Speaking of Chicago...
Officer resigns after video shows him not stepping in when woman in Puerto Rico shirt is harassed
CHICAGO -- A police officer has resigned amid an investigation into his response to a woman who said she was being harassed in a Chicago forest preserve for wearing a shirt with the Puerto Rican flag. Footage of the incident, captured on Facebook Live last month, has gone viral, and it even drew the attention of Puerto Rico's governor.

The Forest Preserves of Cook County announced on Twitter that Officer Patrick Connor resigned late Wednesday. Records show he had been with the force since 2006.
Then Skank Of America could start in...

Cook County Forest Preserve cops... we called them "tree pigs" in high school. The entire police force is a patronage jobs racket. Incompetent bumbling fucknuts who were somebody's somebody.

Aftermath:
Protesters pray, chant outside Wrigley after anti-violence march briefly shuts down Lake Shore Drive
Chicago Tribune
... The protest was not large in size, with only a couple of hundred protesters marching and chanting in the streets. But it caused a ripple of traffic disruptions that clogged Lakeview streets for several hours. ...

Rahm is such a spineless coward to allow less than 150 people to shut down LSD and other north side streets for hours without a permit because he's afraid to enforce the law against black people before a tight election.

And what the fuck do these protesters expect Cubs fans to do about the violence in their neighborhoods? These fucking morons refuse to cooperate with police, elect politicians running on a platform to weaken the rule of law and who coddle gangs, then bitch and moan about the out of control crime in their neighborhoods. As far as I can tell they are getting the neighborhood crime they demand.

OTOH, nowhere near as many as that previous protest that blocked streets on the South Side, and no Pfleger. I see a connection between those two items.

Also and no bloodbath, despite the hype about interfering with the baseball game and shutting down Lollapalooza.

By Chicago standards that's just an extra tough traffic jam on LSD.

Not very nice, but basically SOS.

More about the protest fizzle from Second City Cop (a cop's blog)

Pathetic Protest
...

They couldn't even get two buses filled, and then they had to delay the march while they "waited" for other buses caught in traffic - buses that never materialized.

Including everyone who took public transportation in, the media estimated the crowd at "a couple of hundred." Our people (closer to the action) said bosses made the official count at 150, and that was being generous.

Where do you think I copied and pasted it from?

Hard to believe that Cub fans didn't put a stop to the violence on the south and west sides.

Oh and note 2 mass shootings on this weekends list that somehow don't get the usual suspects in a tizzy. They only count when white people are the perps or victims.

5 mass shootings apparently (but only 2 deaths among them. Apparently the shooters don't have very good aim.)

I don't understand any of these. Just gang violence?

Understand that in this context "gang" means profitable criminal enterprises, and "inner city youth" perpetrators are for the most past in effect the oppressed proletariat of those enterprises.

Victims are each other, but also a lot of collateral damage.

Neighborhood gangs with beefs against other neighborhood gangs. Usually because of stupid shit like disses on social media or a rap song. Buy gangster rap music and your money goes to these scum.

You have to let them repeat, because jailing them is racist.
