    To: Robin. I don't know if you remember or understand politics and government but Obama had majorities in house and senate for first 2 years. He did nothing. He was spending the time apologizing to the Muslim state for American excellence. He then moved on to taking his wife and all her long lost relatives, handlers, friends on worldwide trips at taxpayer expense like the low class daughter of a Daley precinct captain she is. Then he decided to blame white cops for killing those who try to get guns away from cops (Mike brown, the hands up don't shoot fantasy) and then Trayvon who was killed in self defense. Obamas support of these two criminals gave birth to the terrorist BLM movement. That by the way is an Obama accomplishment. He built an organization that calls for cop killing. So you can see Obama is truly a failure and you blaming the congress just proves your ignorance.

Vigil held to support police officers

Hansen and other police wives organized a vigil Sunday outside the Central District police station, 1718 S. State St., that was attended by about 50 people, including Chicago Police Supt. Eddie Johnson, to help turn the tide of disfavor and get more people to support police officers.

    Vigil held to support police officers
    Brigid Hansen, whose husband is a Chicago Police officer, says she's wary of letting her three young kids out of the house wearing anything with a police emblem on it because she fears it could make them a target. "It breaks my heart," Hansen said. "They idolize him. He's their hero."
