    Rahm Emanuel wasn't in on it...sure. Anyway, I expect this will start happening with more frequency in other parts of the country if citizens do not protest it.

    Armed troops in the streets of American cities. The first steps in the "Big Brother" takeover. They used the pretense of guarding government buildings. Do the buildings need more guarding now than they did last month? Or last year? To me this looks like the rehearsal for the 1st step in a dictator takeover. Get your SHTF gear ready as it may be getting here quicker than we thought.

    The Federal Protective Service provides guards for government buildings. If you are familiar with the well-organized riots that have happened at past NATO G8 summits, you will know that failure to step up security at government buildings would have been negligence of the worst sort.

    Security matters for the convention center itself have been well-discussed with the Mayor, since that is a major production. The fact that some outlying government buildings got beefed-up security was such an incredibly small part of this huge event that there was no reason to involve the city. If protestors stay outside, they won't have a problem.

    The article stated that the Mayor was not involved, and that the head of Chicago’s NATO Host Committee was completely blindsided. Also the event doesn't take place for another 2 1/2 weeks.

    You'd think NATO would get a clue if these riots keep happening.

    CPD is short at least 2,000 officers. Rahm is trying to pretend they still exist so he can keep the slush fund full.

    Ever since the Battle of Seattle no one wants to be the next Norm Stamper.

    Are we supposed to live our lives according to the dictates of anarchists?
