The best laid plans of …. never mind.

Dancing on the head of a pin

Sure… come stay in one of our lovely prisons

Another “hate crime” bites the dust

A separate crime, and a bad one

Seriously, not literally.

Jan 2017

No, but we may be picking the wrong case to argue

Isn’t this Rahm Emanuel’s problem?

Throw away the key

Not exactly, but there are some cracks in the wall

Takin’ it from the street

“They still stop, they will frisk, and they will take the gun away…”

“We did it in New York, it worked incredibly well.”

Will 1,000 new cops solve Chicago’s problems?

Jazz Shaw Sep 21, 2016 12:31 PM

“…he can still be a victim of a crime, and he was in this case.”

The police survived, but the shooter has shifted to a more horizontal attitude

This is the new version of the big, RICO mob trials of the seventies
