One man, accused of a trio of weapons violations, remains the only person charged in connection with the carnage wrought three weeks ago in Chicago, when 75 people were shot -- 12 fatally -- during the city's bloodiest weekend of the year.
Rick Franklin, 27, was arrested Aug. 4, and charged with three felony weapons charges, including aggravated unlawful use of a weapon. The offenses were linked to Franklin due to the latest technology being monitored by police and civilian analysts, the Chicago Tribune reported.
After Franklin allegedly fired a gun near an intersection, the shots were detected by acoustic sensors in the area, and an alert was soon sent to a monitoring center more than a mile away. Cops then immediately used surveillance cameras at the intersection to track down a blue Ford Focus seen fleeing the scene, officials said.

Because people in Chicago want this behavior to increase.
It’s against the law to charge “people of color” .
How do you figure?
Just as enforced taxes penalize and curb the behavior for which they are applied, enforced laws penalize and curb unlawful actions.
Failing to enforce laws causes the behavior to increase.
Year ain't over yet.
IIRC, cops have to get permission to make arrests. If so, folks should blame the DA’s office, not the beat cops.
“No sir, killing a gang member in this State is an $18 fine, you can mail it in.”
I forgot....you are correct.
Was it a Russian Hacker?
If the police get out of their car, they are going to be accused of racism no matter what they do. The ACLU now has official status within the police dept. by order of a judge. The police have to submit the contact reports they fill out when they talk to anyone on the street to the ACLU for review. Very hard to do any real police work anymore.
I'd bet that the cops aren't anxious to go door to door in those neighborhoods to get the evidence on gangbangers and other lowlifes.
Is Rahm planning on running for re-election, or having burnished his dem credentials as a total incompetent, is he aiming for higher office?
Don’t 60% of Chiraq’s homocides go unsolved? Lotta murderers runnin’ around.
"...acoustic gunfire sensor..."
They only solved %17 last year.
Because in the ‘hoods, they hate the po-po more than they do the gang banging thugs.
Every time I read a Chicago violence headline, the overwhelming reaction I have is “who cares?”
More laws would be the answer (extreme sarcasm).
Ouch. I guess random murders make it hard to pin down a firm motive, other than drug turf wars.
