In case you didn't know...

Chicago crime has gotten bad to the point where martial law might be declared if certain elected officials get their way. So what happens under martial law? Well...

Habeus Corpus is suspended as is most other freedoms guaranteed under the Constitution. The military becomes the government and to defy them means...well, let's just say you won't get a fair trial if you're not shot first. The people of Chicago under martial law will NOT HAVE ANY RIGHTS WHATSOEVER.

Protests? Nah, just tear gas them, they're clearly disturbing the peace! Out after the military says get in? ARRESTED! Wave a stick at the military overlords? SHOT AND KILLED!

The people of Chicago would be little more than meat to the military should martial law be implemented. On top of this, it sets a dangerous precedent--if the city government doesn't work out its own problems, we'll just send in the military like a coup!

How does this kind of thing not scare anyone? Have we become so complacent that we will willingly allow every single freedom we have destroyed in the name of security?

Thankfully, from what I've read, the governor will not call for martial law unless the mayor of Chicago specifically asks for it. They mayor would be asked to commit political suicide, which won't happen unless things get REALLY out of hand. However, I'm waiting for someone to say things have gotten worse in Chicago, because the whole idea of martial law needs to be tested on a small group before you deploy it nationally.
