Hundreds of protesters took to Logan Square in Chicago on Thursday to call for defunding the Chicago Police among other things as federal law enforcement officers are set to be deployed by US President Donald Trump to deal with a spike in violence in the city.
On Wednesday, July 22, Trump announced a surge of federal law enforcement into cities ran by Democrats, including Chicago, as part of his “law and order” campaign.
Chicago is experiencing a growing number of gun-related incidents, with the city’s official statistics reporting over 400 murders so far this year, compared to 275 during the same period last year.
