    I think that until some of the genius people in Chicago figure out that the city needs the National Guard to put ALL known gang members behind bars – this is only the beginning of another bloody summer in Chicago…and once again we can make national news.
    My theory: You decide that you want to be a gang member – you loose your rights as a Chicago citizen. Plain and simple. You are locked up.

      And what is the National Guard going to do?
      Will they have the power to use Deadly Force? No!
      Will they have the power of arrest? Maybe!
      What type of weapons will they be allowed to carry beyond what CPD has.
      Will thay have more power to enforce the law than is allow already? No!
      The Fall of the Roman started in Rome. The fall has already started in Illinois.

    whatever!!! john!! da world or my country is bigger then Chicago!! people need to report or snitch on this heartless criminals, people that know about this crime and do not aid in their arrests are just as guilt…

    I bet they solve this one. This didn't happen in englewood where they are trying to exterminate the people so I guess CPD will step up and do some police work.
