Daley requests bodyguard detail after leaving office -
Un-frikking-believable. I almost admire Daley; he has a set on him, made of brass, and the size of Texas.Bodyguard brouhaha?
Sneed has learned Mayor Daley is requesting a retinue of at least three around the clock Chicago Police bodyguards from his mayoral security detail to accompany him into the private sector!
Sneed also hears whispers Mayor Daley, who retires May 16, wants two vehicles at his disposal; one for himself and one for his wife, Maggie.
The request for personal security by Mayor Daley, concerned about serious safety threats, resulted in the Chicago Police Department contacting the Secret Service to determine whether such security was necessary, a top source said.
The upshot: It was determined Mayor Daley needed the security for a period of time, the source added.
What has yet to be determined is how long that period of time would be.
A second Sneed source claims Mayor Daley initially asked for five bodyguards, but that may have included a number needed for constant surveillance.
A history note: Although Mayor Jane Byrne, who lost her re-election bid to Harold Washington, did not leave office accompanied by a bodyguard detail, Sneed is told Mayor Eugene Sawyer who occupied the office for a short period of time was given a bodyguard. (Mayor Washington died in office.)
The buckshot: In a time of economic downturn, such surveillance is gonna cost the city big bucks, and may cause a brouhaha.
Hey, he's just a regular citizen now! If he wants protection, he can join us!

Elitist attitude, Daley : what applies to you doesn't apply to me..... I'm special and follow different rules.
With no guns in Chicago, and so no crimes or victims, I'm not sure what he's worried about. Let him live like any other "citizen" there.

Chief Justice John Roberts : "I don't see how you can read Heller and not take away from it the notion that the Second Amendment...was extremely important to the framers in their view of what liberty meant."
Why is he worried? I'm sure the "gun-free" city of Chicago is the safest place in the United States. ***snicker*** and just outright guffaw.
He doesn't need security, he needs a lobotomy.

When he's out of office, let him live by/with the laws he made while in office. If it was good enough for Joe the plumber it should be good enough for Dick the , well you can fill in your own word.
The only difference is Daley has the wherewithal to move anywhere he chooses, unlike many of his subjects. He can move to a free state and OC or CC, or get his own permit and/or hire his own security. I hope his request is denied. Guy will probably have a stroke the first time he steps outside without his human shield.
