The saying goes: 95% or the shootings are in 5% of the neighborhoods. They are mostly in gang and drug infested neighborhoods on the south and west sides. The police have their hands tied and the laws are designed to protect the criminals. The city has a fund the police dept has coined the "Ghetto Lotto" where all a perp has to do is claim racism or harassment. The city will give them a grand or two in hush money to walk away. What a great way to supplement your drug dealing income. Rahm doesn't give a rats ass if they all kill each other as long as it doesn't infringe on the citys income. Here's one for you. How much the city cares about their first responders. Chicago no longer owns it's parking enforcement. Daley made a shady deal to sell the parking enforcement that went thru the financial institution his brother Bill was in charge of at the time. Anyway, City employees are required to pay their parking tickets or they lose their jobs. Guess which neighborhoods have more tickets written in them. Ain't the south and west sides. It's the handful of neighborhoods the police and firemen live.
