So it took the murder of innocent children in a mainly white suburban neighborhood to bring such anger and actions? I guess the 500+ in Chicago don't mean much. I don't have statistics on the last half of 2012. However, the first half of 2012 brought only 11 white fatalities while 201 of the 259 homicides were African American. In Chicago, 33% of the population is black but 78% of the dead by June 2012 were black. By the end of the year, there were 513 dead and over 2600 people wounded by guns. Nothing said by this administration nor Rahm about control. Nothing. By comparison, just 11 homicide victims in the first six months of the year were white, and 44 were Hispanic, according to police data.
