    'giving them to the alderman and the police.'

    and what do we do when the police in 24 continue to ignore calls for help with specific incidents? I could produce photographic evidence of drug transactions if I thought 24 would give a hoot, but they don't even respond to the calls let alone follow up to ask questions.

  • The police ignore calls? Wow, amazing!! It's called job security... where else can you go from being an underpaid Target team member to a City of Chicago gun-toting, power abusing cop?? Who would want the drug game to end? Not the law enforcement sector for darn sure.
