Danny Solis

Nearly everyone agrees: One of the best ways to stem the violence terrorizing some Chicago neighborhoods is to protect witnesses who report crimes. Ald. Danny Solis (25) has an idea that sounds pretty good: use the Internet.

The Chicago News Cooperative describes his idea and other hi-tech ways to provide witnesses some sense of anonymity when they report a crime to police.
This would be a lot more effective than Mayor Richard M. Daley's restrictions on having a gun in your home.
