In the absence of elected leadership and in the face of police standing by and watching looting in Chicago, Latin gangs are protecting their local businesses and running would be looters out of their neighborhoods.  It's hard to fault them for it, but do we really want street gangs acting as law enforcement?

Earlier today I blogged about Chicago having its deadliest day in 60 years. The city saw 18 murders in 24 hours on May 31. On that same day, Mayor Lori Lightfoot met with Chicago officials to discuss the mass riots and looting across the city in response to George Floyd's death. While Lightfoot raged against the chaos, she also told one alderman he was "100 percent full of shit" when he described his ward as a "virtual war zone."
