So far, so good

Another week of protests have come to an end. Streets have been closed, business and shopping and commuting have been disrupted, but blessedly, there have few arrests, and no violent police/demonstrator clashes.

I'm proud of the way Chicago is working through this. Citizens are in pain and they are determined to make themselves heard. The CPD has been respectful of everyone's First Amendment rights, and the demonstrators have given the police no reason to arrest them.

But I'm so sorry it's happening. The tension is palpable.

  1. It must be so unnerving to have the "sense" of the city you love change so drastically.

Sorry about adding Comment Moderation, folks. But look at the bright side, at least I've gotten rid of word verification!
