When the foundations of law and order break down, we are left with anarchy. Police officers, Chicago police officers in particular, have one of the toughest jobs in the world. I wish we lived in a…Continue

"Agreed. What's so hard about positioning flag persons in each direction to ensure safe passage, particularly during rush hour? "

"The streets of Chicago in some neighborhoods have become a war zone and there is no trust between those who serve to protect those streets and those who live on those streets. So maybe its time to rebuild the streets, like they did in Amsterdam."
