For The Children Update

Way back in May, news broke that Chicago’s favorite mayor was speeding and running more red lights than a gangbanger in a rented black Dodge Charger hightailing it from a shooting. Barely 4 months later, it’s pretty much the same shit, different day:
“In May, the mayor said he had instructed his bodyguards to slow down and obey traffic laws like everyone else. They haven’t.
At the time, Rahm Emanuel publicly dressed down his drivers.
“I said, ‘Follow the law, nobody’s above the law, slow down, period,'” Emanuel said in May.
But within an hour of speaking those words, cameras clocked the mayor’s motorcade speeding 12 miles an hour over the limit near Douglas Park.
In the four months since the I-Team first uncovered the mayor’s chauffeurs chafing against the rules of the road, they have accrued eight more violations, an average of a violation every other week.”
In the mayor’s defense, he’s not the one driving… he’s in the backseat telling his driver to “step on it asshole!” and “blow that light you fuckin’ prick!“.
So we made that last part up, anyway, our colleagues over at Crime in Wrigleyville & Boystown have a rundown of the infractions.
