No shootings or murders in city for 24-hour period on Wednesday
Chicago Sun-Times ^ | January 19, 2012

Posted on 01/20/2012 9:04:24 PM PST by ConservativeStatement

Wednesday marked the first time since early 2011 that there were no shootings or murders in the city of Chicago in a 24-hour period, Police Supt. Garry McCarthy said in a statement released Thursday.

“On January 18, for a 24-hour period, there were no shootings and murders in the city of Chicago,” McCarthy said. “The last time we went a day without a murder or shooting was nearly a year ago in early 2011. This is clearly the result of the tremendous police work of the men and women of the Chicago Police Department.

Wow. How sad, we haven’t had a shooting or murder in a number of years where I live. Don’t think I’ll ever move to Chicago.

They are having a bad snowstorm right now. Maybe the youth gangs are huddled up with their girls tonight, not out in the streets doing God knows what.

And apparently that's what led to the last calm period. Now if they could only have snow storms every day their problems would be solved.

Have they checked the weather? Chicago got hit with a powerful winter storm.

Obviously, gun control is working.

Peace has descended on this blissful metropolis, mainly because community activism and street-level engagement has been so successful. Cleaning up what families were designed to do...

But wait, perhaps more can be done?

Most likely because it was freakin’ cold Wednesday.

In a way, it’s a little more disturbing to think that the difference between being shot and not being shot is the trouble it takes to remove a glove.

Rebellion is brewing!!

We should rebuild the grassroots conservative movement. From the Reagan Revolution of 1980 through the Contract with America in 1994, it was this movement from outside Washington that carried us to the first center-right majority governing coalition in more than 60 years.

The problem has not been with conservatism or with our voters.

The problem has been with Republican leaders who forgot who elected them and what values their supporters expected to see implemented in Washington.

Looks like things are back to what passes for normal in Chi-town:

23-year-old man killed at River North neighborhood Walgreens

(from the Chicago Tribune, 12:23 a.m. CST, January 21, 2012).

The full day lull in murders preceded the storm by two days. Chicago still is a rather dangerous place to be.

............................................................

One day without a murder being reported and they want to take credit for it.

Try waiting until you get a week without a call before taking credit Dum-dums.

One day is just a slump.

I don’t think there is a gun dealer in Chicago, so they must be getting them all at gun shows. Need to close the gun show loophole (whatever that is!)

This city and the state of Illinois should be the poster boys for gun control. No dealers, have to have an ID card to buy ammo, no concealed carry permits. Shouldn’t it be the safest city in the world?

Personally I drive around states where I can’t CCW. Actually it’s just easier to never go east of the Mississippi River

This is, no doubt, caused by the wonderful gun control laws of Chicago! Or, more likely, the thugs are waiting for another resupply batch of guns and ammo from Eric Holder's DoJ and the BATFE. In Chicago, crime marches on . . . and on . . . and on.

Not bad enough that this is the lead on the Tribune's website:

A 23-year-old man working as a security guard died after someone walked into the Walgreens on Chicago Avenue near Franklin Street and shot him about 10 p.m. Friday, police said.

That’s at the south end of the late, unlamented Cabrini-Green projects, and the original Mother Francis Cabrini “townhouse” projects are still there...I’d still consider that area pretty dicey at night.
