"WOMEN HELP SLUG POLICE; BULLETS FLY," screamed the Chicago Daily Tribune headline on January 18, 1915. "Shots were fired, clothes torn, eyes blackened, and heads cracked while clubs, blackjacks and revolver butts were used with bruising effect on heads, arms and knuckles."
The event the paper was reporting was a march of 1,500 people -- men, women and children -- demanding relief from hunger and high levels of unemployment that were plaguing the city.
History repeats itself, unfortunately- God help us all...
