    Hey, Lew, the police did their job in 1968. They “preserved disorder”, as Mayor Daley said.

    What the nation needed in 1968 was to treat civil disobedience with respect and to remove itself from imperialistic incursions into foreign lands.

    Unfortunately, the lessons of the Vietnam War were lost on wealthy powerful chickenhawks like G.W. Bush & Dick Cheney, so we have had to go through the entire mess again, twice.

    Twice? If the Palestinians and Israelis can’t reach an agreement on Israeli settlements by September 30th according to King Abdulla ll of Jordan on The Daily Show, I only get my news from it and the Colbert Report, we may be fighting on at least 5 fronts. At least 2 more this year.

    Screw the Middle East. Let them all kill each other and then we’ll go in and beat up the winner.

    “It’s 106 miles to Chicago…He’s got a full tank of B.S…half a mag of ammo..he’s dumb and he’s wearing sunglasses.”

    Hit it.

    The Chicago police not only were commended for having “preserved disorder” in 1968; they were also acquitted in their trial a few years later. The chief of the Patrolman’s Association was ecstatic. “I am elated,” he said. “This shows that Lady Justice is not blind.”

    Maybe Jeff Redfern knows who (or what, besides an inveterate contempt for justice) still protects the Chicago police.

    Ps. @ BrianCrook

    Sounds like Willie X. Lin took the advice you gave a few weeks back to read Mrs. Dalloway. Is he one of your students/colleagues?

    … or feed up—-with fat bribes.

    A doctor I knew went to complain to a towing service that his car had been towed illegally. When the garage owner refused to let him have his car back unless he paid up, the doctor made the garage call the Chicago police. A local policeman arrived in two minutes. After listening to the doctor’s complaint, the policeman threw him down the stairs—-breaking his leg.

    The doctor was unable to get a report of the incident and he had to pay to mend his leg as well as retrieve his car.

    Chicago justice, 1968 or 2008. You’d be better off living under the Taliban, if not under Karzai’s corrupt regime (whither Jeff Redfern may be returning).
