CPS to provide safe routes to school

This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.

The Chicago Public Schools are making plans to provide safe routes to school, when dozens of schools are closed this summer.

Parents say thousands of kids will have to travel through hostile gang territory to their new schools.

So CPS is working with the Chicago Police Department to extend the school system’s “Safe Passage” program.

Extra security will be provided on student travel routes.

Once the plan is in place, the school board will start meeting with parents to design a travel route from each affected home.

    Question , Is this America?
    I
    Are we not allowed to live and travel where we want.
    And if gangs are so powerful, why are we not targeting those areas in question and
    arresting those individuals who would block our rights?

    If the police know where the gang Bangers are, why are they arranging safe passage around it?
    If you going to started messing with the constitution, why don’t you change the part that lets these gangbangers hang out and sell dope and ho’s?
