      I was there last month, my daughter is a patient at Lurie Children's Hospital so I know the area extremely well, even lived there for a time. We spent a couple of days there in July and it was already rough. We stayed at the EMC2, a Marriott Autograph property on Ontario and St Clair, one block east of Michigan. In one of the videos I saw, a looter tried to run over a cop on Michigan and Ontario, you can see the Orvis awning in the video. The Chicago PD was not out in force but the riff raff was. I am a Mod on another forum and I said there Chicago would soon be Detroit, it happened sooner than I thought.

      Here is the video:

      With what's going up there in Chicago....they need true "crowd control devices".

      Wouldn't take long to disperse that pack of liberal thugs.

        Everyone at my hotel in River North called off today because CTA was shut down this morning. When I turned on the news this morning, I told my wife this is not the same city we moved to 9 years ago. Despite what people think, Chicago is a great city. Not anymore. It has turned into a shiithole. I am not sure how much longer I can put up with this nonsense. The first riots a brick was thrown through my hotel's window. No damage from last night and we are under a tornado watch tonight, so hopefully the looters will not be out. But the mayor needs to actually do something, she is freaking worthless.

          I went there Saturday evening to read. Wanted some alone time after dealing with my father’s death recently. Cops were everywhere and a fence was going up.

          just insane.

                  Sorry to hear of your loss,buddy .....all this going on on around you while dealing with that isn't a healthy thing. Hopefully someone up there grows a sack or you move somewhere more sane....hang in there.

                      you crack me up! I will go to Windy City Gyro at Broadway and irving park...and THEN hit the blue line!

                      my wife and I were talking about it, and she asked me where I wanted to move. I said big no back to Florida...someone mentioned Austin...not sure i could be around UT fans...so i am not sure where I would want to move. i have a condo with an amazing view of the Waveland golf course and the lake....it is a million dollar view. i would hate to give that up..BUT....

                      Hope you are well my friend.

                        I hope your daughter is doing better. Laurie is an amazing hospital. That area used to be amazing. Now, you just never know what will happen. I rarely ever go to that area anymore...if my wife and I go out to dinner, we will go to Andersonville.

                          I can't imagine feeling that way(conflicted) about a place where I owned a business and called home. I truly hope things turn around up there for you and others that have tried to make their American dream reality.....it really sucks to see it get soiled by such BS...

                            Found a cool attachment for the ThrowFlame.....a flamethrower drone!:yes:
                            Bring on those rioting bastids....run around a corner to hide if they want, I'll just chase em down and cook their arses from above!


                            And then, just for fun.....a Flying Chainsaw Drone! No friggin liberal will be safe when I get a fleet of these toys hovering over a pack of wild protesters! Perhaps use this one first, and the FlameThrower Drone to burn the protester parts & pieces.:bananaburn:

                            Tell me they wouldn't scatter with several of these things bearing down on them.:rotfl::rotfl:

                                Even so, this is all Trump’s fault. You do know that. He has been giving codes messages to the police across the country that encourage themas they fight crime. And that causes crime as well as looting.

                                Ag least, that’s what the news says.
