Chicago spends $95 million in police overtime to artificially reduce homicides by 12, the 'lowest number on record' for 2014
327 MORE people were shot in the city during the same period.
New Years Day saw 9 people shot in the city, most of which have some variation or association w/ this phrase "A source said the man is a documented gang member."
I can't do a review on the Illinois Uniform Crime Report because the ISP has spent years trying to 'upgrade' it to FBI standards and haven't released one even for 2013 yet.
The Illinois pension system is $80 BILLION in the hole while the total state debt is over $320b and rising while the legislature is doing everything they can to make the state a hostile environment to businesses large and small.
What a wonderful place we live in.
