The article I saw said 2 kids shot at a baby shower. Was there another, separate incident? What bothers me is that the police are quoted as saying they have very little information, as witnesses are refusing to cooperate. That says to me that the gang presence is either so strong that people are afraid, or there's a retaliatory mindset in place - they'll exact their own revenge / retribution...or both, I suppose...
Were there really 561 homicides in Chicago last year? Wow...
For example: Bobby Rush just called the CPD the sworn enemy of black people. Huzzah
Why the fixation on Chicago? Latest stats have their murder rate 24th in the country.
I can give you leeway based on proximity. It is the rest of the GOP I wonder about.
I care because I live here.
Rate, what about gross homicides?
I take exception to the rest of the GOP comment
