Not to take on the guise of a doomsday prophet but we have been reporting on the chronic street staffing shortages of the CPD already this summer as the violence in Chicago has started it’s annual summertime uptick .

As the Democratic National Convention looms exactly 2 months from now, one wonders how all of the added law enforcenment responsibilities that come with running a major political event will be handled without sacrificing the safety of the city already in peril.

Granted The Feds have already set up shop in the south suburbs to coordinate the multiple agencies that will be involved in this event and certainly the state and county police depts across the state could be utilized and in a worse case scenario The National Guard could be called up but we see major elevated safety risks for the city EITHER WAY. And given the over the top ignorant incompetence we are seeing from City Hall on ALL THINGS we harbor serious trepidations on proper guidance and procedures being demonstrated here.

Every thug in Chicago (like everyone else) is gonna know our CPD is going to be major league distracted in the heat of the summer and last thing this city needs is 1968 all over again. But then remember 2020 and we rest our case.
