#1 It's just the way politics is in Chicago

Post by bernomatic »

Mayor Lori Lightfoot defended the Chicago Police Department’s ban on protesters being able to demonstrate on the block where she lives, telling reporters Thursday that she and her family at times require heightened security because of threats she receives daily.

Lightfoot refused to elaborate on the specific threats, but said she receives them daily against herself, her wife and her home. Comparisons to how the Police Department has protected previous mayors’ homes, such as Rahm Emanuel’s Ravenswood residence, are unfair because “this is a different time like no other,” Lightfoot told reporters.
So it's alright to "protest" in front of my home, but not yours?

She's a piece of work, but Chicago residents voted for her and all the rest of the corrupt, incompetent gang that runs the city and county, so they are getting what they deserve.

For a better information source on the goings on in the city, go to Second City Cop

This guy is an active duty Chicago cop and pulls no punches. The city has been trying to find out who he is for years and have had no success.

Interesting site Joe, I just gave it a glance but it looks like someone could spend hours going down a windy city tell all.

BTW, just an aside here. Cleveland, Ohio actually has more windy days than Chicago, however the nickname is said to come from all the blow hards in the the city politics, not anything to do necessarily with any natural phenomenon.
