This might fall into the category of politics but with Chicago being the murder capital of the world and that being a concern to many on here I wanted to tell what I saw on the news tonight. The head of the Fraternal Order Of Police in Chicago has asked the union members to not work overtime during the labor day weekend. This brought about a demonstration where an intersection was shut down and a spokesman accused the police union of not caring about the killings in Chicago. I am guessing that some of these demonstrators are also some of the people who harass the police when they are trying to do their job. An article the other day showed an officer being abused by some of the locals while he was guarding a crime scene that was under investigation. He was being called names and he was being baited to react to other abuse. I believe that he acted in a professional manner and did his job. The number of police officers on duty so far this year has not made much of a difference in the number of killings so far and it is foolish to think that they would make that big of a difference now. The same people who are trying to blame the police for not being able to stop all of the killing are the same ones blame the police when they do their job. This lack of respect and cooperation with the police is the reason why there are so many killings in Chicago now. Until people start taking some of the responsibility for this they will keep paying a heavy toll.
