Great to have The Daily Line’s Mike Fourcher and Cease Fire’s Mark Payne in-studio breaking down Mayor Emanuel’s speech addressing public safety and violence.

Some great stuff coming from the text line tonight regarding Mayor Emanuel’s address. 

Not a fan of Rahm but didn’t he hit several police reform
points- more officers, community involvement, Ipra already being replaced, body
cameras, more training….


Re increased gun violence, why has it been so high this
year? Is it even being investigated?


Public works. Teach a skill, work in the neighborhood, get
some pride of ownership. Like an FDR program in 3-4 neighborhoods. All. Local
temp hires men 18-30.


The only reason he wants to create more jobs is because
droves of people have left the city and he needs more tax revenue coming in to
pay for crap they have neglected for years and now oh we need to get people to
work and companies to come in and give jobs. But as long as he is in the
corporate pocket the average Joe can not get work so the cycle will continue.
Yes we are getting Duracell but it is all corporate jobs what about the little


Nothing new nothing bold, nothing


A little late it’s been like 3 years!!!!


so your Mayor pretty much admits Chicago’s overly restrictive, obviously
illogical gun laws don’t do a thing, the police & public have to work
harder Oh, & of course more
$$$ is needed


It was refreshing that Rahms speech wasn’t a slam session
against the police



How many years has he been in office and now a speech and
some fake emotion and crocodile tears and we all love him!! Give me a break!!
He needs to hire these cops to compensate for not hiring for how many years for
one’s that retired! Now he is a great man!!

More texts coming in:

It’s a two way street, what about people helping police? Do
something about “code of silence ” in the neighborhoods


What businesses will move into a neighborhood with all the
gun violence ! The violence has to stop first! Ask him that!


Ask rahms critics what they mean by bringing jobs. You
can’t build factories w Corp s moving to Mexico etc

Wow! How about this?!

We have the Domino Sugar Bear from approximately 1974 and
we have Hubert the lion from Harris Bank in downtown Chicago from maybe 1976-
that was a large stuffed animal, about 24 inches. Also we have the Jolly Green
Giant from the Green Giant vegetables from that same period 1975 or 1976 and a
pink Hpink Harley Davidson Hog dressed with a leather hat and a leather vest
and leather boots from the Harley Davidson company in the middle ’80s. so where
specifically would I take those items to get looked at they’re all in good
condition. From Pat ,WGN listener
