Second City Cop left the internet for a period of time because of a warning that the City of Chicago government was hunting for them. They’re back.
I was sad when they posted that they were leaving the public square. A big hat tip to @percival for letting me know they have returned. At least two Chicago cops are once again exposing the stupidity and corruption in the Windy City, as well as the Progressive nonsense across the US.
They call balls and strikes with an acerbic sense of humor and sarcasm that appeals to someone who has worked the streets. No whining, and no Lt. Hug and Release nonsense.
