Working downtown in Chicago on the 26th 27th, I noticed something strange so I snapped a pic on my phone. Many Chicago cops in the downtown area
driving regular squad cars were dressed in olive drab military style clothing and wearing fully loaded tactical vests. No exercises happening that I
noticed, just regular beat cops. I snuck one pic of a pair of the cops getting back into their cruiser after getting lunch. Why fully loaded
tactical vests and the military garments? I don't know how to post a pic so If someone can share how to I will or if anyone has any info on local
events or exercises. I'm not worried, just found it interesting.
