Don't you guys know that whistles work!
Just look at the police in the UK (bobbies)....that's what they use. It seems to work well there....

For years the English Bobbies carried whistles instead of guns. Seems like I heard that a few had actually wised up and now carry something a little more threatning.
Did not catch the post above.
What will be funny, is when they hand out the 800 whistles in the park the mothers will give them to there kids. I can hear it now!
To close for missiles, switching to guns.
Well, I needed a good chuckle on the day after Christmas!! Rank stupidity and politicians that are a disgrace to the gene pool anywhere. Other words that come to mind are inane, arcane and assinine.
And to think that a bunch of us were planning to go to Chicago for a week on vacation!
THANKS for opening my eyes to this intolerable idiocy!!

Does the Chief carry one of those whistles instead of a gun?

OK, in light of this, I think each member of the city council (including the chief) needs to take one of these magic whistles, announce to the media that each of them will be taking an evening (9-10 PM ) walk...ALONE... for 1 hour through the city park for 1 week each to prove the effectiveness...and NO adjustments to the police duty roster!!!
Oooooh an epiphany...Any time law makers pass a law, they need to go forth and test it to prove it's effectiveness. Kind of like an inventor. You try it first before you market it.
