Liberal Media Ignores Grim Chicago Murder Statistics, Could Be the Worst Since 2003

Hot Air [1] did a good summary on what the rising Chicago homicide statistics mean:

The reason is obvious and has been admitted openly by police officers… it’s the gangs. As we discussed back in July [2], the police have been thwarted in their efforts to deal with gang violence on a large scale and many of them are frustrated by the fact that the gang bangers not only act freely, but they have neither respect for nor fear of the cops. And with a population in some parts of the city which is too afraid of the gangs to speak out, community cooperation in finding and bringing in the bad guys is a missing piece of the puzzle.
