Chicago Pol Suggests Using Drones to Protect Kids on the Way to School


The question of how much difference there is between Chicago and Afghanistan has just been answered. There are 35,000 Taliban fighters in Afghanistan and 70,000 gang members in Chicago, who are responsible for most of the gun violence in the city.

It’s obvious. Either we pull out of Chicago, like we pulled out of Afghanistan or we start bombing Chicago.

A Chicago politician is helping show us the way to heal his troubled city. With drones.

If a Chicago alderman has his way, the city could someday see drones buzzing through the skies as part of an effort to keep students safe as they walk to school.

“We could use the help.!” Ald. George Cardenas (12th) tweeted, along with an article from The Telegraph outlining ways the remote-controlled, unmanned aerial vehicles — commonly known as drones — have been used outside of military actions.  “Why not use drones in safe passage.??”

During a follow-up phone interview, Cardenas said “there is no doubt technology is migrating from military use. … It’s going to take time to find those uses in an urban environment. It is, however, the future and I think people will want to take that leap. I think eventually we’re going to have to look at this technology.”

“Did 12th Ward Alderman @georgeacardenas just advocate that Military Drones be used on CPS safe passage routes?” tweeted Martin Ritter, a member of the Local School Council at Whitney Young High School and a Chicago Teachers Union organizer. Ritter later tweeted, “Flying tanks are not the answer.”

We won’t know until we try. If flying tanks don’t work, what about flying submarines or flying aircraft carriers. Something out there has to have enough firepower to fix Chicago.

    hmmm, …how many drones does he think it will take….And who would pay for them? and who would operate them? and who would determine which gang members would be taken out?

      It would be a projection of soft power. Every bean bag round would include a USB flash drive with popular rap music. The gladiator nets break down into fashionable accessories. The mace round would leave you with a captivating scent. Punish and reward the LibProg way.

    Problem is the drone can’t take out a gangsta until he takes out a school kid, otherwise it would be …. racial profiling.

    Isn’t that funny? Dem pols are adamantly opposed to stopping illegals aka drug gangs from crossing our border on their way to Chicago streets even promoting a policy that encourages a crush to the border through amnesty, catch and release. Yes they oppose the very technology being used to stop them 2000 miles south of Chicago but they are all for creating a restrictive path for students to reach school and monitor them as they walk. So much for civil liberties, add a gun free kill zone filled with students buying and selling drugs for the cartels. Easy Pickens now! I suppose those drones can drop instant police or maybe ordinance? Take pictures, the police already know who is doing the killings but the Top Cop would rather instruct his army of traitors to gun down law abiding armed citizens. Hey how about the Dems walk these kids to school down those killing fields?

  • Gee

    How about just carpet bomb the city and start over?

    I see them everyday here in Chicago – I’ve been seeing them for the past few months already. They sound like corn-dusters, so annoying.
