As if there weren’t going to be enough problems this election year with late mail deliveries possibly tainting some outcomes, Postal Service workers in Chicago are suggesting they could stop carrying mail into some neighborhoods because it has become increasingly dangerous.
USPS workers made the veiled threat after one of their own was shot last week, just another casualty in the long list of murders in yet another Democrat-run city.
Mack Julion, head of the Chicago chapter of the National Association of Letter Carriers, told postal workers to quit delivering mail if they don’t feel safe enough.
“Any letter carrier who does not feel safe in any one of these communities then they are not to deliver mail and customers have to pick up their mail,” Julion said. “We are not going to have another situation where the letter carrier is shot down.”

On Friday, Chicago postal workers attended a rally with community organizers to demand that something be done about the violent crime that is plaguing the city. The night before, postal workers attended a prayer vigil near the crime scene in the Burnside neighborhood where a USPS mail carrier was recently shot.
At around 11:35 a.m. on Sept. 10, a 24-year-old USPS mail carrier was shot four times during a drive-by shooting while on the job. Authorities don’t believe that the mail carrier was the intended target of the shooting.
According to WLS-TV, Chicago Fire Department officials said the woman was critically injured. She remains hospitalized because of the injuries suffered during the shooting.
Slowly but surely, thanks to the choking incompetence and neglect of Democratic mayors and city councils, the civil society continues to break down in our major cities.
Soon, the most basic services will be unavailable because the people who provide them will simply stop doing so in parts of cities where there is rampant lawlessness.
And when we reach that point, total collapse won’t be far behind.
