Tackling Chicago's 'crime gap'

March 14, 2014

NAAWP BOYCOTTS remain in EFFECT until further NOTICE!

A CITY full of PROGRESSIVE ENTITLEMENT LIFESTYLERS IMPLODES - even BEES know that in order for the HIVE to SURVIVE you must have 99.9% WORKER BEES!


• Despite "murder capital" headlines, most Chicago areas see few homicides
• A handful of areas on the South and West sides are to blame, and it's been like that for years
• One sociologist calls the disparity a "crime gap," and he fears it's only getting worse
(CNN)-- If you live in 60611, the swank Chicago neighborhood of Streeterville where Oprah Winfrey and actor Vince Vaughn have owned condos, you'd expect your neighborhood to be safe. The same holds true for 60654, where NBA star Dwayne Wade has owned a townhouse.
Together, these coveted zip codes had one murder in 2013, and it didn't even involve a resident. A Wisconsin couple died in an apparent murder-suicide at a downtown hotel.
But a few miles to the west or south, it's a different story.
Neighborhoods like Austin and Englewood -- poorer, less educated, predominantly African-American and infested with gangs -- have murder rates 10 times higher than other Chicago areas.
Despite recent headlines calling Chicago the "murder capital of the U.S.," homicides are rare in most of the city's neighborhoods. Instead, it's a small handful of areas that are to blame, and they've struggled for decades.
It's what one sociologist calls the "crime gap" -- and like the income gap and other markers of disparity in urban America, he worries it's only getting wider.
