  1. The city would save money by issuing residents tazers and kevlar vests instead of addding police officers to sit around and wait for a call. Until our police start being proactive again it will only get worse. Hope the victim is OK.

  2. Of course he headed east. Gotta get back on that red line, right?

  3. Running for the El. Video cameras in all stations must be installed.
