Chicago works to prevent private business; not illegal drug trafficking

Published: August 4, 2012

ABC News reported Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel was supporting efforts to block the opening of Chick-fil-A restaurants in his city due to comments its president, Dan Cathy, made about gay marriages. Later, CNBC had a story about the involvement of street gangs in the trafficking of illegal prescription drugs and mentioned that membership in Chicago street gangs was estimated to be about 50,000. It seems Chicago officials are ineffective in combating the sale of illegal drugs, but may be capable of preventing people from buying chicken sandwiches.
