7 Comments on Chicago: Safe Passage program expands to 14 more schools

  1. How the f*ck can Rahm be proud of that??? Chicago is a blood drenched murder fest that gets worse each year under Democrat administration and none of its citizens even seem to care.

  2. The elephant in the room is the violence that permeates that city. That is the problem they refuse to address.

  3. “program involves 1,400 Safe Passage personnel trained by the CPS”
    That sounds like trouble. More involvement for children with the CPS. Mission creep comes to mind. Hope those 1,400 are Honorable.

  4. How about they just go full force to clean up the crime and murders? What a sad statement that we have to to provide “safe psssage” for kids to get to the schools

    Those kids also need safe passage in the schools and relief from the poor teachers protected by the CTU

    The democrats have turned CHICAGO into one of those shitholes we heard about. Shame on you u
