Has Chicago gone Buckwild?

The other day I was driving and listening to the DL Hugeley radio show. They were discussing the violence going on in Chicago and they refered they called the Windy City, Chiraq. I immediately understood the reference but when I got home I Googled it and found out that this term is a common term in the community. So has Chicago truly become as dangerous as Iraq? We all saw the shooting at the basketball part and how 13 people were wounded but is the entire city like this? The answer is no. There are parts of the city that are not affected by this kind of senseless violence. How can this be possible? This kind of behavior would not be tolerated on the Gold Coast? No one would dare to simply start shooting people on the “Magnificent Mile”, and if they did I guarantee you they would be caught and convicted. I hear people say the people in the community won’t help themselves well what should they do? Should they strap up and literally fight fire with fire. should they form vigilante groups and patrol the neighborhoods? Come on people if the police can’t handle it then they should take up the governor’s offer and call in the troops. The people need help. the answer is not more bars on the windows and locks on the doors. Chicago can do better and Chicagoans deserve more.
