Here we go, the bangers are at it. You can correct the figure from 12 to 20 as the smoke clears, so to speak.

It's been a bloody year in Chicago. Local news media report the city has seen 500 murders happen in 2012. Chicago hit the grim milestone last night when a 40-year-old man was shot in the head while standing outside a convenience store in this West Side neighborhood.
Even if everyone says it, that doesn’t make it true.
CHICAGO -- The Chicago City Council Wednesday voted 43-3 to approve a new city pot policy.
The ordinance gives police the option to issue a ticket for possession of 15 grams of marijuana or less. Arrests would still be mandated for anyone caught smoking pot in public or possessing marijuana in or near a school or in or near a park. The new rules go into effect Aug. 4.
Under the plan, anyone caught with pot under the age of 17 or without proper identification would still be arrested. Tickets would range from $250 to $500. A portion of that money, Emanuel said, would be earmarked for an anti-drug campaign aimed at kids.
Yes, the police say because the men stayed with a man who had home-brew making equipment that they are terrorists. This is the same state were you get life in prison for public filming of mafia/ police.
Today, the city's officers know that if they so much as raise their clubs, the footage will be all over YouTube, reminding the world of what was called a "police riot" during the 1968 Democratic National Convention. Any misconduct could revive other embarrassments, too, such as detectives torturing confessions out of suspects and an off-duty officer's brutal beating of a bartender that was broadcast around the world.

A new communication technology that could send a message directly THROUGH the Earth - or another planet - was shown off for the first time this week. Scientists coded a message into beam of 'neutrinos' - a tiny subatomic particle - and sent it through 240 metres of solid rock. The first-of-its-kind transmission simply said, 'Neutrino.'
CHICAGO (AP) — Smoking a joint once a week or a bit more apparently doesn't harm the lungs, suggests a 20-year study that bolsters evidence that marijuana doesn't do the kind of damage tobacco does.
Went to this event last night. It was pretty fucking sweet. It was a beer convention basically. Did pretty good until I hit up the midwest distillery section where they let everyone taste liquor. Finally tried Goose Island Bourbon County!

By a 5-4 vote and splitting along conservative and liberal lines, the nation's highest court extended its landmark 2008 ruling that individual Americans have a constitutional right to own guns to all the cities and states for the first time. The right to bear arms, under the Second Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, previously applied to just federal laws and federal enclaves, like Washington D.C., where the court struck down a similar handgun ban in its 2008 ruling.
This is the extraordinary moment a photographer captured bolts of lightning striking not one, but two Chicago landmarks at the same time. Electricity rushed down the lightning rods atop the The Willis Tower and the Trump Tower at the exact same instant last night.
With last year’s title featuring Chicago Blackhawks winger Patrick Kane, NHL 11 marks the first time that EA SPORTS has put back to back players from the same team on the cover of the NHL franchise.

Iraq? Afghanistan? South Africa? Nope, Chicago.
Mr. Badass. This your neighborhood Fido?
A suburban Chicago police officer caught on dashcam hitting a motorist 15 times with his metal baton and firing a stun gun at the man's passenger has been charged with felony aggravated battery and official misconduct, and more charges are possible, prosecutors say. Mandarino's attorney, Ed Wandering, says Mandarino's record speaks for itself. "He's a decorated officer," Wandering says. "He was officer of the year three or four years ago."
