    228 dead: That's the number of murders this year in Chicago.

    June 12, 2012 7:10 PM

    (CBS News) There are 228 dead: That's the number of murders this year in Chicago. It's nearly twice as many as the number of Americans lost on the battlefields of Afghanistan over these last six months. And the number of deaths is up 35 percent over the same period last year.

    There was a time it was called "gangland" Chicago and maybe that time has returned.

    Chicago teen on living amid violence: "I don't expect to have a future here"

    The cops tell us it's the gang members who have turned some neighborhoods into free-fire zones. More people were cut down today.


    Across Chicago, nine people were killed between Friday and Sunday, and two more were gunned down just hours ago - a murder rate of two a day.

    Video News report at the link.

    I guess the bangers didn't get the memo that guns are illegal in Chitown!

    I sure Mayor Rahm will focus like a laser and have this cleaned up in no time.

    years back Hartford was on target for one a week through nov when the politico finally decided that .....this looks bad.....and initiated all kinds of studies

    i think they were successful at keeping the year under 52---they stationed ambulances at the 'centers of conflict' so the injured would get faster service to the hospital
    ...thats one way to patch the problem i guess

    but Detroits gonna need a lot more ambulances and a lot more shovels

    This is the site I use to keep track of my hometown Chicago and its murders: Red Eye

    It's really easy to download as an excel file and sort based on weapon... mostly gunshots, of course... in a city where every handgun has to be registered and no law abiding citizen can carry locked and loaded...

    + 1 for the cops figuring it out that it's gang members who have turned neighborhoods into free fire zones! Now, what's Chicago's plan to enforce their anti gun laws in those neighborhoods?

    Chicago is a prime example of "if guns are outlawed, only outlaws will have guns". But, naturally, the mayor and the other bleeding heart crooked politicians in that cesspool of a city don't "get it"!

    Hopefully the majority of the 228 were the bad guys.

    While driving on the Kennedy into downtown last Friday I saw a billboard calling for more police. It was near the Morton Salt factory.

    We need pro gun groups to rent out these billboards for CC.

    It doesn't matter how many cops Chicago has... their purpose is to investigate crime that has already occurred. It is incumbent on the civilian to defend himself...

    That said, most (not all by any stretch) of the gun crime in Chicago is gang related, and happens in "bad" hoods... criminal on criminal. But it's summertime and they're spreading out from the 'hoods and into the civilized parts of town...

    And when those last seconds of your precious life count, the cops are still only minutes away... no matter how many of them there are.
