As highlighted in Moguldum Studios’ Gunland documentary, the gun and gang violence that has gripped the Chicago streets continues to play out as a harrowing tale of despair. Although Mayor Rahm Emanuel and top officials have promised to slow the carnage, victims of gun violence continue to mount at high numbers.
Just this past Easter Weekend alone, eight people were killed and around 44 wounded in a spate of shootings. No matter the numbers, any shooting involving multiple victims would be the cause of worry for any compassionate person.
