    I am sure that most people are not surprised to hear about this statistic. It just gets worse by the day. I am glad that I reside in South Florida, where we have no crime...:bounce:

    Police Say Chicago Homicides Climbed Dramatically in January
    By DON BABWIN, ASSOCIATED PRESS, CHICAGO — Feb 1, 2016, 1:41 PM ET

    Chicago police are reporting a dramatic spike in the number of homicides and shootings in the city's bloodiest January for at least 16 years. It's another blow to a department that has struggled to regain public trust following the damning release of a video showing a white officer fatally shooting a black teenager.

    In statistics released Monday, the Chicago Police Department reported there were 51 homicides last month compared to 29 in January of last year. Also, the number of shooting incidents and total shooting victims more than doubled; there 242 shooting incidents compared to 119 such incidents recorded in January 2015, and 292 shooting victims including the 51 who died, compared to 136 in the same month last year.

    Chicago has been a national symbol of gun violence since at least 2012, when the number of homicides climbed past the 500 mark, far higher than any other U.S. city. With the department initiating a number of crime-fighting measures and spending millions of dollars on police overtime, the city saw the total fall closer to 400 than 500 in each of the next two years, and 2014 ended with the fewest homicides in decades. But last year the number of homicides and shooting incidents rose yet again, and the bloodshed has continued this year.

    According to Obama, the reason for the huge gun violence numbers has nothing to do with Chicago, it's residents or the policies they have to curb gun rights. It's because mean Conservative adjacent-states do not have the vigorous laws Chicago has. And the criminal element from these nefarious places creeps into a peaceful place like Chicago, creating these terrible numbers.

    Quoting these numbers in regard to gun violence is racist. Talking about Chicago crime is racist if you don't live there. Let's just keep blaming everyone else and pretend our house isn't on fire.

    Simple solution, put NYC's gun laws in place there, bring in aggressive stop and frisk, problem solved.

    Pro-active policing came to a screeching halt after Ferguson, street stops are nearly non existent.

    When you make police the enemy, don't expect them to risk their lives or pensions.

    You have to ask how illegal guns are getting into the hands of the citizens of chicago.
