Gangs and guns: stopping Chicago’s revenge killings | Unreported World
I have cousins nieces and nephews all grew up in Chicago. I’ve been there before visiting many years ago but even many years ago it was off the hook I stayed a week, was offered to stay for a couple of months three months in the summer, I left after a week.
Gang culture in Chicago has turned the city into America’s murder capital – but only 25% of murders there are actually solved. The violence has now become so extreme people are actively living in trauma. Unreported World meets the rival gangs and the individuals trying to ‘interrupt’ this pattern of violence and killings.
