God damm what the hell is going on in Chicago? That is almost as bad as the Narcs down here in Atlanta who broke into a 90 year old womens house with a no knock warrent because they thoght she was running a trap house, She shot at what she thought was some thieves and the cops shot and killed her. The police are still up to there same old tricks.
