The War on the Windy Streets

Residents (and future residents) of Chicago, take note: the Chicago Police Department (former employer to Carl Winslow, I believe) will be operating with an increased presence on the streets this summer. "Operation Safe Summer" will in essence, create a police state in many high-crime neighborhoods. This plan is similar to one tried in Fresno, CA, in the 90's that had one Fresno cop saying "if you're a young black man and you're not in our system yet, there's something wrong." Sounds like a wonderful experience to live in such a 'safe environment'.

Explanations for why Chicago is known as "The Windy City" here.
