Ouch.
Chicago crime has led Enterprise’s car-sharing operation to cancel existing reservations in the area and stop taking new ones, the company says.

Enterprise CarShare has had “a lack of vehicle availability” for the past six weeks, as "a direct effect of significant vandalism, theft and fraud," the company told its members via email Tuesday.

About 40 percent of Enterprise CarShare’s fleet had been involved in theft or vandalism, a company spokesman said. A Chicago Police Department spokesman could not immediately comment on whether the department was conducting a broad investigation of the incidents.

The Enterprise CarShare email encouraged members to contact traditional Enterprise Rent-A-Car branch offices "for alternate mobility solutions."

"Enterprise will continue to focus on meeting the transportation needs of Chicagoland, regardless of whether you need a vehicle for an hour, a week or longer," the email said.

I can see why she'd be cautious about being protected by some all-male police squads...

They don't need the whole bucket. They just need one shooter-repelling rock from Lisa Simpson.

OK, it's not quite as dumb as a bucket of rocks, but...Millcreek School District Arms Teachers with Baseball Bats

...oh wait, yes it is just as dumb:
According to Hall, the 16-inch bats were distributed to each teacher, following an in-service training day on how to respond to school shootings.
...
Hall says the bats are primarily "symbolic", but they are now an option for teachers to use, should they need to fight back in a school shooting.

Millcreek Education Association president Jon Cacchione says he supports the decision to arm teachers with bats, which will be locked up in each classroom.
My prediction: within 1 year, about 300 of the bats will have gone missing and the majority of the remaining 200 will be covered in dust and shoved behind other things in the back of the closet.
