  1. So, let's see:
    Speed traps around schools and parks, created "supposedly" to protect the "kids", even though the data doesn't support this, and "speed bumps" would be much more effective.
    Now, if you can't pay for these fines, they'll take it out of your tax returns. Oh, let's not forget about the "boots".

    Black Community:

    The Mayor seems to be on a roll to get as much money out of you as possible. However, what most of you are forgetting is that he is getting the support by BLACK ELECTED OFFICIALS, whether Alderman or State Legislatures.

    And don't give me this "other races of politicians are supporting him, too" B.S. They, at least, support their core constituents on core issues. Do the Black Politicians support their core constituents? NO! They support the "Democratic Machine" like the good little "Sambos" that they are! Yea, I said it... SAMBOS!! "Yesum, Massa Emanu-el, how can I helps yu scruw ovu mys people sum mo?"

    Bravo to Alderman Sawyer for standing against this nonsense!
    It seems the Ward Remap fiasco has made him tough.
    He knows that he has to support the community, because the other politicians he was trying to impress don't care about him.

    Wake up, folks.
    It's going to get worse.
    Elections are this year.
    Vote who you can out of office!
