Chicago to Implement Street Pole Spy Boxes in the Name of ‘Safety’

These boxes will be shot full of holes when the Revolution comes.

There will be no need. In the event of an armed rebellion, one side or the other will take the power grid offline by shooting enough small holes near the bottoms of substation transformers.

Our infrastructure is ridiculously fragile and unprotected. Whenever someone decides that "the other side" derives a greater advantage from it, it will disappear. Then people who rely upon it for survival will die.

Also, if none of these are stolen, I will be surprised. If none of these are stolen by the very same city contractors who installed them, I will be very surprised. You stay classy, Chicago.
