Chicago has deadliest start to a year in nearly 2 decades


 

RT America | March 2, 2016

More than 100 people died violently in Chicago at the beginning of 2016, making it the deadliest kick off to a year since the late 1990s. Gang violence fueled by social media and lax sentencing guidelines for gun arrests are being blamed by officials for the uptick, however the shutting down of schools and high unemployment rates are being pointed to by scholars as the cause, as RT America’s Ashlee Banks reports.
