Driving by the Whittier Play Lot we saw just how CPS cares about minority public school children. Instead if paving over loose gravel CPS slapdash fencing around the play lot will kill a kid one day soon. There is no need to write anymore about this story just look at the pictures my wife, Emi, and I took today of the dangerous conditions children will be encountering when they come back to school, after the Labor holiday weekend.

Fencing is hanging over a childrens playlot set, see for yourself how criminal CPS is!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
