    "“One of the ways Chicago is different is that our social conditions are not anything like those now in New York City and Los Angeles,” Jens Ludwig, director of the Crime Lab, told a City Club audience early this year. “We are not just the most segregated city in America, but the level of concentrated poverty we have in our neighborhoods is unlike anything in Los Angeles or New York. You would not find an Englewood or Garfield Park anywhere in Los Angeles and New York.”

    The dynamics at play, the ones Chicagoans want to understand to end the bloodshed, are complex. Gang life is a substitute for hope in isolated neighborhoods. Every shooting invites a retaliatory attack. In a city of 2.7 million people, a relatively small number of criminals — perhaps 5,000 to 10,000 thugs and drug dealers — are driving a large share of the violence. “It’s the same individuals that continuously commit these crimes,” Chicago Police Department Superintendent Eddie Johnson said.

    One positive development is this year’s 20 percent decline in the number of homicides and shooting incidents. New CPD crime-fighting tactics, based in part on U. of C. Crime Lab data, get some credit. But so much more has to be done to stop the shooting, punish offenders and save neighborhoods."

    eight years of "hope and change" and nothing's changed?

    There are avowed racists, and then there are racists who pretend they're not, by using euphemisms and weasel words.

    It's clear who you mean by "this."

    You might as well just own up to the obvious.
