Attack with a gun is a misdemeanor in Chicago

Domestic abuse victims suffer silently, alone :: CHICAGO SUN-TIMES :: Mary Mitchell A general story of domestic violence, but what caught my attention was reference to a story that I covered earlier.

A woman was a victim of domestic violence, and when the train she worked on was shot at, she was reassigned and her income cut substantially. She has been shot at, she has had acid thrown at her. Her ex has been charged with a misdemeanor. True he didn't shoot; he arranged to have someone else do that. Conspiracy to commit murder is a misdemeanor? Some justice.

Domestic violence doesn't seem to get the same level of attention as other crimes.
