Uptown Update notes a new law to go into effect that came about as a result of the death of Officer Thomas Wortham last year. It was recently signed into law by Gov. Pat Quinn on August 2nd.
In fact, it seems similar to another law that was signed into effect at Chatham's Cole Park last year by Gov. Quinn during the course of last year's election.
Well we should ask the same question as the Uptown blog:
Since so many of the gangbangers are convicted felons, do you think it will have any effect on their behavior? Or at least get them off our streets for longer periods of time?What do you think?
