Video shared by a known TikToker has highlighted the dire situation created by the city of Chicago making their officers’ job harder to perform, showing officers being attacked in the street as onlookers mock them.
The video, shared to Instagram by Eric Pena from his TikTok channel, showed police being tossed around while they scuffled with police.
“The way this mayor has this police officers scared to do their job correctly,” Pena noted, adding that officers cannot pursue fleeing subjects without approval from a sergeant.
In the background of the video, people laughed and taunted the officers, going so far as to grab a dropped pair of handcuffs and run off.
“The city of Chicago is becoming a bigger joke than it ever was,” Pena added in the narration.
On Instagram, Pena captioned the video with his opinion of Mayor Lori Lightfoot’s policies.
“We need to support our Chicago police officers because Mayor Lightfoot does not care for them,” Pena wrote.
