Chicago is a war zone. The report leaves out two very salient points about each assailant and victim: their race and gang affiliation. How much of this weekends carnage was gang related? PC reporting requires that we suspend reasoning and that’s illogical.

Also of note is how strict gun control laws are in Chicago.
