  • I Told You So

    Just a week or 2 ago or so I commented on a man who went swimming after hours an drown. I stated in that comment that Chicago has no problem taking your money at Navy Pier and all the other amenities but when it comes to enforcement on the lake
    front they rely on signs to disclaim their responsibilities.
    The police are now getting hurt needlessly & are out numbered having to perform crowd control when its 10-20 cops aganist 500 people. Totally outrageous.
    The Mayor needs to be held accountable.
    Shame on Chief McCarthy too for trying to deflect the issue at hand when his own people are getting hurt while he sais we should focus on just the shooting.
    McCarthy is out of a job as soon as Emmanuel
    loses his job.
