Chicago shooting victims Last updated Dec. 30, 2015 The map [see the link, above] shows where people were shot in Chicago, broken down by community area. Darker shades of blue indicate greater numbers of victims in those community areas. This data is compiled from reporting done by the Chicago Tribune Breaking News staff and is typically updated more than once per week. Therefore, the most recent shootings may not be displayed immediately.

If Chicago could report  that large an increase in productivity,it would be one of the most prosperous communities in the nation ... instead of the deadliest.

Just saying.

Don't come down hard on Chicago. Their police force has shrunk by 25% over the past five years, (for budgetary reasons) and they have a very large and concentrated population of protected minorities to contend with. In addition a democrat political machine has controlled city and county government for the past 50 years.
