Lightfoot has defended the police actions which protect her home, referencing threats that have been made against her, her wife, and their home on a daily basis.
“I think that residents of this city, understanding the nature of the threats that we are receiving on a daily basis…understand I have a right to make sure that my home is secure,” said Lightfoot.
