for him WANT.
