Sure sounds a helluva lot better and better each passing moment, as the Obama Romper Room Marxist Kindergarten class is failing all subjects with flying colors, while soaked up to it's neck in corruption and crude oil.
So back to Daley taking more freedoms away because a bunch of lowlife scum were arrested for shooting at each others, not beach goer's but lowlife gangbanging scum. So the answer from a liberal is to 'choke off the liberty of law abiding citizens thanks to 1% of the population to try and catch the one percenter's in the act when they'll just go where the camera's aren't pointing just as they do in the city.From The Chicago Tribune:
Since last week's spate of violence along the lakefront at North Avenue, Chicago police have installed security cameras and started random checks of bags and coolers for alcohol as people walk into the beach area, city officials said Wednesday.
Ald. Vi Daley, 43rd, said the random checks were started after several arrests and a shooting between Fullerton and North avenues.
Chicago police officials said the searches target illegal drinking on the beach — the cause of several recent incidents in which beachgoers and police were injured.
Daley said there is also concern about a violent element coming to the beach. She did not think the checks would need to remain in place permanently, noting they could make people uncomfortable.
But she also said police were responding to "intimidating'' groups who wreck the experience for others.
"People should be able to enjoy the beach,'' she said. "During the day I don't think we really have a problem. Everything happens as it gets darker. The climate changes a little bit.'' read more....North Avenue Beach, Chicago Illinois..
They only help after a crime, they never stop them.
And would he allow people like myself to go armed, these gangbangers would have had to duck shots coming from the 'good guys' until the cops arrived with a meatwagon if me and my buddies were on that beach that day, and I've been here a 1000 times since high school.
They were each paid a $100 and has pictures of he, his friend Dewey along with Belushi and Akroyd at a luncheon they had for all the extras that day, along with the uncashed check he has hanging in his home office, the kids freaked on it )
Back to the North avenue and Oak street beaches.....
Yet the Oak street spot was more expensive counting parking, plus, it's actually 'concrete' which isn't too comfortable but that didn't bother all the people from hanging there every weekend in the summer months. At least it was when I was going down there with my buddies every weekend in the late 80's.
A time when you could bring beer, liquor, food, weed, whatever the hell you wanted to, until the gangbanging Latino's and Brutha's along with NeoScum white trash as well took over the city and turned into the "mexican border" for all intents and purposes with the influx of literally hundreds of thousands of illegals everywhere you turn. Mexican, Russian, Somalian, Ethiopian, Polish, Italian, although most of the Eastern Europeans got here legally since the swim is a little far for them.
It's a 200 meter breast stroke for the Illegal Olympic team which no longer exists since all the runners, jumpers and swimmers are already here sucking off the "pipe" of American generosity.
Allow people to exercise their 2nd amendment rights and all of a sudden Chicago's finest have 100,000 deputies ready to take these losers on when needed. But no, he'd rather take the weapons away from law abiding people to turn them all into easy targets and pushovers for armed scum.
