Saturday slaying took place on Safe Passage route (Chicago)
Chicago Tribune ^ | 8/12/13 | Randi Belisomo

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.

ChiTown won't be safe 'till The Ballerina and his 'rat minions are gone.

In the mind of a Lefty, such as it is, all you have to do is change the name of something and you fix it!

I wonder how much longer it will be before all those corporate money makers in Chicago pick up and leave like they did in Detroit.

Pick any large American cities run by black Democrats. The dominoes have started to tumble...

maybe the memo wasn’t in the shooter’s native language.

now we’ll need a program to print them in 150 different languages.

The privately owned Detroit bus company gives free rides to kids in after school programs. Better yet, they drop them off at their front door if it isn’t too far off route.

Or it was written in cursive.

Is a “safe passenger route” anything like a “gun free zone”?

You mean like calling Obamacare the ‘Affordable Care Act’? Or deciding, after millennia, that the word ‘marriage’ doesn’t mean the union of a man and a woman? Or the myriad other issues that they have changed the name of so they could destroy it? I wonder what name they will choose for this once great country when Obama’s America goes bankrupt?

“Safe Passage route” means everything else is a No-Go ZONE

They should call it the Green Zone like they did in Baghdad. It just means you’re slightly safer inside the zone than out.

No. Soon it will be like the safe-passage fee we pay Al Queda and/or the Taliban to get materiel to our troops in afagansistana.

Move the Board of Trade, the Merc and all the other high profile cash generating businesses out of the corrupt Democratically controlled Chicago. It is not too far from becoming Detroit on steroids. Hiroshima in '45 would be a paradise compared to what the Marxist Democrats are going to present to Chicago.

The ONLY “safe passage route” anywhere near Chicago goes way down in Kentucky and then circumvents Chicago entirely.
Nothing nearer than 300 miles would be considered “marginal territory”.

Maybe it was written in cursive ( whitey code writing)

Careful on that route through Kentucky

It behooves me to this day why Boeing decided Chicago was a good place to move headquarters

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.
