    What good would that do, when the F.B.I leave Chicago, crime and shootings will continiue thoughout the city. It is up to the Chicago police to do the job that they are sworn to do for this city, instead of the federal goverment or outside law enforement for solutions for these kinds of problems that goes on around this city every day or night of the week.
