A double shooting that killed one man Saturday night took place along a CPS Safe Passage route on the South Side.

Ralph McNeal, 54, and a 26-year-old man were shot in the 2900 block of South State Street around 6:15 p.m. They were taken to the hospital and McNeal was pronounced dead around 7 p.m.

Parents of children who will attend Chicago’s Drake Elementary School are on edge because of its location on a designated CPS Safe Passage route. The routes were set up to make the transition to new schools go more smoothly for the students affected by school closures. The program will put vetted community members along these designated routes to help make the walk to and from school more safe.

Save massive demographic change, there are and will be no “safe passages” on the South and West sides of Chicago. And Holder threatens to empty the jails. Look out below.....

A total misnomer, there is no safe passage in Chicago for anyone .... you pays your taxes, fees and protection but you takes your chances anyway.
