…not a good idea.
The young men out on those streets are fearless and
generally are about as well armed as the Guard would be. Unemployment and idle
minds make a bad mix with military occupation.
We touched on some of this on yesterdays show (HERE IS THE LINK). Honestly, I can understand the frustration of the people in Chicago, children being killed; people feel unsafe and are unsafe. However; there is a County Sheriffs Department and a very professional State Police in Illinois that could be utilized to increase patrols and supplement the Chicago Police Department. Overall there needs to be change in the community and it needs to start at the homes and from the faith community and other community groups that need to step up to be present in the streets to be another set of eyes and a deterrent to crime. The military is not the answer. Just saying…
