... just the way the world works? Even in the first world we find huge amounts of corruption and drug rings. Just like here in Chicago. Amazing that this was going on in the city, but in many ways I'm not too shocked. Corruption like this is pretty bad, but it just goes to show that it happens and I'm sure it happes to some degree on every level of government, from the White House to your local town hall.
Heroin rings in the city Water Department, sounds like something from Lima or Mexico City or Kabul... not Chicago.
