Two state representatives called on Gov. Pat Quinn Sunday to deploy the Illinois National Guard to safeguard Chicago's streets.
Chicago Democrats John Fritchey and LaShawn Ford said they want Quinn, Mayor Richard Daley and Chicago Police Supt. Jody Weis to allow guardsmen to patrol streets and help quell violence.
So far this year, 113 people have been killed across Chicago, the same number of U.S. troops killed in Iraq and Afghanistan combined in the same period, Fritchey said.

I hold the theory that a general break down in adequate policing and an increase in lawlessness may well be intentional...

Sounds like gang war activity to me, Americas very own terrorists, street gangs, they terrorize cities across America and when they go to war with each other the blood flows freely.

This has nothing to do with gun laws, organized crime, or corrupt politicians. This is all about how the city of Chicago is set up.
Now they're going to push it just a little further — deploy the Guard in Chicago, there will be a major incident (a "showcase" incident), and then the Guard will be on patrol in Chicago permanently, mainly to bust down doors and confiscate legally-owned weapons.
What cha wanna bet?
