Barack Obama’s neighbourhood in Chicago has been turned into a virtual fortress as the Secret Service moves to protect the President-elect.

Assassination fears mean that Mr Obama, who was codenamed “Renegade” by his Secret Service detail on the campaign trail, will become perhaps the most heavily guarded president in history. Streets around his mock-Georgian mansion in the usually easy-going enclave by the University of Chicago have been closed. The main thoroughfare has been shut down because it passes his garden.

Don’t expect this to get any better.  This is going to spread as obama beings his marxist rule in this country..and he’ll have the congress behind him 100%
