3. Dart's pouting for a reason

He'd rather talk about anything else and not discuss the high profile escapes last year from the jail he's responsible for (bedsheets out a window in broad daylight) or the track record of DUI and D&D arrests for the "special deputies" he's appointed that are allowed to carry.

But mainly he is very miffed that he didn't get the big cash windfall that would have come from a "May Issue" system. Plus he got taken to the woodshed by the head of the Illinois State Police 2 weeks ago and told that he was no different than the other sheriffs in Illinois and had to abide by the same rules.

BTW Dart is a pure politician, elected by the Cook County machine with no law enforcement background or street time. The question has been asked, but not answered; "Where did he get his firearms training to carry?"

An update from the President of the Cook County Bord on how the jails are run by your hero Sheriff Tom Dart.

"As I've said before, the jail is the intersection of racism and poverty." óCook County board president Toni Preckwinkle
