  1. I have always respected your humor, laugh, and the seriousness with the news. I believe you are very honest, so this is why I am sending an E-Mail for your Honest opinion.

    First, she (Mayor of Chicago) tells the Protesters to report the Police if they have a complaint.
    She should have told the Protesters to protest but do not throw or provoke the Police Officers, because the Police are doing their job.
    Today we have three Police Officers, doing their job and they get injured.

    Now the Mayor is saying that it is a very dangerous job and they are protecting the people of Chicago. Wish the Mayor of Chicago would support the Police Officers and not the PROTESTERS.
