“Arm Yourselves Citizens,” says Cop to people of Chicago.

“Arm yourselves citizens. You are about to become the most unusual social experiment in history.” (1)
Such is the advice the owner of police blog “Second City Cop” gives to the residents of Rahm Emanuel’s crime ridden city of Chicago. Months after inheriting a demoralized and shrinking police force from outgoing mayor Richard Daley, Rahm Emanuel has charged newly appointed Police Superintendent Garry McCarthy with slashing $190 million from the Department budget.
Yet during last year’s campaign, Emanuel promised voters he would, “…put 1000 more officers on the beat and erase a more than $635 million city of Chicago budget shortfall without cutting police, raising taxes or using one-time revenues.” (2)
How does he intend to perform these feats of financial legerdemain?...............
