Pretty bad stats for a gun free zone city IMO.....N.Y City another gun free zone had 16 if I remember right...where is the outrage? Everyone of those people who died also had a story and a background...Furthermore I am willing to bet several were unarmed and killed for no other reason than being at the wrong place at the wrong time
Chicago gun violence has been a problem in recent years. The city has seen fewer gun related incidents this year but its hard to see the progress when 74 people get shot in a single weekend
I guess my question is DO people really care as much as is being reported, how much does the media influence WHAT people care about?
portraying black people as being so ignorant they are going to riot over this case?

- It was interesting to see how everything works (or doesn't work) in the justice system.
I wasn't emotionally invested.
