"While Chicago continues to see reductions in crime and violence, there's obviously much more work to be done and we continue to be challenged by lax state and federal gun laws," Chicago Police spokesman Adam Collins said in a statement.When the laws were 'stricter', crime was higher. They're having problems getting their stories straight:
"This week was a bad week," Chicago Police Superintendent Garry McCarthy said. "We've identified a number of gang factions that are now in conflict with each other that sparked up some of this violence. We are taking steps to intervene."Maybe McCarthy needs to vent some frustration on more innocent streetlights. They're going to blame anything and anyone they can but it boils down to two things. Violent criminals and and incompetent leadership of the CPD.
