Chicago Still Has a Problem

Fewer murders in August, police said Murders are up 14.7 percent year-to-date, over the same period last year, but there were fewer in August than in July. So Chicago Police are happy. (or at least shoveling with both hands.)

All the stupid gun-control, and they can't seem to do anything about this number.
The dismantling of gang hierarchy by police and the increased friction between smaller gang factions have contributed to the rise in crime and murder totals, police told the Defender earlier this month.
Sorry but is this excuse supposed to make people feel good, or bad about life in Chicago? It sounds a little like, "Police action contributes to chaos on our streets." But then, I'm cynical as hell.
