    Chicago police sergeant: "Tribal warfare" on the streets

    Chicago police sergeant: "Tribal warfare" on the streets - CBS News

    (CBS News) CHICAGO - Chicago is in the grips of a deadly gang war. At least 275 people have been killed in the city so far this year and many more have been shot, many of them innocent bystanders to the gang violence. Among the latest victims were 12- and 13-year-old girls shot Tuesday night. They survived.


    Sgt. Matt Little leads one of the teams in Chicago's Gang Enforcement Unit. There are about 200 such officers in the city-- versus 100,000 gang members.


    "Almost all the violence we're seeing now is from the gangs," Little said. "When there's a shooting we'll respond to the shooting. We'll figure out where we believe the most likely area for retaliation is and we'll work that area trying to both prevent retaliation and possibly build a case on offenders."

    Perhaps they should just be issued better weapons.

    Chicago and other cities are doing the gun buybacks. But this problem has been going on in the USA well before Obama.
    take out the partisan politics and it is a sad play acted out daily. It has been going on with humans for millinea. Some humans are just wild and show no humanity just inhumanity.

    Chicago has long been a cesspool of gangs. This is nothing new but it is getting worse. Why?? Perhaps because the powers that be keep trying to take the guns away...........the only ones without guns now are the very ones that need them for protection.

    Rahm Emanuel thinks you can just ask the gangs to quit and they'll stop. :lol: They need an all out swat team numbering in the thousands to regain control. They can't though, there isn't enough money to pay them, it's all being spent on Public Sector retirements. ;)

    O'Reilly interviewed a black pastor last night. All the usual excuses were given. What they want is "more money" to solve the problem. Like that's ever worked before. huh?

    It has become cool to have been jail. The puinishment is not really that severe. YOu get free room and board, a play ground and weigt room, free medical, free legal advise and all you have to do is going out on the streets and kill or harm some body you don't know. Make prison a really bad place to be and that would change but the libs want to be nice to everybody. You have to earn nice, it is not a given.
