A Day in the Life of a Modern Day Beach Umbrella Merchant and Rahm Emanuel's First Big Lie as Mayor of Chicago

Janet Tavakoli reports on a beach merchant having to deal with LBJ's great grandkids:
I pointed out that our officials have been lying to the public about crime. On June 23, NBC televised a segment on how 911 calls on Memorial Day noted gang violence on Chicago's trendy beaches and the lack of adequate police presence for crowd control.

For example, a 911 caller implored for more police protection. He was selling chairs and umbrellas on the beach that day when he was confronted by thugs: "We have a couple of gentlemen, well, actually a few people, threatening to shoot us, threatening to whoop our ass. They're unhooking our equipment." Calls like belied the story told by Mayor Rahm Emanuel and Chicago Police Superintendent Garry McCarthy that the beach was closed due to the heat.

  1. Chicago police officers are saying off the record that the actvities of LBJ's grandchildren are a lot worse than what has been reported and that a lot is not being reported at all. Personally I'm shocked. Corruption in Chicago? Who knew?
