Chicago mayor objects to reporter using the term ‘mob’ to describe dozens of looters: ‘That’s not appropriate’

Chicago Mayor Brandon Johnson gave a public press conference following the arrest of forty people between the ages of 12-20 for reckless conduct misdemeanors in Chicago’s South Loop Sunday night. “Respectfully, these [are] large gatherings,” Johnson said, “It's important that we speak of these dynamics in an appropriate way ... This is not to obfuscate what has taken place ... unfortunately, arrests were made. Unfortunately, some damage was caused. And the level of sensitivity and patience that our officers expressed, I'm appreciative of that."
