Chicago experiences a day without a murder or shooting

There were no shootings or murders on Wednesday January 18 in Chicago. This statement was released by Chicago Police Superintendent Garry McCarthy. He also said the last time Chicago experienced a day without a murder or shooting in a 24-hour period was nearly a year ago in early 2011. Supt. McCarthy suggests that the introduction of CompStat, a data driven approach to fighting crime and the reshuffling of officers to districts are some of the reasons that progress is being made in the war on crime. Others are skeptical and believe that the surprise frigid weather that hit Chicago just took people by surprise and it won’t be long when people will get accustomed to the cold weather and start pulling out their pistols again.
