'Cameras make Chicago most closely watched US city'
And all those cameras sure pay off.
Chicago saw 41 people shot in 50 hours last week, including brazen shootings near a police press conference and another in front of three dozen officers. In Los Angeles, killings were down this year until 19 people were slain over a span of 11 days. And in New York, crime is up by a startling percentage.
So don't worry.
After you've been mugged and murdered in Chicago there's a good chance the perpetrator will be identified, prosecuted and sentenced to, what, 8 years -serving less than than 18 months.
