    This is extremely sad.. I live in a big city (10M+) and it’s a shock if we exceed 70 murders a YEAR. Last summer we had what we called the season of the gun because 32 people were shot in 22 days and THAT statistic caused a massive inquiry into our city’s police department…. Chicago needs to get it together…

    For comparison: Hong Kong has 7 million people and a very high population density. 2012 there have been 27 homicides in the whole year.

    Obviously the CPD needs help call in the national guard and do the stop and frisk like NY for 6 months. The gang bangers don’t leave their guns at home so if you stop them that’s another gun off the street and reduction in crime.Build the jails and they will come!!!
