A large group of Chicago locals, who were mostly made up of black residents, pushed back against the Black Lives Matter protesters in their city after being pushed to the limit by destructive looters.

As Chicago law enforcement blocked access with bridges being raised and expressway ramps closed to prevent more marauding, protester opted for the South Side, which saw a shootout with cops in an arrest that sparked more chaos.

Meanwhile, Englewood locals resisted BLM protesters who were campaigning to defund the police, Fox 32 reported.

“If you ain’t from Englewood, get the f–k out of here,” Darryl Smith, a local resident, shouted at protesters.

“Y’all don’t come out when a kid gets shot," he said.

"Y’all come out when it’s got something to do with the f—ing police,” he yelled through a loudspeaker, the Chicago Sun-Times reported.

“If your issue is with the police, take it to 35th and Michigan,” he shouted.

“Don’t come in Englewood with it.”

The rally moved to the police station where the officers involved in Sunday’s shootout were based, but was dispersed after angry residents pushed back.

“None of these motherf—ers are gonna be here tomorrow. That’s why I got a problem,” Duane Kidd, a lifelong Englewood resident, told the Sun-Times.

WATCH:

“If they would’ve gotten something incited with the police, who’s gotta deal with it tomorrow? The community. Not them."

“They’ll be somewhere sipping sangria somewhere. I’m telling you like it is," he stated.

The march soon dispersed following an hour-long standoff.

“We refuse to let anyone come to Englewood and tear it up,” one local, Charles McKenzie, told the station.

Even a grandmother of Allen, who was struck by return fire during the police shoot out, blasted the protesters saying there is “no excuse” for it.

“I don’t agree with the looting because that’s just an excuse to get what they want,” Joyce Brown told the Sun-Times.

Neon Nettle reported on Tuesday that BLM members descended on Chicago to rally against police, who arrested more than 100 looters and rioters following recent unrest that caused $60 million worth of damage to property and saw 13 police officers injured.

The rally, which was organized by Black Lives Matter Chicago, took place at a police station in the South Loop were looters were being held in custody.

One organizer described the looting tantamount to "reparations."

“I don’t care if someone decides to loot a Gucci or a Macy’s or a Nike store, because that makes sure that person eats,” said Ariel Atkins, a BLM organizer, NBC Chicago reported.
