EDIT: SEEMS LIKE CRIME IS ACTUALLY GOING UP

Apparently everything from gun violence to gang activity are all on the rise in Chicago, and it pretty much doubled since this time last year. Some reports are saying that you have many officers simply not responding, and others are saying that with the introduction of the new police chief and his mandates officers are required to do less. So its really just arrests/policing decline.
Every news source from NPR, Forbes, WP, USAToday, ABC, NYPost, CBS etc have some recent report on the spike.
