Their marksmanship is improving slightly. They actually got a kill ration of a little over 20 percent. Those boys couldn't hit a barn door from inside the damn barn!

"Trump is right on crime. If Chicago police and cops nation wide cannot do their jobs the way they know how, the murders in these Democrat mayor-led cities will unfortunately continue. There are some innocent women and kids caught in the crossfire." ---David Clarke, 28 May 2018

Republican mayors couldn't do any better if they were running cities like Chicago. No use trying. Might as well build a wall around 'em like the Israelis built around Gaza and let 'em go at it among themselves.
