The numbers tell the story. Via CBS2 Chicago:
CHICAGO (CBS) - An estimated 123 people were shot and killed over the summer. That's nearly double the number of soldiers killed in Iraq over the same time period.
Yes, yes statisticians, there is a difference in the murder rate of a city with a population just under 3,000,000 and soldiers on patrol or engaged in combat.
The murders are concentrated in certain districts of Chicago, notably those on the South Side, which Barack Obama represented in the State Senate. Obama's community organizing in Woodlawn (he worked for a Woodlawn group) doesn't seem to have left a legacy of peace among the communards. In fact, the violence may be worse now than before Obama invaded from New York.
Who intervened and left a bigger and bloodier fiasco? George Bush in Iraq or Barack Obama in the Southside?
