Bet the people who were killed in 2013 will be happy to hear this good news.

I feel bad for the Chicago area funeral directors who have fewer black gun shot victims to bury,

wonder if any of those homicides were investigated by Chicago police
or any of the cases actually solved? with people brought to justice?

Or were the police too busy writing parking tickets and scribbling up new absurd demands for the next union contract???

Based on poor results the Chicago police should take a 25 % pay cut until they clear up the back log of unsolved uninvestigated murder cases on their deck.

So based on this great GNUS it should take Chicago only nine years until blacks with unregistered unlicensed guns to stop killing other blacks with illegal guns and the police do nothing about it ??

so lets draw names to find out which blacks should be the ones killed by the other blacks with illegal guns. or do we have any volunteers ??

and how long will it take Chicago police to solve all those thousands of unsolved uninvestigated gun homicides?

How do Chicagoans put up with dysfunctional keystone cop crap??

what is wrong with this picture when a city accepts the murder of other citizens and does nothing about it??????

Al notso Sharpton, Jessie fillmypockets Jackson, obozo are silent on this issue and the silent is deafening.
