The want to say shootings are down from 2014 but there is violence everywhere.
Even my safe family neighborhood (Mayor Daley's former neighborhood) that has very few bars and 2 murders in the past year has had 7 robberies in the past month.
I'm at the point where I am incredibly defensive and dismissive of criticism from anyone who doesn't live in Chicago. The laugh at opinions from their ideas on morality or research (it's called broken window theory and it is nothing new) or wanting to advance their ideas about gun control and I roll my eyes about complaints from people in the suburbs. I understand rolling my eyes at the problems of others isn't right based on Chicago problems > suburb problems but it's hard to listen with a straight face.
