Last
month
Chicago named its first “public enemy number one” since Al
Capone during the Prohibition Era. Even though Chicago named a
Mexican drug lord this time, its political leaders are more
interested in keeping drugs illegals and blaming guns than
wondering ;how the drug war might fuel violence or
contribute to an atmosphere of terror.
From
Courthouse News:
Chicago police terrorized six children in the wrong
apartment, demanding at gunpoint that an 11-month-old show his
hands, and telling one child, “This is what happens when your
grandma sells crack,” the family claims in court.

Lead plaintiffs Charlene and Samuel Holly sued Chicago, police
Officer Patrick Kinney and eight John Does in Federal Court, on
their own behalves and for their children and children.

The six children were 11 months to 13 years old at the time.
Plaintiffs Connie and Michelle Robinson are Charlene Holly’s
daughters.
