Chicago mayor’s solution for crime? Ditch cash, ‘use other forms of transactions’

Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot is coming up with “concrete solutions” for rampant crime in her city, but her constituents might not feel any safer.

Lightfoot appeared to be quite proud of her “solution,” prefacing it by calling out “rhetoric” and “sound bytes” that don’t offer any real answers for her ailing community during a mayoral debate.


“Heard a lot of rhetoric, a lot of sound bytes, but not a lot of concrete solutions on how we get the job done and make our residents and our workers safe,” she said. “We’re doing that, every single day.”

After being pressed for a concrete example of her “concrete solution” the mayor enlightened the public on all the hard work she’s been doing.

“We have been in Little Village working with those street vendors to address the nature of the crime, making sure that we’re doing things in concert with them, to help them make sure that their money is secure, not use [cash] if at all possible, use other forms of transactions to take care of themselves,” she explained.

Shockingly, this didn’t go over very well on Twitter:
