CHICAGO — Forty-two people have been killed and 210 wounded so far in January, almost doubling last year’s numbers.It was the most violent January in years, according to DNAinfo Chicago data: In all, there were 199 shootings Jan. 1-25, while there were just 100 shootings over the same period last year.
The data doesn’t include the victims of violence from Tuesday into Wednesday, when three people were killed and another wounded.
Speaking as the guy next to you at the bar or in the beauty parlor if I frequented either, is there a “crackdown” on crime in the offing? Would the communities support it? Would authorities such as they are do it in face of objections?
Various presumptions in that series of qq, but they are legitimate . . .
