    A bankrupt City, County, State cannot afford the lock up. $80,000 x 7000"criminals is more,than we can afford.

    So,what do we get? We get grandstanding to make it look like something is happening when it is not.

    We need efficiency audits in every department to get the waste/inefficiency under control. We need forensic audits to uncover the false reports/fraud.

    That is where/when things will get better. The internet has created a chasm where chicago government has not kept up with the real world, Government is a slow slig wiggling down the street while business zooms right by. (Excepting neighborhoods,where the rich live. They get first class carte blanch amenities onkymthe super rich know exist!)

    There are still teachers around who don't use computers! Same for all other city department personel.

    Who on this post think that digital divide is part of the reason why we get such lousey service?

    You nailed it about the forensic auditing> The alderman get health insurance that city employees, especially retirees are denied.
