Murders more than doubled last month in Chicago compared to the same month last year, according to new data released by Chicago police.
Shootings also increased compared July 2019.
Still, police reported that overall crime in the city has decreased so far this year.
I think the police need to tighten up their ship quite a bit; but there’s better ways than violent protests. These protests for the most part have hurt the common people. I do think there are a number of good people involved in peaceful protests so it is the overall picture I’m looking at.
Petitions and things like that is how to change the law. The city council and mayor should have been on top of this previously. Perhaps the governors, state houses and senates too.
