Ferguson and Chicago

Feeling cynical today, aided by this article about how the City of Chicago uses civil forfeiture to suck money out of the poor -- or, I suppose, anyone else unfortunate enough to get caught in their net. This is all too similar to how towns like Ferguson, Missouri (you all remember Ferguson, right?) use their police as a revenue source to keep their city budgets intact.

Chicago, of course, is one of the bluest of blue cities out there.

But Chicago's leaders care.

Deeply.

About something.

Hint: it isn't you.
