It happens every weekend but no one seems to care: "8 people killed, 25 wounded in bloody weekend in Chicago".
It happened on the heels of a conflict of words between the police union and Mayor Emanuel.
Many fear that the violence and shootings will increase with summer on its way.
By the way: "In December 2017, the U.S. Census Bureau released data confirming Illinois had dropped below Pennsylvania as the sixth most populous state in the country, due to four consecutive years of population decline. Even more troubling was the fact that Illinois’ population loss was primarily driven by Illinoisans relocating to other states at the rate of 1 person every 4.6 minutes."
That's a lot of people and taxes heading out!
