The simple solution is individual toilet & sink bathrooms with locking doors located along a main hallway. Single person entry like portolets.
Nobody could "corner" anybody that way without being in public view.
Put whatever labels you want on the doors.
Video surveillance of the hallway.
That doesn't intrude on anyone's privacy.
And if the facilities get vandalized, you will know the perp.

How many would be needed for a thousand kids, in a large school?

And how would you stop them from using those as copulation closets? These are KIDS. Don't you remember what being a kid was like? Even when I was a kid...every large, closable space, or even not so, was there for trysts. One classmate, lived on the edge of the city (a growing suburb) and his family owned an old farmhouse and barn. Much of the farm had been subdivided and sold; but the barn was there.

The hayloft was a popular place for Friday-night nookie-nookie. And drinking and toking...

Give them a lit place, even with a stool to sit on while figuring out the best way...OMFG.

Airplane size bathrooms and vid cams in the hallway.
If they want to join the the mile high club or have a smoke, doesn't bother me. But it would prevent bathroom forced rape and exhibitionism

Honestly. We're not talking about adults here. You want twelve-year-olds copulating in toilets?

You want them SMOKING in toilets? Or starting fires in them (something that's not unheard-of, even now)?

Even back in the 1970s, the damage to the teen public day-care-center I was assigned to, in the toilets, from smokers, was significant. They'd smoke pot and get all giggly and lose inhibitions, and set the trash can on fire for laughs. Or TP rolls. Finally, the school authorities gave up and gave kids a designated outdoor area for smoking...which I don't have a big problem with, actually. We weren't hysterical about tobacco in those days; and frankly few continued the habit when they became adults.

The problem here is the total privacy, given to very-young adolescents, many of whom have control issues.

Worried about smoking? Just like in a plane, smoke detectors.
About teen consensual copulation? That can happen anywhere else too.

What do you want? "See through doors"?

Really don't get your problem and don't care to hear more about it.

So. You want to invite them to do it?

And then you'll wonder why traditional mate-bonding patterns are gone (yes, early promiscuity works against successful marriages/pairings later) and every kid has syph.

I remember an early Rush Limbaugh riff: An expert, in Redbook, back when magazines were a thing...this wise woman recommended parents let kids and their dates do it in (usually her) bedroom. You know...keep things safe.

Rush asked if Mom was supposed to bring cigarettes in, for afterwards.

There's a difference, a big one, between putting bad behavior in perspective; and INVITING it. Private johns anyone can access, in a school, is going to be a disciplinary headache...and eventually, the scene of some violent actions by bullies or student-rapists.

the word 'equity' keeps coming back to mind but i digress


that's no way to run a City/State, constantly under chaotic siege unless stability isn't your thing...begs the question, how much longer would / could that city hold out if it taxed everyone 100%? - they have to be getting close to F status

...

anyone wanna bet Soros is having a steak tartare sandwich as Chicago destroys itself? (i'll bet that one mouthful his security has to have, i'll bet it's good food)

life must have been easier when a majority of the population was going a similar way, up

some american cities have tolerated corruption since they were incorporated

tells me, some americans never experienced that american dream


and my depression kicks in: what a toilet bowl they've had us all drink out of...not all of us have had to take a full mouthful yet but we can all smell it by now

I'm sure when the Jack Booted Government Thugs or Mindless Thieving Goons start knocking down your door, Shootist, you will be ready for them with plenty of ammo and if need be exit this world firing like a good patriot!!!
You are quite correct sir. Where I live is nothing like where these poor unfortunate merchants are attempting to carve out a business. Where they choose to settle is their business. If that shit was happening in my neck of the woods you had best believe the actions you describe would be undertaken by me and dozens of like minded folks near me. Note: Exiting the world any time soon isn't part of our current plan sir!

Dad beaten to death while hanging Christmas decorations outside home, Chicago cops say BY MITCHELL WILLETTS UPDATED DECEMBER 13, 2021 11:33 AM A man in Chicago, Illinois was beaten to death while hanging Christmas lights outside his home.

A husband and father was beaten to death while putting up Christmas decorations outside his Chicago home, and police are searching for the people responsible, news outlets reported. Jose Tellez, 49, was hanging lights with his family when the suspects appeared “out of the blue,” a long-time friend and resident of the Gage Park neighborhood told WLS. It was around 6:30 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 11 when a sedan pulled up near the home and two men got out, the outlet reported. Men armed with blunt objects set upon Tellez, bashing him in the head, according to the Chicago Police Department. Left nearly dead in his front yard, he was taken to a hospital, but soon died from his injuries, WMAQ reported.

Family members have launched an online fundraiser to help cover the cost of Tellez’ funeral. “He was a loving husband, father, brother and son. He leaves behind a wife and three children,” it reads. As of the morning of Dec. 13, no one has been taken into custody but detectives are working the case, CPD said. Police have not said what, if anything, may have motivated the attack.

According to authorities, Valdez intended to buy marijuana from the defendant. After Valdez attempted to take the drugs without paying for them, the defendant chased him, authorities said. A struggle ensued during which Valdez ended up on top of the defendant, who reached for a utility tool that contained a blade, according to reports. Valdez was stabbed during a subsequent struggle.

The kid that got killed was a thief.

CHICAGO – Today, Mayor Lori E. Lightfoot, the Chicago Department of Public Health (CDPH), and the Chicago Department of Business Affairs & Consumer Protection (BACP) announced that any individual 5 years of age or older will be required to show proof that they are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 to dine indoors, visit gyms, or enjoy entertainment venues where food or drink are being served:
This new requirement goes into effect on January 3, 2022 and is in response to a rise in COVID-19 cases both locally and nationally, driven in part by the Omicron variant, and is similar to requirements already in place in other large cities, including New York City and Los Angeles.
“Despite our diligent and equitable vaccine distribution efforts throughout this year, unfortunately, our city continues to see a surge of COVID-19 Delta and now Omicron cases,” said Mayor Lightfoot. “New steps must be taken to protect the health and wellbeing of our residents. This public health order requiring proof of vaccination to visit certain indoor public places is a necessary measure to ensure we can continue to enjoy our city’s many amenities as we enter the new year.”
“To put it simply, if you have been living vaccine-free, your time is up. If you wish to live life with the ease to do the things you love, you must be vaccinated,” Lightfoot added. “This health order may pose an inconvenience to the unvaccinated, and in fact it is inconvenient by design.”
Patrons age 5 and older must show proof of full vaccination; patrons age 16 and over will also need to provide identification that matches their vaccination record. If any employees of these venues and establishments are not fully vaccinated, the employer must ensure that these employees both continue to mask when interacting with patrons and provide proof of a weekly negative COVID-19 test.
The City of Chicago mask mandate also remains in effect for all public indoor settings. The new order does not affect this mask requirement. The order will remain in effect until the City of Chicago is through this Omicron-driven surge and the risk of overwhelming hospital capacity has passed.
“This new requirement will not eliminate COVID risk, but it will help ensure a much safer indoor environment for fully vaccinated Chicagoans, as well as for the employees working in these higher-risk settings. As we head further into the winter months, we must take this step now,” said CDPH Commissioner Allison Arwady, M.D. “With Omicron, I do expect to see many more COVID reinfections and breakthrough cases, but luckily the vaccines continue to protect very well against severe illness, hospitalization, and death—and even more so when people have also had a booster shot. I remain most worried about the hundreds of thousands of Chicagoans who still have not received a single dose of COVID vaccine nor recovered from COVID infection. I’m worried for their own health, but also for the risk they pose to others’ health and to our hospital capacity—and while we are in this concerning surge, we must limit that risk.”
Chicago was already experiencing a COVID-19 surge thanks to the Delta variant, and as the much more contagious Omicron variant has become dominant over the last week, that surge has dramatically worsened. The city is now averaging more than 1,700 new COVID cases in Chicago residents every day, a 79% increase from one week ago. Chicago’s test positivity rate is now over 7%, up from 4.1% one week ago. More than 60 Chicagoans are being newly hospitalized with COVID each day and an average of 10 Chicagoans are dying from COVID each day. The large majority of Chicago’s COVID hospitalizations and deaths continue to be in people who are not vaccinated. All of these figures are the worst they have been since January 2021, before vaccines were widely available.
Effective Monday, January 3, 2022, the Chicago Vaccine Requirements will apply to the following public indoor places:
  • Indoor Dining: Establishments where food or beverages are served, including, but not limited to, restaurants, bars, fast food establishments, coffee shops, tasting rooms, cafeterias, food courts, dining areas of grocery stores, breweries, wineries, distilleries, banquet halls, and hotel ballrooms; and
  • Indoor Fitness: Gyms and fitness venues, including, but not limited to, gyms, recreation facilities, fitness centers, yoga, Pilates, cycling, barre, and dance studios, hotel gyms, boxing and kickboxing gyms, fitness boot camps, and other facilities used for conducting indoor group fitness classes; and
  • Indoor entertainment and recreation venues where food or beverages are served: Including, but not limited to, movie theaters, music and concert venues, live performance venues, adult entertainment venues, commercial event and party venues, sports arenas, performing arts theaters, bowling alleys, arcades, card rooms, family entertainment centers, play areas, pool and billiard halls, and other recreational game centers.
The vaccine requirement does not include houses of worship; grocery stores (though indoor dining sections within grocery stores would be included); locations in O’Hare International Airport or Midway International Airport; locations in a residential or office building the use of which is limited to residents, owners, or tenants of that building; or food service establishments providing only charitable food services, such as soup kitchens. Schools and day cares also are not included in the order.
Proof of vaccination means a CDC COVID-19 Vaccination Record Card or an official immunization record from the jurisdiction, state, or country where the vaccine was administered or a digital or physical photo of such a card or record, reflecting the person’s name, vaccine brand, and date administered.
“Chicago’s business community is essential to limiting the spread of COVID-19, including the recent Omicron variant,” said BACP Commissioner Ken Meyer. “Chicago’s businesses have stepped up repeatedly to protect the health of customers and workers. The vaccine requirement, along with the masking requirement, are our best defense against ending the COVID-19 pandemic.”
Establishments will be required to develop and keep a written record describing the protocol for implementing and enforcing the vaccine requirement. Also, establishments will be required to prominently post signage at each publicly accessible entrance to the covered location and at least one location inside the covered location that is conspicuously visible, informing patrons of the vaccination requirement.
The following individuals are exempted from the vaccine requirement:
  • Individuals entering an establishment for less than 10 minutes for ordering and carrying out food; delivering goods; or using the bathroom;
  • A nonresident performing artist who does not regularly perform or render services in a covered location, or a nonresident individual accompanying such a performing artist, while the performing artist or individual is in a covered location for the purposes of such artist’s performance;
  • A nonresident professional athlete or a nonresident individual accompanying such professional athlete, who enters a covered location as part of their regular employment for purposes of the professional athlete/sports team competition;
  • Individuals who have previously received a medical or religious exemption (e.g. from an employer), provided such patrons show the establishment proof of the medical or religious exemption and a COVID-19 test administered by a medical professional within the last 72 hours prior to entering.
  • An individual 18 years of age or younger who enters a covered location to participate in an activity organized by a school or after-school program offered by any pre-kindergarten through grade twelve public or non-public school; and
  • An individual who enters for the purposes of voting in a municipal, state, or federal election; or, pursuant to law, assisting or accompanying a voter or observing such election.

  • An individual who enters for the purposes of voting in a municipal, state, or federal election; or, pursuant to law, assisting or accompanying a voter or observing such election.

CHICAGO – Today, Mayor Lori E. Lightfoot, the Chicago Department of Public Health (CDPH), and the Chicago Department of Business Affairs & Consumer Protection (BACP) announced that any individual 5 years of age or older will be required to show proof that they are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 to dine indoors, visit gyms, or enjoy entertainment venues where food or drink are being served:
This new requirement goes into effect on January 3, 2022 and is in response to a rise in COVID-19 cases both locally and nationally, driven in part by the Omicron variant, and is similar to requirements already in place in other large cities, including New York City and Los Angeles.
“Despite our diligent and equitable vaccine distribution efforts throughout this year, unfortunately, our city continues to see a surge of COVID-19 Delta and now Omicron cases,” said Mayor Lightfoot. “New steps must be taken to protect the health and wellbeing of our residents. This public health order requiring proof of vaccination to visit certain indoor public places is a necessary measure to ensure we can continue to enjoy our city’s many amenities as we enter the new year.”
“To put it simply, if you have been living vaccine-free, your time is up. If you wish to live life with the ease to do the things you love, you must be vaccinated,” Lightfoot added. “This health order may pose an inconvenience to the unvaccinated, and in fact it is inconvenient by design.”
Patrons age 5 and older must show proof of full vaccination; patrons age 16 and over will also need to provide identification that matches their vaccination record. If any employees of these venues and establishments are not fully vaccinated, the employer must ensure that these employees both continue to mask when interacting with patrons and provide proof of a weekly negative COVID-19 test.
The City of Chicago mask mandate also remains in effect for all public indoor settings. The new order does not affect this mask requirement. The order will remain in effect until the City of Chicago is through this Omicron-driven surge and the risk of overwhelming hospital capacity has passed.
“This new requirement will not eliminate COVID risk, but it will help ensure a much safer indoor environment for fully vaccinated Chicagoans, as well as for the employees working in these higher-risk settings. As we head further into the winter months, we must take this step now,” said CDPH Commissioner Allison Arwady, M.D. “With Omicron, I do expect to see many more COVID reinfections and breakthrough cases, but luckily the vaccines continue to protect very well against severe illness, hospitalization, and death—and even more so when people have also had a booster shot. I remain most worried about the hundreds of thousands of Chicagoans who still have not received a single dose of COVID vaccine nor recovered from COVID infection. I’m worried for their own health, but also for the risk they pose to others’ health and to our hospital capacity—and while we are in this concerning surge, we must limit that risk.”
Chicago was already experiencing a COVID-19 surge thanks to the Delta variant, and as the much more contagious Omicron variant has become dominant over the last week, that surge has dramatically worsened. The city is now averaging more than 1,700 new COVID cases in Chicago residents every day, a 79% increase from one week ago. Chicago’s test positivity rate is now over 7%, up from 4.1% one week ago. More than 60 Chicagoans are being newly hospitalized with COVID each day and an average of 10 Chicagoans are dying from COVID each day. The large majority of Chicago’s COVID hospitalizations and deaths continue to be in people who are not vaccinated. All of these figures are the worst they have been since January 2021, before vaccines were widely available.
Effective Monday, January 3, 2022, the Chicago Vaccine Requirements will apply to the following public indoor places:
  • Indoor Dining: Establishments where food or beverages are served, including, but not limited to, restaurants, bars, fast food establishments, coffee shops, tasting rooms, cafeterias, food courts, dining areas of grocery stores, breweries, wineries, distilleries, banquet halls, and hotel ballrooms; and
  • Indoor Fitness: Gyms and fitness venues, including, but not limited to, gyms, recreation facilities, fitness centers, yoga, Pilates, cycling, barre, and dance studios, hotel gyms, boxing and kickboxing gyms, fitness boot camps, and other facilities used for conducting indoor group fitness classes; and
  • Indoor entertainment and recreation venues where food or beverages are served: Including, but not limited to, movie theaters, music and concert venues, live performance venues, adult entertainment venues, commercial event and party venues, sports arenas, performing arts theaters, bowling alleys, arcades, card rooms, family entertainment centers, play areas, pool and billiard halls, and other recreational game centers.
The vaccine requirement does not include houses of worship; grocery stores (though indoor dining sections within grocery stores would be included); locations in O’Hare International Airport or Midway International Airport; locations in a residential or office building the use of which is limited to residents, owners, or tenants of that building; or food service establishments providing only charitable food services, such as soup kitchens. Schools and day cares also are not included in the order.
Proof of vaccination means a CDC COVID-19 Vaccination Record Card or an official immunization record from the jurisdiction, state, or country where the vaccine was administered or a digital or physical photo of such a card or record, reflecting the person’s name, vaccine brand, and date administered.
“Chicago’s business community is essential to limiting the spread of COVID-19, including the recent Omicron variant,” said BACP Commissioner Ken Meyer. “Chicago’s businesses have stepped up repeatedly to protect the health of customers and workers. The vaccine requirement, along with the masking requirement, are our best defense against ending the COVID-19 pandemic.”
Establishments will be required to develop and keep a written record describing the protocol for implementing and enforcing the vaccine requirement. Also, establishments will be required to prominently post signage at each publicly accessible entrance to the covered location and at least one location inside the covered location that is conspicuously visible, informing patrons of the vaccination requirement.
The following individuals are exempted from the vaccine requirement:
  • Individuals entering an establishment for less than 10 minutes for ordering and carrying out food; delivering goods; or using the bathroom;
  • A nonresident performing artist who does not regularly perform or render services in a covered location, or a nonresident individual accompanying such a performing artist, while the performing artist or individual is in a covered location for the purposes of such artist’s performance;
  • A nonresident professional athlete or a nonresident individual accompanying such professional athlete, who enters a covered location as part of their regular employment for purposes of the professional athlete/sports team competition;
  • Individuals who have previously received a medical or religious exemption (e.g. from an employer), provided such patrons show the establishment proof of the medical or religious exemption and a COVID-19 test administered by a medical professional within the last 72 hours prior to entering.
  • An individual 18 years of age or younger who enters a covered location to participate in an activity organized by a school or after-school program offered by any pre-kindergarten through grade twelve public or non-public school; and
  • An individual who enters for the purposes of voting in a municipal, state, or federal election; or, pursuant to law, assisting or accompanying a voter or observing such election.

At some point the people of Illinois are going to realize that the current mayor of Chicago was selected by Dominion.

Special Prosecutor: Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx Lied To The Public in Smollett Case

Cook County special prosecutor Dan Webb has issued his report on the Jussie Smollett scandal with scathing findings of misconduct by the Cook County State’s Attorney’s Office. The findings include a determination that Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx lied to the public about her communications and role in the scandal. Despite the highly improper handling of the case (including the dropping of the original charges against Smollett), Chicago voters still reelected Foxx who has an appalling record in office. For a native Chicagoan, it is an all-too-familiar pattern of corrupt or incompetent elected officials continuing in office. The question, however, is whether Foxx will face any bar action for allegedly lying to the public about the handling of the case.

The report confirms what many of us have long stated about the Smollett case. The evidence of his guilt was obvious from the start, particularly given his ridiculous account of being attacked around 2am by roaming MAGA-hatted, racist Trump supporters screaming “This is MAGA country.”
By March 2019, prosecutors secured a 16-count grand jury indictment against Smollett for filing false police reports. Then suddenly a few weeks later, Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx dropped all charges – a decision that was universally condemned. The outcry was louder due to Foxx’s correspondence with powerful friends of Smollett and the refusal of her office to fully explain why the charges were dropped.
Webb was appointed Special Prosecutor and Smollett was indicted a second time in Feb. 2020. Ultimately, the jury found Smollett guilty of all but one count of criminal conduct.
Webb confirms what was long suspected: prosecutors thought that they not only had a strong case but a case worthy of prosecution. The report details how the office made “false and/or misleading statements” about the decision to drop the charges for a ridiculous agreement that Smollett perform just 15 hours of community service and pay a $10,000 fee as punishment.
The report found that Foxx’s office “breached its obligations of honesty and transparency.”
The report also found that Foxx had made false or misleading statements about her communication with Smollett’s sister, actress Jurnee Smollett. Foxx told the public that her conversations occurred before Smollett became a suspect. Webb says that those statements were false.
State’s Attorney Foxx learned by February 8, 2019 that Mr. Smollett had become a suspect in CPD’s investigation, yet she continued communicating with Ms. Smollett through February 13, 2019 including via five text messages and three phone calls. State’s Attorney Foxx then made false statements to the media claiming she ceased all communications with Ms. Smollett as soon as she learned that Mr. Smollett was a suspect in CPD’s investigation and no longer merely a victim.
Webb also found that Foxx continued to play a role in scuttling the case after she publicly recused herself.
There is also this alarming line:
Ms. Smollett said that when she asked if Mr. Smollett was now a suspect, State’s Attorney Foxx reponded: “Your brother should be fine as long as he stays consistent.
Given the findings, the question is whether the Illinois bar will review the matter. Foxx’s specific statements could run afoul of ethics rules. Attorneys are generally barred from making “a false statement of material fact or law to a third person.
Foxx is clearly responsible for the breaches found by Webb. Yet, the report details how she knew Smollett was a suspect in communicating with his family and continued to act in the case after promising to recuse herself. Those are serious allegations worthy of an investigation by the bar. Foxx may have undisclosed defenses or explanations. However, there will be few real answers unless the court refers the matter to the Illinois bar (or bar members ask for such a review

Here is the report:

One of Illinois' most powerful politicians and her husband were car-jacked in a Chicago suburb, just two days after Mayor Lori Lightfoot asked the feds to help get the city's spiraling crime under control.
State Senator Kimberly Lightford, the Democratic Senate Majority Leader, and her husband, Eric McKennie, were carjacked by three masked men in a Dodge Durango in the western suburb of Broadview at around 9:45 pm on Tuesday, police saod
Lightford and her husband were driving a Mercedes Benz SUV on the 2000 block of South 20th Avenue when gunmen approached her car, fired multiple shots and took off with her vehicle.
The state senator and her husband were not injured in the incident and police have not named any suspects.

On Wednesday, Lightford issued a statement saying she is grateful to be alive after the traumatic experience and thanked law enforcement.
'First and foremost I am thankful that my husband and I are alive and physically unharmed,' she said in her statement. 'I am trying to process the trauma of what happened. I want to thank everyone who has offered their love and support. I want to especially thank Mayor Katrina Thompson and the Broadview Police Department for their quick and thorough response.'
The incident took place about 12 miles west of Chicago, which is currently fighting a 25-year high murder rate, with 767 homicides occurring within the city so far this year.
Carjackings in the Windy City have jumped by about 32 percent through Sunday, with 1,781, up from 1,352 during the same time last year, Chicago Tribune reported.
Chicago has also seen a 7.5 percent increase in violent crime this year when compared to pre-pandemic levels in 2019, according to an analysis from Axios, with some parts of the city seeing double the number of fatal shootings.
Lightford, a Democrat from Maywood, is the second-highest ranking Democrat in the Illinois Senate behind Senate President Don Harmon, CBS2.com reported.

Her run-in with armed criminals comes two days after Lightfoot pleaded with Attorney General Merrick Garland to send Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms agents to the city for six months to combat rising crime.
Lightfoot announced on Monday that she made a formal request to Garland to send ATF agents to Chicago for six months, a well as more federal prosecutors and federal marshals to help get illegal guns off the streets.
Her request comes after she proposed slashing $80 million from the Chicago Police Department budget in 2020 during 'defund the police' protests.
The proposal was later scaled back and 3.3% of the budget - or $59 million - was cut and Lightfoot has since denounced the 'defund' movement, but Chicago's police union still issued a vote of 'no confidence' in the mayor earlier this year.
'The federal government remains uniquely qualified to help address the scourge of gun violence,' Lightfoot said on Monday. 'We need these additional resources well in advance of next summer.'
Lightfoot, a Democrat, blamed the rise in crime on gang violence - caused by poverty and neglect - and too many illegal guns on the streets.
'I know people are scared,' the mayor told residents at the news conference, noting: 'I want to ensure you that from Day One public safety has been and will be my top priority.
'I have and I will commit every bit of law enforcement muscle to fighting this fight, but I so know that lasting peace and safety will only come to this city when the underlying causes of violence and crime are addressed once and for all.
'There are no quick solutions to the problems we are facing,' she continued, but said: 'We must do better immediately and in the short term to take back control from the criminals who are preying upon us and making all of us less safe.'
She said her goal is to 'proactively and relentlessly bring peace to our city once and for all,' noting that she has brought back the Chicago Police Department's dedicated gun teams, and added more homicide detectives.
Lightfoot also said she has invested in programs to reduce crime, and touted her budget's Our City, Our Safety violence reduction plan.
