Troopers On Patrol In Chicago Could Become Gang ''Trophies," Warns Topinka


A top state official is sounding the alarm over plans to send Illinois State Police troopers into the middle of the street violence in Chicago. 

 

Governor Pat Quinn announced plans to send 40 troopers to assist Chicago police in rounding up violent fugitives who may be responsible for some of the gang and gun violence. 

 

But Comptroller Judy Baar Topinka fears those troopers, in their distinctive uniforms, will have a target on their backs as they become a coveted “trophy” for gang members.
