EVANSTON, Ill. -- The first copies of the french satire magazine "Charlie Hebdo" may arrive in Evanston as early as Friday.
Evanston police are stepping up patrols to prepare for anything that might develop.
The Chicago Main Newsstand is capitalizing on the new awareness of the magazine's biting and controversial political humor.
Islamist terrorists were so offended by that humor they stormed the magazine's offices in Paris, and murdered 12 people.
Evanston police don't want that to happen here, so they're making preemptive patrols.
The additional police presence won't cost more for taxpayers.
Police leaders say officers already on patrol will simply make extra visits to the newsstand.
