Chicago's Deadly Streets - An Incredible Report From ABC7

WLS TV reporter Chuck Goudie filed this stunning video on May 5. He spent a night prowling the streets of Chicago's Gresham police district, 10 miles due south of Chicago's Loop to see just how dangerous the hood really is. Mayor Richard Daley must hate this report. As Goudy noted in his report, "And despite Mayor Daley's disquieting photo op last week, his own police department's statistics show that in 2008, 77 percent of all city murders were committed with handguns that are already banned."

Goudie also wrote, "One hundred and twenty four people have been killed so far in 2010 - one per day - nearly the number of Americans killed during the same period in Iraq and Afghanistan combined." Nice work, Mayor Daley. Good job, Supt. Weis.
