Media traction for National Guard in Chicago's dangerous neighborhoods


In this video from WGN we see Mayor Daley's and Gov. Quinn's reaction to state Reps John Fritchey and LaShawn Ford's call for National Guard troops to supplement the Chicago Police. You can read this write-up at WGN-TV and this report of the press conference for Fritchey and Ford at Chicago Breaking News.

On Chicago Tonight, state Rep. John Fritchey and Mike Flannery discuss the call to bring in the National Guard to quell Urban Violence.

LaShawn Ford was on The O'Reilly Factor to also discuss his call for National Guard on city streets, but he was also on Studio B. If I find any video of him on The O'Reilly Factor I will post it.

He was also on GML Monday night as well but I'll just link to McClendon's Blog and you can watch the clips there instead!

This story has gotten plenty of traction. It was even Monday's Question of the Day at the Capitol Fax.

And my post over at Mechanics was linked over at Gaper's Block Merge!
