Why does it require Federal Prosecutors to guard and unguard in Chicago and Illinois?

The Chicago Tribune columnist opinion titled, Giving Due Credit for Chicago Gang Bust, contained this ending statement.

“But we can’t let our guard down. And we certainly can’t allow Trump and his supporters to take credit for someone else’s hard work.”

The Purpose of This Post

Is to relate an ancient proverb and question a revealing comment and ask why Illinois has a history of the need for Federal Prosecutors.  

King Solomon

If you see the poor oppressed in a district, and justice and rights denied, do not be surprised at such things; for one official is eyed by a higher one, and over them both are others higher still. (Ecclesiastes 5:8)


judgment and justice perverted, flagrant manner, marvel not at the matter, nor no providence attending the affairs,oppressions of poor and innocent men;

What’s My Point?

Illinois politics has a history of Federal Prosecutors, rather than elected prosecutors, assistance to convict criminals including three Governors.

Is the writer’s comment “But we can’t let our guard down,” a revealing comment that there has been some kind of conspiracy in Chicago and Illinois from what the ancient above King Solomon observation not to marvel about Chicago and Illinois uncommon guarding of its citizens?

You Decide

Did King Solomon accurately describe Chicago and Illinois politics 3000 years ago with the words he used?  For example, poor oppressed in a district, just and rights denied, one official higher and other still?

Why does Chicago and Illinois seem to have a history of a need to have a Federal Prosecutor remove higher ups such as gang leaders, politicians, even three Governors?

Does it perhaps a clue to answer this question have something to do with the writers unguard comment to not give credit to Trump?

Regards and good will blogging.
