911 in Chicago went down late Monday night. And no one knew why. From 9 p.m. until 1 a.m. police officers were unable to receive emergency calls from the dispatch center. Instead, dispatchers used their radios to transmit emergency messages to the police.
This means, of course, that police were on their own in Chicago for four hours last night in Chicago. This is a city run by Obama lackey, Mayor Rahm Emanuel; it is also a city suffering from a massive crime wave. The city also has a severe budget crisis. So what happened? Was it a shortage of city investment? Was it a mix-up by union employees? We have yet to find out. But until the answer is known, residents of Chicago must worry about the responsiveness of emergency services.
