‘Not every homicide in Chicago is gang-related, man’

So far this year, 379 people have been murdered in Chicago. And thousands more have survived gunshot wounds. “While those numbers are lower than 2012,” the Huffington Post writes, “the threat of gang violence remains a fact of life for those who live in the city.”
Is beefed up policing of gangs the cure to violence in Chicago? Or is the HuffPo’s notion that street gangs are at the root of Chicago’s violence problems too simplistic a diagnosis? The Chicago Reporter’s Angela Caputo will jump into an on-line debate exploring those questions this morning at 11 a.m. Central on a Google Hangout.
