Editor’s note: If Chicago wasn’t a “Second Amendment Free Zone” this sort of nonsense would not be necessary.
“Safe Passage” is a feel-good slogan dreamed up by Chicago Police Chief Garry McCarthy and the mayor Rahm Emanuel to foster a sense of safety where there is none.
They have dragged city employees off their jobs and forced them to man positions along designated “safe passage” routes – everyone from firefighters to sanitation workers.
Yes, the garbage men and firemen are acting as cops.
The Chicago Public Schools have also hired hundreds of people (screened for drugs and criminal histories, we’re sure!) to watch the routes.
