BLM Activists Approach Chicago Police Station, Residents Make Them Regret It

Middle-class Americans are sick and tired of the Black Lives Matter protesters bringing mayhem to their neighborhoods. That’s why when BLM activists approached a Chicago police station, the residents mobilized and made them regret it. You’ll love this.

The good people of Englewood may have set the tone for dealing with protesters and rioters for the rest of the summer. After the organized pillaging and mayhem this weekend on the Magnificent Mile, the city of Chicago toughened up their security stance.

BLM set their sights on the Englewood neighborhood’s police precinct, but residents there pushed them out — literally.

A protest Tuesday started over a Chicago police-involved shooting and ended when Englewood residents pushed back. Expletives were dropped, and there was pushing and shoving, which forced the protesters to retreat.

A caravan started on 64th and Cottage Grove, and the BLM protesters eventually ended up in front of the 7th District police station, but it didn’t last long.

“If you ain’t from Englewood, get the F*** out of here,” longtime neighborhood resident Darryl Smith told the BLM.

“A lot of people saying the looting started because of Englewood. We are tired of Englewood getting a black eye, those people were opportunist,” Smith said.

Smith is very passionate about his community. It makes sense because he’s never left Englewood.

“I’ve lived in Englewood 51 years,” he said.

“Y’all don’t come out when a kid gets shot. Y’all come out when it’s got something to do with the f—ing police,” he yelled through a loudspeaker, according to the Chicago Sun-Times.

He says he’s not buying it and he and other Englewood residents had wanted the protesters from Black Lives Matter Chicago, Good Kids Mad City, and other groups to leave.

After some tense moments, the protesters were sent packing, marching away from the 7th District police station.

“We refuse to let anyone come to Englewood and tear it up,” said resident Charles McKenzie.

A video was captured of the residents, who were mostly African-American, chasing the BLM protesters out of their neighborhood.

“BLM protester really chanted ‘our streets; in #Englewood Chicago. Bad idea,” tweeted “Simulation Warlord, along with the video:

BLM Chicago practically celebrated mob rule in their statement Monday, claiming that the pillaging of the Magnificent Mile was a legitimate response to corporate exploitation. In response, the residents of Englewood had enough.

If BLM and their associates have any complaints after Englewood, they should rethink their agenda. The people we pay to keep order, protect our civil rights, and discourage mob actions are the very people BLM and their affiliates want to abolish: the police.

Meanwhile, their far-leftist mayor Lori Lightfoot got a wake-up call from BLM. 

“Black Lives Matter Chicago warned Mayor Lori Lightfoot on Monday that the renewed civil unrest that’s gripped the city throughout the summer won’t end until ‘the safety and well-being of our communities is finally prioritized,”‘ Chicago Sun-Times reports. 

At the demonstration later Monday, protesters held a sign that read, “Our futures have been looted from us … loot back.”

Ariel Atkins, 29, of the North Side, said looters should take “anything they want to take” as “reparations.”

“I don’t care if somebody decides to loot a Gucci, or a Macy’s, or a Nike, because that makes sure that that person eats, that makes sure that that person has clothes, that makes sure that that person can make some kind of money because this city obviously doesn’t care about them,” Atkins said.

“Police lie,” Atkins added.

She was referring to the police shooting of Latrell Allen. 

The Chicago Police Department announced Monday evening that 20-year-old Latrell Allen was charged with two counts of attempted murder and one count of unlawful possession of a weapon.

“About 2:30 p.m. Sunday, officers responded to a call of a person with a gun in an alley near the 5700 block of South Racine and saw a man matching the description take off on foot, Deputy Chief Yolanda Talley told reporters on Sunday,” Chicago Sun-Times adds.

During an ensuing chase, Allen allegedly turned to the officers and fired shots. Two officers then returned fire and struck Allen, whose condition was later stabilized at the University of Chicago Medical Center, authorities said.

BLM often says they want to abolish the police because the cops never save black lives. How many lives did those officers save when they encountered Latrell Allen, who was armed? Someone on that street saw Allen brandishing a weapon and called 911.

The residents of Englewood want a police presence, as do 81 percent of all African Americans according to a recent Gallup poll. They “want the same or increased levels of police presence in their neighborhoods.”

BLM does not stand for African-Americans. They care nothing about black lives. They are a domestic terrorist organization that is hellbent on bringing Marxism to America.
