I usually jest about the Chicago Cops, but on the whole they are ok.
My recent problem was a few years back when my very pregnant wife's car window was bashed a few blocks from the house at yoga - the criminals had her keys and id, so though they could clean the house out too!!
My wife pulled up in front of our house as they stopped in front and 4 gang members started getting out.
She just looked at them and said, "seriously!".
They got back in and left. The cops were called and waited for a while in the house with her till I could get off work and come home and change the locks. The cops were very nice and I thank them for taking the time to babysit my prego wife.
Never busted the guys as the plates came up in Cicero (near ring suburb) but the cops had nothing on them!
