General who led National guard in 'Nawlins post Katrina says let's put troops in Chi-town!
 
To reduce the homicides and shootings plaguing Chicago streets, elected officials should consider calling on the state and federal governments for help, even the National Guard if necessary, said a retired Army lieutenant general who spearheaded the military response after Hurricane Katrina.

"Just like we do with any disaster. When the tornado comes, or the floods come, the federal government comes in to help," Russel L. Honore said Thursday at a news conference in Chicago.

"Let's not let this be about pride. 'We are big ol' Chicago, we are too proud, we can handle this.' Maybe you can't handle it. If you need help, get the federal government here. But let's control the streets so children and elderly people can be in a safe community."

Honore, known for his no-nonsense leadership, was in Chicago as part of The HistoryMakers project to record and archive the stories of African-American military leaders. The nonprofit organization houses the largest collection of recorded histories of African-Americans...........http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/l...,2012172.story

If they do this in Detroit, Filtha-delphia, Baltimore and DC There'd be no more "white flight" (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/White_flight) and these cities wouldn't be struggling financially any longer.....

You have a real penchant for race baiting issues. Get over yourself.
