Must have been a good shot to hit him six times in the groin.

Honestly, I can't imagine living in such a place, Chicago or otherwise.

Politics aside, and whomever everyone thinks can 'fix' or 'change' this.........it's been a mess, to say the least, for many years.  When people who are no good do not want things to change, that power trip can be as strong as the one everyone else is on claiming so and so should have done this or that and so and so will do this and that to clean it up.

Good luck with that.

I would guess he was a witness, but hard to say. Or there were concerns he'd try to cut a deal by sharing info about others.

I hate when all of Chicago gets labeled.

There are terrible parts of the city, and there are very, very nice and safe areas of the city.

I loved the years we lived in Chicago. It is a very fun and interesting city.

There are criminals in every large city....and in small towns too.

Well I live here now. And guess what? Chicago stands alone. I mean, look at those super strict gun laws. Have you looked at 2017's murder and shooting statistics compared to other large cities? How about 2016? 2015?
