anyway, good to see they are finally doing something about gun crime. maybe when they get the guard in place they might feeling get sense and start disarming the public.
The Department of Defense will be holding more urban warfare training exercises at the former Tinley Park Mental Health Center in the next two weeks, officials confirmed. The first exercise will begin on Monday, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., followed by another exercise from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on July 17. These exercises will not involve helicopters, according to village Emergency Management Agency Director Pat Carr. On July 23 and July 24, the military will hold exercises from 6 p.m. to 11 p.m., which will involve the use of helicopters, Carr said.

I say that there should be stricter punishments for repeat offenders of certain crimes. Perhaps even make, say the business districts, like school zones in the way that the punishments are more severe. I believe that would quell a little of the violence...
It's only going to get worse as it gets deeper into summer here in the Northern Hemisphere. And it seems as though it's getting worse every year. Drastic measures need to be taken in one area or another.

Having said that, the people aren't even the problem in Chicago. Just ONE person. Mayor Rahmbo. Chicago wasn't an open war zone with a dozen to two dozen bodies a weekend, damn near every weekend like it was a local sport before he took office.
Yes it was, these problems have existed long before Rahm...it's just silly to attempt to use a long standing issue to blame one person who has only been there a couple years.
To understand the issues in Chicago, you would have to know the history of the city, specifically the south side. It's just sad that people simplify it like you do just so you can take a shot at a politician you don't like.
