    CHICAGO (AP) - Police planned to increase patrols and put SWAT officers and specialized units on the streets over the weekend, a show of force aimed at deterring violence like the three dozen shootings that left nine people dead last weekend.

    "Weather permitting, we will have our helicopter up," said police spokeswoman Monique Bond, who said Thursday night was relatively quiet, with only four shootings, none fatal.

    Meanwhile, religious leaders said they had persuaded some churches to open their doors in the afternoons and evenings to protect people from gunfire.

    It's not safe, too violent, and people are dying. We should be pulling out right now. Where's Cindy the Peace Mom Sheehan when you need her? Where's Code Pinko?

    Ya I notice this recession hasn't effected the gangs any. I wonder what their unemployment level is at? probably 0 percent since all ya do is kill someone to take their job.

    There was actually another thread where someone said, "So we should pull out of Chicago?" When discussing the danger ratio between Iraq and the U.S. I find it humorous. :cool:

    America's highest homicide rate was in Washington, D.C., which had a rate of 35.4 per 100,000 in 2005. According to estimates based on Brookings Institution data, Baghdad's violent death rate around that time was about 238 per 100,000 people.

    First you ASSUME I am minimizing our troops death rate in this section:

    Then you go on to minimize the destruction that is going on in our own backyard? Your a hypocrite! Furthermore I say you dont give a shit about what is going on in America. I guess 35.4 is too low for you?

    I was responding to this; I forgot to quote it:
    I find the murder rate here alarming, and the murder rate in Baghdad, which is 6.7 times higher than DC, alarming as well.
