New Juarez

Has anyone followed the Drudge linked stories on Chicago? Like Bloody Weekend: 8 Dead, Dozens Wounded:
At least eight people were killed and some two dozen others were wounded over the [July 4th] weekend. Four of the victims lost their lives during a bloody six hours late Saturday and early Sunday.
In a different story a doctor at a single Chicago hospital said that they "see probably an average of between 10 and 15 people who get shot or stabbed every night".

The makeup of the troubled areas, victims and perpetrators is pretty predictable; but still, have they just given up on policing and locking up criminals?
