Cpl Conner Lowry, a 24 year old, died in Afghanistan last week. A funeral procession was held last Friday and as the hearse was driven past, hundreds of people lined the streets.
But as they were lined the streets, some were ticketed!
Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel said he was furious about this. “When this was brought to the mayor’s attention, he was livid and immediately ordered the Department of Revenue to rescind the tickets.”
The city has since voided all the tickets issued in this vicinity during the time of the procession.
