    Toss this unusual or cruel punishment law out! Crucify them—but not unto death, just let them hang there for about five or six days then go to prison. If they are there for five or ten years hang them on a cross for a few more days before their release—just as a reminder of what it was like to be hanging on a cross.

    When I moved to Chicago in 1957, it was beautiful and safe. As a student, I went everywhere in town, often alone, at any hour, on public transportation.
    What happened to change a great city so drastically?

      Short answer: gangs and abject poverty.
      Hyperbole isn't helpful. Chicago's problems started many years before the current POTUS took office. It's popular to use him as any excuse, though.

      Gangs and poverty. That existed before Obama was elected.

      Joey Isotta-Fraschini: You of all people. I spent 35 years living just north of Chicago. I'll tell you what pal. Chicago has been crime and gang ridden for over 93 years. Beautiful and safe? You must of lived in Lake Forest or Zion and didn't even know the worlds going around.

    Not possible, there are laws in Chicago that prevent this.

    I lived in that area in the early to mud 80's and that's when the neighborhood went to hell. It's been this way for decades the only difference being the huge increase in guns but the violence was always there. It's like hell in that neighborhood. It's just become a way of life for them and they don't know anything else. Sad.

    Banning assault weapons, high capacity magazines and going for deeper background checks. Too much to ask of our worthless law makers.

      Banning psychiatrists, big pharma and special would provide better results.
