As a 45 year citizen who has lived here in Chicago all of my life, I can say for sure that is correct about the people's attitude toward this, the citizens don't care what Chicago police have to do to get rid of the crime problem here.

Then maybe the citizens need to organize, rise up and take matters into their own hands.

Oh ... that's right ... hardly any guns in the hands of the 'law abiding' ...

My personal plan is to trim 10% from every department across the board every year until we are running in the black. Then we look at priorities. It so happens that military is a COTUS priority where some other things are not.


Wow, You can do that? I'm impressed!!




Yes we can.

(thanks for making that so easy)

We so seldom get into that discussion.

There are places the military budget could be trimmed.

A military defense is a Constitutional responsibility, an offense is not. If you want to get right down to it, the founders didn't look too highly on the concept of a standing army. Of course, since the military is the biggest welfare program in the country right now, it's not going to go away.

Yeah, and that's just shootings--I'm talking about all crime overall. It's utterly ridiculous.

I live within the Greater Cincinnati Metro area, and it's no picnic here, either--seems like every night there is another shooting, or a beating, or a burglary, or a whatever. Overdoses and shootings are the foundation of the news around here, it seems.

And people who have never lived outside of a large metropolitan area wonder why people say that vast urban areas are a major contributor to the decline of civilization...
