The media would have us believe that the problem of dead bodies piling up at record rates in Chicago is “gun violence” John Kass, writing for the Chicago Tribune, calls BS on that narrative
With at least 78 killed so far, August is the deadliest month in nearly 20 years, according to a Tribune analysis. It’s all but certain that the city’s homicide total will push beyond the 491 dead of last year.
Some call it “gun violence,” a definition greatly appreciated by Democratic politicians like those at City Hall. They can point to guns and take that voter anger over homicide numbers and channel it into a safe space.
