    DUH! Mayor won't allow the police to do what will reduce major crime - get the petty criminals off the streets before they "graduate" to the bigger stuff. And the people most afflicted by the high murder rate loathe the police while fearing the thugs; many/most refuse to cooperate with murder investigations that would get the murderers off the streets. So this is a problem whose long-term solutions are precluded by pretty much the whole of Chicago.

    The Democrats want blacks to kill each other, apparently. All the Republicans want is for them to find a job.

    If I recall the last Republican mayor was Big Bill Thompson in the early 1900's. And had a ton of mob connections so he was probably worthless too.

    Chicago is one blood-soaked city, isn't it.
