    Working with the community is so much more effective than trying to work over it.

    • @Cenk Uygur Donald dump has done jack shitte for Chicago wtf you smoking

    • @Geralt Rivia I’m quite serious, this is well known throughout law enforcement communities. Several large law enforcement departments under report crimes. For example homicides aren’t reported as such due to the criteria they use. Your can read more about with a simple search on the topic. Check out Chicago Magazine “The Truth About Chicagoโ€™s
      Crime Rates: Part 2

      Murder makes the headlines, but crimes like
      theft and assault are far more common in
      Chicagoโ€”and your chances of being a victim
      may be higher than the police are telling you.

      I don’t think cops don’t care about communities. I think corrupt politicians care about their image to get reelected and they lie about the actual crime statistics in order to provide a facade that they are tough / effective on crime, by manipulating data.

    • @First Last Of course theft and assault are more common than what’s reported. If police reported every little instance of domestic violence or assault that occurs, the numbers would be staggering.
      It’s human to get angry. Reporting for serious crimes is another story as there are laws about that.
      I really don’t buy this narrative that they are hiding double digits serious crime rates, it’s ridiculous.

    • Having a job makes a difference good thing Donald Trump is focused on building up the economy

    • @William Parks The clocks running down on that one.

    It’s cause they have begun holding teens accountable and not letting then walk away from Crimes.

    • Dadson worldwide and now if we can lock those criminals up in places like West Virginia and the Dakotaโ€™s we can get a hold on the opioid crisis!!

    • cnn fredo fake news and enemy of the people, she told the police to stand down, they re not reporting crime, so it makes it seem like less crime, she lies to you and begs people to come back to Chicago because people are leaving due to high crime ans new taxes,

    • A Team how can you not report a murder? Violent crimes have victims. You were trying to sound smart but ended looking dumb.

    • @Joel Vance NOT all violent crimes involved a murder… Like ALL democrat mayors…
      She along with the city council have told the police chief to have police stand down…
      If cases aren’t being investigated or prosecuted… LESS crime recorded
      THEN LESS crime statistics…

    • Resident Evil I didnโ€™t say all but violent crimes has a victim like rape or assault. The US have more incarcerated people than anywhere on earth. This is beyond D&R. But if you are going to blame democrats for high crime you should hold republicans equally as harsh considering 8 out of the 10 poorest and least educated states are red states.

  3. More work and housing. If someone is concentrating on jobs and home, they care more about the community. THAT is the power of a strong capitalist society.

  5. Chicago should in Rehabilitation and zero recidivism rates. Prisons and Jails need to be held accountable.

    Yes. Using every technical advantage to keep Chicago safe is an excellent start. And connecting with the citizens in every community helps crime . Preventing and solving.
    Itโ€™s great to see Mayor Lightfoot doing things to help stop, keep down and fight crime in Chicago.

  7. Im guessing it wasnt a border wall. lololololol

    • BB, rap music is the propaganda that encourages black America to act in a threatening manner and scare away employment opportunities thus creating vast oceans of intergenerationally learners helplessness. Hollywood and fake media own black America until they wake up and reject the poison. Curse music ain’t called curse music for no reason!

    • Jeremy, rap music is the weapon! Stop listening to it or face eternity living around low employment opportunity pretending you don’t understand! Rap music is slave music because it teaches black America to act in a threatening manner: Hollywood and fake media own you until you reject the poison!

    • Has Chicago stopped listening to rap music?

    • The wall wasnt designed against criminal citizens in amercia its against illegal immigration

    • @Monsieur LaFlamme Don’t you mean Israel?

    HAPPY NEW YEAR!
    Congratulations, Madam Mayor!
    (Now, beware that Trump will take credit for it. Donโ€™t allow him!)

  12. Yessssssss mayor now letโ€™s get her here to Baltimore or at least some of her ideas

    Screwing with the numbers thatโ€™s how.

    • Basically this is fake news

    • missourimomofthree | December 30, 2019 at 8:36 PM | Reply

      The numbers come from the justice department…same justice department led by a president and an atty general who hate Chicago. I have studied this stuff. including the numbers for years. If you are capable of reading anything more than 240. characters, you might try several of the academic histories of policing in large cities… these are real numbers and can be verified by comparing violent trauma numbers from hospitals in Chicago.

    • @missourimomofthree reports last year were of the massive increase in murders. So how can her lies be true? Dummy can’t be both!

    • @missourimomofthree trumptards don’t read

    • Daniel, you know nada about Trump supporters because your culture is responsible for so many atrocities you can only pray that virtue signalling might save you from your eternal shame lolololol ๐ŸŒ๏ธ

  14. Gentrification is happening in the city, just saying.

    • YEP

    • Erica Jenkins I definitely agree with that.

    • Erica Jenkins
      Iโ€™m ppl could afford to move like that. Ghettos wouldnโ€™t exist.

      So saying gentrification is dropping crime is like saying you donโ€™t have to change diapers on a stillborn.

      Kinda vivid and dramatic but a very fair point.

    • Rap music creates ghettos: it teaches blacks to act in a threatening manner and scares away business leaving no employment opportunities. Welfare takes over and so too intergenerational hopelessness – all because of the propaganda of rap music… Hollywood owns black America until they wake up and say no to rap music! Rap music is slave music!

    • Abbott IsGone yes Ghettos were created BY rap music….๐Ÿ™„….as opposed to all of the other areas across the globe with high violence and drug use rates (eg mexico, favelas of Brazil, Philippines, shantytowns of African countries, London, Liverpool, etc), that were created through poverty….

      Hereโ€™s a hint..the homicide rate of Chicago and # of total murders was higher prior to rap music even existing.

  15. As for this boast coming from Chicago I would say they’re forging the numbers !!

    • mm328 mm328 Oh, I’m sure you would. Meanwhile I’ll enjoy the happy news! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ
      To be cynical is to rob yourself on hope and trust. We need both to adress the issues of tomorrow. ๐Ÿ’ช

      To be naive is to drown with your nose in the air.

  16. Lightfoot for Governor๐Ÿ‘

    Technology huh? I guess we should be asking help from Omni Consumer Products in sister city Delta City for their input. I’d buy that for a dollar!

    I love hearing this kind of news! ๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ i live in Hawaiโ€™i, where crime is really low and I feel itโ€™s because our communities are all so close and look out for each other..,so itโ€™s great to see that itโ€™s working in Chicago. ๐Ÿ˜

    Blk folks know what was really going on, the main ones who was supposed to be solving the problems was creating it themselves.

  20. “Double-digit” decline = 10 less shootings per year.
