As Chicago becomes increasingly violent, it would only make sense that the Windy City’s police department would have more bulletproof vests.

Unfortunately, as a report from Chicago’s local ABC affiliate proves, city government has no interest in providing the men and women in blue with such life-saving equipment.

As the WLS-TV report noted, “Bulletproof vests need to be replaced every five years. The cost is $500 or more, all coming out of the pockets of officers.”
