Thin blue line
Yes, it’s as bad as it sounds
A brief reprieve, but far better than the alternative
Would *you* want to move there?
Improving, but still very bad
No matter how it happened, job well done
Sort of a good news, bad news report
A somber, annual ritual in Charm City
Can you hear me now?
But signs of hope persist
Hey, it’s worth a try
Why worry about that?
“a city-wide 72-hour ceasefire that began midnight Thursday”
Unsafe at any speed
An ill wind blows no good in the Windy City
You don’t want *all* your statistics going up
Isn’t this Rahm Emanuel’s problem?
“I have a lot of concern about that many cities experiencing those increases in violence.”
Hard to stop the killing rate without catching the killers
“half of the increase came from just seven cities…”
A new high and a devastating new low at the same time. When will the gang violence problem be addressed?
Based on the number of deaths this puts most natural disasters to shame
“Motorists speak matter-of-factly of spotting body parts along roadways.”
Not a subject for polite company, apparently
“We’re Number One!”
Fake but inaccurate, at least in the details
How’s that working out for ya?
Yeah… that was the problem.
Not a relaxing weekend
An armed society is indeed a less murderous society
“Do you want to take it off of anything?”
Might want to get used to it
“We moved away from that term years ago at the league.”
