Mike Zumwalt replied to DerferMark's discussion Don’t count on Police for even the smallest token of justice, a Traffic Ticket!
"The Chicago police are not underfunded their budget is around $1.7 billion a year and as far as I know all 12,000 officers are on 7 days a week 12 hour shifts so the Sgt was lying the problem is they are sitting at the lakefront, downtown river…"

"I'm grateful that I only needed my full cold weather gear twice. Previous winters I'd wear it for weeks at a time.  Did not need to put plastic bags over my feet in my shoes to keep the sub-zero wind out."
