Chicago cops, the FBI, Homeland Security, Secret Service and a large number of unnamed others have established a high-tech secret command center to surveil people exercising their First Amendment right in Chicago as the NATO war council unfolds this weekend.
The Associated Press seems to be anticipating another police riot like the one in Chicago during the 1968 Democrat convention. During that police instigated riot, Mayor Richard Daley’s police beat up journalists, including Mike Wallace and Dan Rather.
Chicago’s current mayor, former Obama chief of staff Rahm Emanuel, has not so far attacked journalists, although his cops are inclined to handcuff them for covering the news.
