    Second City Cop, the Chicago PD is speculating about the department adminsitration's intent:

    Riot Preparations?

    (scroll down to the topic)

    I am long retired and out of the loop but there seems to be a lot of speculation nation wide. This is the first I have seen where a major department leadership is looking at maybe preparing.

    How sick is it that I'd almost welcome the riots, just so the world can see once and for all what a farce this President's term has been, and all those who got him elected?

    Stay classy there, Obama voters.

    It's sick, but since we live in a sick world, I guess I'd say it's normal...

    Someone will riot and loot if the O wins or loses.

    If Romney wins by a close margin, then yes, there will be riots in the usual areas. Hell, these places riot after a sports team wins or loses so a riot over something bigger wouldn't surprise me.

    If the uneducable will willingly riot because a sports team wins a trophy, they'll riot because of their emotional and 'tribal' investiture.

    And, DC, Atlanta, Birmingham, Houston, LA, New Orleans, Philly, Baltimore..........it's actually a long list of possibilities, given the entitlement and "you owe me" mentality in these cities and many more.

    Makes me glad I'm on the conservative side of the mountain; I don't think anything will start here because there just aren't enough of the right people. If it does, there are plenty of that right kind of people to put a stop to it.

    Riots look bad for Democrats.

    Then again we in the south have a different take on that attitude:

    With people like Debbie Wasserman Schultz, James Carville, Maxine Waters, Antonio Villar[aigosa], Joe Biden, et. al., do you really think they care about their actual public image?

    In all seriousness, this will present a major issue for large city agencies already cash strapped. Expected overtime, equipment damage, officers hurt and off the road. Major riots are costly and in an economy that is still fragile, it will be painful.

    Their political co-conspirators and masters in Congress will simply borrow more money from the Red Chinese to pay for it, all in the name of urban renewal.

    Someone should really tell the potential looters the negative ramifications on the economy if they pursue that course of action. I'd bet they never looked at it that way, but saw themselves just "blowing off a little steam" and "taking what they deserve"

    The uneducated can't grasp the simple idea of actions have consequences. They'll never comprehend macroeconomic theory.
