    Chicago has been labelled the world's most deadly city, based on statistics of murders per 100,000 people. Chicago leads with 19.2, beating out even deadly cities such as Sao Paulo and Mexico City. Is this a fair title for the Windy City?

    Community based values training in boys and girls clubs in the worst neighborhoods would be a good start.

    whew....sometimes when i read the news about chicago...its sounds like an alien place.....drive bys killing small kids etc...flash mobs robbing stores etc.

    what can be done? what will be done as urban decay grows in the inner cities...and people become more desperate...what you see now are a generation of youth that doesnt care...why should they...they know they are caught in a cycle....well many are too uneducated to even realize that

    How about handgun carry permits for law abiding citizens? ALthough I'll bet a lot of the issue is thug on thug crime.

    Take off and nuke them from orbit. It's the only way to be sure.
