Daley rejects calls for more cops at Wrigley

Mayor Daley says this:
"One person was at the game. The shooters were not at the game. It had nothing to do with the game. This is at 6:30 at night. It could happen in Lake Forest or Highland Park. It could happen in Mount Prospect. It could happen any place. It has nothing to do with baseball," Daley said.

But the police said this:
According to police, Hernandez's brother hit Caballero's friend on the head with a souvenir baseball bat. Caballero then allegedly got out of the SUV and shot Hernandez, a graduate of Kennedy High School and Daley College. A 9mm handgun was later found in the SUV. Caballero has been charged with first-degree murder.

Clearly there's only one thing to do:

Ban souvenir baseball bats. This way, fights between fans will not escalate into shootings.
