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.

The full day lull in murders preceded the storm by two days. Chicago still is a rather dangerous place to be.
This really ought to have been “Pharmacist shoots deranged gunman.” If it were a sane world.
And not because of any politicians efforts
This is clearly the result of the tremendous police work of the men and women of the Chicago Police Department.
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.
Just how bad is it snowing there anyway?

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
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.
