Gotta love it when the progressive socialists eat themselves.

Not loving the reminder that that all of us are helping finance the purchasing of electric cars for those who want them.
The left lies about everything. Truth is a liberal value, and truth is a conservative value, but it has never been a left-wing value. People on the left say whatever advances their immediate agenda. Power is their moral lodestar; therefore, truth is always subservient to it. - Dennis Prager

Well this would drive up the cost of registration for every gas powered car too. They just can't stop with their insanity.

This is an interesting escalation between the police and Chicago's officials. But it follows the Detroit path. It doesn't matter who is elected, the next administration is as corrupt as the previous one.

Sisters pulled brother off life support and they thought he was dead till he walked in the door.

Budget cuts doesn’t allow John Does to be IDed by finger prints anymore in Chicago.

Had already bought a casket.

I would withhold judgment on this one...sounds like some CYA'ing going on.

The sisters say: "...a nurse told her police identified him through mugshots and not fingerprints because of budget cuts." So taking the sister at her word, a nurse is opining on police procedure...

The hospital says the sisters did identify him as their brother...

and...

Right after noting the Chicago PD saying they are taking the investigation seriously, the article comes up with "sources say" the police only take prints off of people who are arrested or dead (which sounds plausible to me. Given that this comes right after the reference to the CPD, I'm betting that the "sources" were CPD officers off the record.

The hospital is sweating two lawsuits right now, one from the sister and one from the dead guy's family. I doubt the hospital is really responsible for identification, but the CPD will be much harder to sue.

ETA: I'll also bet that before he was taken off life support there was a stack of paperwork for the sisters to sign, which I will also bet included identifying the man as a family member. I can't see the hospital lawyers letting the hospital pull the plug on people without all kinds of legal releases of responsibility.

Patient on doctor ordered walk near hospital arrested after hospital security guard tells police he was attempting to steal IV pole and equipment attached to it.
Not sure if a nurse removed IV as he was transported to jail.

He’s probably suing of course. All on body cams.

Windy City Rehab a HGTV remodeling flipping show has been suspended for one year for applying for new building permits.

Infractions include selling a unit without a CO. Using unlicensed workers, working without a permit, building something different than what is on the plans.

Sounds like someone didn’t pay the right people, the right money.

So I watched the first episode of Windy City Rehab.

The wife and I enjoy these home remodeling shows on HGTV. Our current favorite is Love it or List it.

The one thing that jumped out was the normal residential electrical wiring being in conduit. Wow, no Romex, not even flexible metallic cable, but full conduit in a 2 story detached house.

Chicago must be something. No thank you.

I come from a commercial Constrution back ground. I seldom did a residential project ( favor for friends ). Always used greenfield at the very least. I do no like Romex.

SWAT raid on a home at 5 am nets an unarmed 12 year old with a shattered knee shot in his bed, dropped charges and a lawsuit.

I guess it does happen in other places. So will the war on guns be worse than the war on drugs?

LGBTQQIP2SAA history will be taught in Illinois schools next year. I assume all the old textbooks will have to be thrown out, since they do not include this. Full employment for textbook companies.
