From a WSL-TV Chicago report:
Chicago's rising murder rate in a new context, how the numbers of shooting deaths compare to the city's most notorious crime era, the one that has tarnished Chicago's reputation around the world for a century.
The surprising stats show the city is worse off now in the category of murder than at the height of the era that has driven Chicago's reputation for almost a century, Capone's "gangland" Chicago.
Much more here.
The soaring shooting deaths in the city of Chicago are despite some of the toughest gun laws in the nation offering further proof that gun laws do not reduce gun violence.
