VIDEOS: Chicago Police Overwhelmed by Mexican Independence Day Revelers

Americans celebrating Mexican Independence Day paralyzed downtown Chicago last night as police were overwhelmed by partying and petty crime

Police in Chicago, Illinois were overwhelmed last night due to revelers celebrating the independence of the United States’ southern neighbor.

Two or more people were shot last night as chaos gripped Chicago’s downtown area with revelers overwhelming police, throwing bottles, setting fires, and waving Mexican flags through the street to celebrate Mexico’s independence, CWB Chicago reported.

That outlet reports that some revelers climbed atop a bus to wave Mexican flags, burned a sports car while other vehicles “spun donuts in downtown intersections,” and generally causing low level violence.

One man was shot in the back as he exited his vehicle to fight someone, CWB Chicago explained. The other victim was being beaten by a group of men when he was shot in the head, though he is apparently in good condition.

Apparently, at least one officer was injured in the eye, and there were multiple reports from officers that revelers were attempting to pull them from their squad cars.

Videos have surfaced on social media showing streets filled with smoke, fire, Mexican flags, and revelers slowly making their way through a procession that paralyzed the city and left Chicago police flat footed.

Other videos showed dozens or hundreds of Mexican flags proudly displayed by Chicago-area revelers.

Other aerial videos showed the extent of the celebrations, while videos shot at street level show a festive but chaotic scene.

Mexican Independence Day was Friday, September 16. The country and its people – apparently, including the diaspora who left their homeland for the United States – celebrate the holiday to commemorate the beginning of a decade long revolution that saw the central American country break free from Spanish rule.

The holiday, which is often confused with Cinco de Mayo in the United States, explains National Geographic, “actually marks the moment in 1810 when Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla, a Catholic priest known as Father Hidalgo, made the first cry for independence.”

    Correction: Mexico is part of North America, not Central America.

      I think it is hilarious. I lived there once when it was nice. They all deserve what they get. I hope DeSantis throws more fuel on the fire and sends more of them to your oh so tolerant state.

    Three of my friends who moved here from Chicago are now scrambling to get their parents out of the Chicago area to escape the madness. The madness won’t end until the mad are no more. Presumably due to whatever GOD decides because apparently mankind can’t get the job done. Assuming, of course one believes in a higher power. Personally I think it’s going to come down to each one of us to get this particular job done because GOD doesn’t take sides these days as far as I can discern and our elected hirelings are ineffectual because they think ‘we’ work for ‘them’!…

      The “melting pot” historicly implies a willingness to integrate, to become one with the system. I understand heritage, my great grandparents were German and strived to learn to speak english. Our hespanic others are more about self and conquer.

        Bingo! Bringing the same thing you are trying to escape from seems to be a leftist trait, especially to blue staters that relocate to red states because blue states are broke, corrupt, and over-populated.

          Blue staters who go to red states are what I call “Dogs with Fleas!”
          They want to leave the bad fleas where they are escaping from but always bring a reserve of fleas with them because these people just can’t live without the fleas!!

    . . . another reason for teaching history in public schools . . . Mexican Independence Day, September 16, is a celebration of the Mexican people’s courage standing up to SPAIN . . . and like Cinco de Mayo . . . a celebration of the Mexican people’s courage standing up to FRANCE . . .

      Seems to me that when the hispanics come to America, they should be celebrating AMERICAN Independence. Because they’ve left Mexico to come here where (before Biden) life is better.
      Celebrating Mexican Independence when you’re (supposedly) now an American, and doing so in such a violent and chaotic manner tells me these hispanics have not/will not assimilate to American life. They’ll just act the way they did in Mexico. Which tells me many of these “immigrants” are not planning to assimilate at all. And many are going to lead a criminal lifestyle….at our expense. Bad Ju Ju IMO

    They need to take their Mexican flags home to Mexico. There is room for only one national flag in the U.S.A., and that’s Old Glory!

    Beetlejuice will say the Republicans did it. When in all actuality Beetlejuice and her democrat party are allowing this to happen. Your homes are next chicago. Then your businesses. And Beetlejuice won’t allow you to harm her new voting base. You know those here illegally who your party allows to vote. Well guess what? It’s been proven that these Mexicans you democrats allow to vote are actually conservative by nature. A few will be liberals but the vast majority polled are conservative. Another way Beetlejuice gets kicked in the azz.
