Chicago: Another Day, Another 21 Victims

posted on March 19, 2016

Last week, we documented a 20-hour span of violence in Chicago that resulted in 21 victims, including two fatalities. With city leaders unwilling to honestly address the issue, there is no reason to believe the unfettered bloodshed won’t continue. And Thursday proved to be nearly an exact replica of last week—21 more wounded, one fatally.

While lives are being lost at astounding rates in the Windy City, politicians are doing little more than living up their city’s nickname by blowing a lot of hot air. So Frank Miniter, in his continuing series on Chicago, asks whether Obama’s Department of Justice is too political to tackle the problem. 

With Chicago ranking as the murder capital of the U.S., the city still clocks in at 82nd out of 90 federal districts in prosecution. Is the fear of being seen as racially biased affecting the prosecution rate? Read Miniter’s full article here.
