    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

21 ambulance response with 2 fatalities occured at the Cermak Ave. Red Line L entrance. For all those who have visited Chicago in the past, this was right by Chinatown. Truck failed to make a turn and slammed into the escalator during rush hour. Varying totals on injuries, but heard something like 11 reds, 2 black, and anywhere from 7-13 greens. What a day to be listening...anyone else catch this?

I'm in Chicago (Loyola) and I saw the breaking news blurb on tv. That area has so many lights and they change quickly, so I'm not surprised there was an accident. It's quite unfortunate.
