A Chicago woman experienced firsthand the consequences of the city’s failures to ensure its citizens have police protection.

The woman, only identified as “Michelle,” waited for hours for a police response Wednesday after experiencing a home invasion, according to WMAQ-TV, the NBC station in the Windy City.

The suspects entered the home in the upscale Wicker Park district after Michelle let her dog out about 12:30 p.m., WMAQ reported.

When she saw two men wearing masks inside her home, she screamed, “I am calling the police,” she told WMAQ.

“And they bolted,” she told the station.

She was lucky they did.

Michelle called 911 after the incident, with a dispatcher telling her to wait for officers outside.

However, the cops didn’t show up, according to WMAQ.

She repeatedly called back, the station reported. On the sixth call back, she asked to speak to a supervisor.

Do we need more police officers in big cities?

“A gentleman got on and said, ‘sorry to say we have no units to send you’,” Michelle told the station. “Then there was an awkward pause.”

The man, apparently a 911 supervisor, even went so far as to ask Michelle to lobby her city alderman to provide the Chicago Police Department with adequate funding.

“He also recommended I call my alderman and I said, ‘why?’ and he said encourage him to hire more police,” Michelle told WMAQ.

When officers finally arrived, they expressed apologies for the lack of a timely response, Michelle said.

It had taken no less than four hours and six different 911 calls to yield an on-scene law enforcement response.

“The officers who did show up cared and were apologetic it took so long to get them there,” she told WMAQ.

Chicago Mayor Brandon Johnson has had an adversarial relationship with the city’s police department since his inauguration last year.

The mayor declined to attend the funeral of slain Chicago Police Department officer Luis Huesca — after the family of the deceased asked him to stay away.

JUST IN: Chicago mayor Brandon Johnson will *not* attend the funeral of Officer Luis Huesca. We’re told the family asked Johnson and other politicians who they don’t feel adequately support the police to stay away.

Michelle told WMAQ she has contacted her local alderman’s office and is awaiting the chance to meet with him in person.

She was also adamant that she was not blaming the cops in the case.

“I don’t think it is the police department’s fault they are overstaffed and overwhelmed,” she said.

A Note from Our Deputy Managing Editor:

I heard a chilling comment the other day: “We don’t even know if an election will be held in 2024.”

That wasn’t said by a conspiracy theorist or a doomsday prophet. No, former U.S. national security advisor Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn said that to the founder of The Western Journal, Floyd Brown.

Gen. Flynn’s warning means that the 2024 election is the most important election for every single living American. If we lose this one to the wealthy elites who hate us, hate God, and hate what America stands for, we can only assume that 248 years of American history and the values we hold dear to our hearts may soon vanish.

The end game is here, and as Benjamin Franklin said, “We must all hang together, or assuredly we shall all hang separately.”

All of this means that without you, it’s over. We have the platform, the journalists, and the experience to fight back hard, but Big Tech is strangling us through advertising blacklists, shadow bans, and algorithms. Did you know that we’ve been blacklisted by 90% of advertisers? Without direct support from you, our readers, we can’t continue the fight.

Can we count on your support? It may not seem like much, but a Western Journal Membership can make all the difference in the world because when you support us directly, you cut Big Tech out of the picture. They lose control.

A monthly Western Journal Membership costs less than one coffee and breakfast sandwich each month, and it gets you access to ALL of our content — news, commentary, and premium articles. You’ll experience a radically reduced number of ads, and most importantly you will be vitally supporting the fight for America’s soul in 2024.

We are literally counting on you because without our members, The Western Journal would cease to exist. Will you join us in the fight?
