A Sign of the Times in Chicago: Bulletproof SubwaysPosted: April 25, 2014 | |
Savini was struck by the fact that the counter of the store at 116th Street and South Halsted was encased in bullet-proof glass.
Such a sight would be common at crime magnets like gas stations or currency exchanges, but a Subway?
The store was clean and looked just like any other well-run Subway restaurant, except for the bullet-proof protection for the employees and lack of a bathroom for customers.

In fact, a few patrons asked for hand sanitizer because they couldn’t wash their hands.
Savini took a few photos and sent out a tweet, saying the scene was a sad depiction of gun violence in Chicago:
