And coming from... *drumrolls* Rahm Emmanuel, of course.

Emanuel wants big fine increases for G8 protesters

Mayor Rahm Emanuel wants to raise fines for resisting police as the city gears up for anticipated protests that will come with the G8 and NATO summits to be held in Chicago next May.

Protesters found guilty of resisting a police officer or aiding escape would have to pay a maximum fine ranging from $200 to $1,000. Currently, the range is $25 to $500.

And resisting a police officer, in most case, (and especially in Chicago with crooked cops) means talking back.

Enjoy your freeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeedoms.

Imagine if you had to pay for the news that you regurgitate on this site'd be broke yourself.

On topic:

Yes, someone that holds the law above public opinion is a tool of the dullest type...but like your threads, they aren't going away anytime soon, so the opportunity to throw rhetoric out there will continue on.

Hiking up rates to discourage people from protesting?

Does this idiot not realize this sort of stuff is what people at the G20 protests protest?

Good job Rahm, you just guaranteed a higher protest rate as well as a higher rate of people resisting arrest. Doing the opposite of your original goal.

Laugh now, one day the boomerang will come back and hit you. Karma is a... very friendly entity if your nice to her

That is rather alarming.
I guess their swindles and scams are unravelling.
So, they come up with a new scam...Rip Off The Dissent.
How unimaginary and droll.
Well I guess if the only cool thing left in Chicago is "Nuts on Clark," thats what happens.
They should really be thinking about all that water potential they have there.
As well as, a complete revitalization of the Music Scene.
