Less than 3 weeks into this new year, Chicago has had 2.4 times more people shot than in 2015. Sadly, 29 of those 195 shooting victims lost their lives. What is more disturbing, is this graphic which reflects the race of those murdered through January 20th:
Obviously, President Obama's focus is on cops killing unarmed blacks. The emphasis on that as the primary problem in our major cities, has put hundreds of people in Chicago at a greater risk of being shot or killed. As long as police feel that they are under a microscope, they will be reluctant to more aggressively confront these situations, especially those involving Blacks. Tragically, gun violence will continue to spin out of control.
