    Chicago Judicial Systems needs to lock them up and throws away the key!
    Spectators are just as VILE!
    They are capable of anything! Drug Dealing!Child abuse! elder abuse! Robbery! Murder!
    I look at my 2 beautiful loving intelligent adopted Pit Bulls. Both young females overbred and thrown out, found emaciated and half dead.
    Chicago has become a cesspool of monsters like these!
    My tourism dollars will skip Chicago my next trip. I did not appreciate being called names by your
    Street people and dope heads loitering. They made your beautiful fine city Ugly!
    I also am very vocal, live off major highway have a RV and stay at RV parks nationwide and will not be recommending touring this ghetto city till it is CLEANED UP!
    My sympathies to Mayor Rohm Emanuel you inherited a mess!
