Seems like a possibility, considering the members of the 1968 Democratic Convention riot police officers are coming together to celebrate their duties.

Since this is the Skunk Works board, something stinks...and it might be CPD planning another big riot against its citizenry!



The violent clashes between police and protesters during the 1968 Democratic National Convention aren't typically considered proud moments in Chicago history.

But some members of the Fraternal Order of Police want to change that. On June 26, the Chicago police union will hold a "Chicago Riot Cops Reunion" at its hall to set straight "what really happened," according to the reunion's Web site.

"The only thing that stood between Marxist street thugs and public order was a thin blue line of dedicated, tough Chicago police officers," the Web site says. "Chicago police officers who participated in the riots continue to endure unending criticism -- all of which is unwarranted, inaccurate and wrong."

Former Police Supt. Philip Cline is scheduled to be a keynote speaker.

Their members' memories of what happened during the convention are quite different, of course. They call it "one of the largest mass beatings in Chicago history."

The protesters were Marxist street thugs?

Wow... Just wow...

This is just a way for the department to excuse their actions to change history to cast themselves into a new light.

They can have all the self-feel good powwows they want but they will never be able to delete all the video evidence there is that shows the truth of their actions.

The public wanted to march, the police, acting on orders of the PTB, wouldn't let them, but the public wouldn't have it and then the orders were unleashed for the police to start walloping on the public.

That is the truth, and the Chicago police will never escape that.

Not now, not ever.

It seems that all the jackboots around the country are trying to revise history. We as a country lost our rights to amass and peacefully protest in 1968. Denver police just last year"got up early to beat the crowds". Peaceful protesters that had strayed out of designated"free speech zones" got their heads cracked.
I don't know where the idea that Order must be maintained to the detriment of Constitutional rights originates from.
