Chicago isn’t safe.
We’ve said this for at least a couple of years now, recommending that gun owners and their families avoid Chicago because of the rampant violent crime – even in areas of the city formerly believed to be “safe”.
How bad has it gotten?
This fall, Chicago Fire Department members will be required to provide overwatch for kiddies walking to schools.
And even today, it’s out of control… it’s bad enough that criminals are brazen enough to pull an armed robber across the street from a police station!
Chicago (Tribune) – A convenience store across the street from the Rogers Park police station was held up at gunpoint overnight, police said.
The robber entered the store, pulled a gun and demanded money from a clerk standing at the register in the 6500 block of North Clark Street around 11:25 p.m. Sunday, according to Police News Affairs Officer Jose Estrada.
…Estrada described the robber as a black man, about 6 feet tall, wearing a black hoodie and black jeans. He appeared to be about 30 years old and weighed 160 pounds.
