The ostensible purpose of the City of Chicago Sticker design is to honor first responders, but controversy has erupted after it was alleged that the design instead depicts gang signs. The stickers are just now about to go on sale and the cIty Clerk's office is left scrambling. The issue is a hot one given all the gang activity in neighborhoods like Uptown, Edgewater, Rogers Park and Andersonville.
The City Clerk says she is "investigating."
UPDATE: Late yesterday the City Clerk caved in to public pressure and criticism and announced that the city sticker design would be changed. We think it looks better than the old one.
