      Were you planning on doing drugs or participating in gang activity while you were visiting??? I'd be worried then.

      Great that's one less suburb urbanite clogging the roadways looking up at all the tall buildings with your blinker on and stick family on the back window! Don't worry Garret's will still be open next time!

      By that standard, why live in the USA with the highest firearms murder rate….15000 people last year compared to 8 in the UK. No one is safe in America by your logic. I've lived in Chicago 22 years btw and haven't been shot yet.

        I'm more afraid in the southeast, where you might get shot for being a "yankee" or something other than caucasian. (P.S. Lived in Chicago for 40 years)

        Truth is all these shootings are happening on the South and West sides of town where high gang and drug activity occur. If you live in the north, or near downtown, or in any of the nice neighborhoods of my city, you don't have to fear being shot. Not that bad things don't happen on occasion like in any town or city in the USA, but yeah you are a wee bit misinformed by the one sided slant of the media. And of course you have to be smart like in any city and not stupid. Bring your wife and stay in the nice areas and don't walk around with your iphone in plain site and you will have a safe, fun, enjoyable time.

    Thugs killings other thugs should not be as serious a crime as crime against normal people. Its actually a net socially positive thing for one thug to kill another isn't it? I know that seems a bit harsh, but nature is harsh, life is not fair and maybe people would think twice about becoming thugs if they knew they would lose some protection.

    These types of things happen ALL THE TIME IN EVERY CITY. Whatever the case may be , you are noticing it more now because of recent "events" covered by the media or the media has just heightened the coverage on any and every type of anything involving a gun. Open your eyes people. We don't need more patrolling. Don't you see what this all is?

    I have lived in this city for 60 years and have never seen all the gun fire that goes on. The young children are ruthless and are getting worse everyday. It is not just the Westside and the Southside. Killings are in every area. Some are just not reported. Chicago is a beautiful city. If the suburanites don't like the publicity of the Chicagoans, don't come to the city. I am pretty sure we can do without you. You will never know when widespread crime will come to your area. So be QUIET!!!!!!
