Two ‘Police Reform’ Democrats Carjacked Less Than 24 Hours Apart

Kimberly Lightford and Mary Gay Scanlon

( – If you don’t believe in karma, this just might change your mind.

In less than 24 hours, two Democrat legislators who want to “reform” the police – almost always code for defunding the police or even abolishing the police – were the victims of armed, violent carjackings. One was even done in broad daylight.

According to the New York Post:

Two Democrats who supported police reform in Philadelphia and Chicago were both carjacked at gunpoint within 24 hours of each other.

“Illinois state Sen. Kimberly Lightford (D-Maywood) was targeted in suburban Chicago on Tuesday night, while Congresswoman Mary Gay Scanlon (D-Pa.) was carjacked Wednesday afternoon after an event in South Philadelphia.

“Lightford was driving with her husband, Eric McKennie, in Broadview at about 9:45 p.m. when three masked suspects in a Durango SUV hijacked the couple’s black Mercedes.

“Police said “multiple gunshots” were fired during the incident but Lightford and her husband weren’t physically hurt.” [emphasis added]

Further, “Scanlon, a fellow Democrat, was carjacked at gunpoint in a separate incident as she returned to her blue Acura MDX at about 2:45 p.m. Wednesday.” [emphasis added]

We’re certainly glad that neither lawmaker nor anyone with them was hurt.

Still, perhaps Democrats who want to defund police as part of police reform should rethink their positions – especially at a time when violent crime is on the rise all across the United States.
