They See. That's About All...

'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.
