"Why Are There So Many Murders in Chicago?"

The author doesn't know and I don't either. But it sounds like a good graduate research paper for someone.

Speaking of Chicago, in case you missed this recent development from a Progressive-Run Paradise: "Chicago Cops: Meh, Burglaries and Car Thefts Will Just Have to Wait".

Too many murderers live there?

Briefly, the problem is the existence of an antisocial, misanthropic culture which glorifies crime, criminals and single-parent families, and degrades good school performance, reporting on and testifying against criminal conduct ("snitching") to persons and property, and a positive work ethic ("you're a chump to work at McDonalds"). This culture just happens to be particularly strong in Chicago; it exists within every urban community.
