For years Chicago has been the city to point to whenever anyone wanted to make a statement about Black on Black crime and gun violence. We may finally be seeing some changes as Chicago has reached drop in gin violence over the past 15 months.
Chicago has had 52 fewer shootings and 229 fewer murders through the end of May, according to MSN news.
This is a 21% drop off when compared to the first five months of 2017.
Chicago has been under much scrutiny and rightfully so by President Trump. The murder rate in Chicago has been rivaled only by warzones like what we saw in Iraq in the early 2000's.
Some gangsters maybe proud of it, but destroying a city is nothing to be proud of and damn sure isn't something anybody should want to represent.
Hopefully, we will continue to see a decrease in homicides and the city will no longer need the title of Chiraq.
