Chicago Basically To Be Shut Down For NATO Summit

Now, why would they do this?

(CBS Chicago) A large security zone around McCormick Place will be off limits to Chicagoans, and the Museum Campus, Lake Shore Drive and several major expressways and streets will be shut down before or during the NATO Summit, under a plan revealed on Friday.

All of this comes on top of a large restricted air space zone above the city. Anybody violating that airspace could be shot down.

(Metro riders) may be subject to TSA-style pat downs and screenings and they can expect delays for security sweeps. Service may be reduced during the summit, but those details are not yet available. Metra officials said they hoped to have a plan finalized next week.

Hint: they aren’t worried about Conservatives/Republicans/Tea Party members causing problems.
