You Have to Love the Advice

Jody Wies - the head of Chicago PD - told women to carry a cell phone, because someone is attacking women at night. Well, guns are illegal in Chicago - handguns anyway. Chicago homicide, overall crime rate down :: CHICAGO SUN-TIMES :: Chicago Crime

So there is good news. Still a lot of crime, but the Chicago PD is doing something right. But the city is really a mess.
Overall violent crime was down 4.4 percent in the first six months. But Weis noted that that there have been several incidents in June of women being attacked at night, and he encouraged women to travel with friends, stay away from poorly lit areas, be aware of their surroundings and carry a cell phone.
Yeah, that cell phone will keep them safe.
