McCarthy outlines police security plans for Taste of Chicago

Garry McCarthy looks for a telephone booth so he can change in to his UNDERDOG Superhero Costume

The formula for this year’s Taste of Chicago — food, live music and free admission — is pretty much the same as in the past, and yet this year’s festival in Grant Park will be markedly different.

The Taste has been downsized, its aspirations brought down to earth. It will last for five days starting Wednesday, half the run of a year ago.

The change was made to cut the chance of a drain on the city treasury. But participating restaurants, which have seen the event become less lucrative in recent years, now are unsure what to expect.

Officials, meanwhile, hope Taste will mimic last year’s record in security. The 2011 run had no serious crimes, although some wonder if fears of city violence have kept people away.

Police Supt. Garry McCarthy said Sunday that officers will be highly visible at the Taste and that undercover personnel will monitor crowds.

He said the department will use a variety of tools, including remote cameras. Uniformed officers and private security will closely monitor entrances for the Grant Park event and alcohol ordinances will be “strictly” enforced, McCarthy said.

Is there ever such an item as "security" when mobs of blacks are around?

Really?

Part of McUnderdogs strategy is the banning of all turkey legs. He feels if we take turkey from the gangbangers they wont have a leg to stand on. Also this Wednesday is going to be turkey leg turn in day. $50 gift card for each one turned in. The gangbangers are going to gobble these up fast.

TOC is gonna be a clusterfuck..the nigs will go wild and the Almighty chicago police will stand and watch and do NOTHING out of fear of legal ramifications.

Charge the fucking niggers 25 bucks at the gate.That should keep most of them home.

Or allow concealed carry in this state.What dont you idiots get?
ITS MY RIGHT.
You CANT lower the crime in Chicago and do little to nothing to stop the gangs and violence,hence,you leave us the "good" people in chicago to fend for ourselves yet wont allow us the means to do so. Fuck that.

If this city wants to cater to the animals causing havoc downtown, let the Taste vendors get money from them.

No need to wonder if fear of crime kept law-abiding people away: It did! And guess what? Until IL and Shitcago gets concealed carry for law abiding people, we're never coming back.

Rip off parking. Rip off red light cameras. Rip off speed cameras. Rip off sales taxes. Rip off take out taxes. Rip off soda taxes. Rip off (insert fee/tax here). Rip off mobs of shitheads out on wildings.

Fuck it.

My partner and I put a snake in a purse and left it on a bus bench one time. Carload of coons snatched it up. Funny as shit.

To keep the niggers away just charge an online fee for tickets like Naperville does. Problem solved.

Does he include himself under the "variety of tools" statement? After reading how he "fount da gun in da licka sto" bullshit, he brings being a tool to a whole new level.

And that zero tolerance of booze is gonna leave him walking around the Taste with the shakes.
