Chicago: Murders Exceed Los Angeles & New York Combined ... Chicago’s gangs “no longer know or fear the police”
8/31/2016, Chicago is wrapping up its most deadly month on record since the mid-90s, with more than 480 people shot and 78 dead, almost all of them ascribed to gang violence. The total number of murders for the year is nearing 500 – well on track for a record – and there’s still a full four months to go.
This grim milestone adds up to more murders than New York City and Los Angeles combined. We’ve pretty much run out of awful adjectives to describe what’s going on in the 'windy city.' The Harrison District on the West Side, for example, has had almost 400 people shot this year after logging 350 all of last year. Englewood saw 330 people shot all of last year and has tallied close to 300 this year. more
Strict Gun Laws in Chicago
Gang members in Chicago face worse sanctions from their gangs for losing a gun than they do by the courts for illegally possessing one.
