You people are going to hate Rahm's cameras, not about public safety but raising revenue.

Again you're wrong.

Eagle Signal was building analog systems that could do that in the fifties & sixties.

I worked in their R & D lab and am well acquainted with what those systems could do.

Rahm really knows his Israeli tank brakes, but when it comes to running a major American city, he blows.

To do this right, Rham should mandate every male over the age of 15, living in Chicago, must wear a helmet cam.

I love Rahm, because he is going to stick it to the Unions. It will be so slick they won't even notice. He may be a crook, but he is our crook! I could vote for Rahm, not for President, but Governor, or Mayor for life. In fact our old Precinct captain is still our friend, and he asks us every election if we want to go vote, He says he is kidding, but I bet he would let us vote.

Highest gun crime murder rate in the Nation and this idiot and his incompetent drunk police chief Gary McCarthy are worried about red light cameras

Yesterday the Chicago Police Chief said things are getting better. There were 24 shootings, and 4 dead over the week-end. 400 to 600 little jungle animals formed mobs up, and down the Magnificent Mile attacking people. There goes the tourist trade. Who wants to pay the big money to come to Chicago to be harrassed, and frightened off. And don't forget the law abiding cannot protect themselves with a gun, and the cops are all busy protecting politicians.
