Chicago off to rough start.

Chicago police said that last year 51 people were murdered in January. So far in 2017, reports say at least 52 people have been murdered and about 300 people that were shot. The gun violence rates are slightly higher in the same time period than last year. Community activist Andrew Holmes said parents, preachers, and police need to do better when it comes to driving down the violence. Police also said gun arrests in Chicago in January 2017 were more than double what they were in January 2016. These type of statistics make me sick to my stomach. My city has been plagued by the violence coming from both sides of the law.
