Chicago police are going to hand deliver letters to people suspected of committing or being victims of gun crimes in an effort to stem violence in the city, according to a new report.
Starting Friday, a district commander will be delivering letters warning certain targets in that district not to commit violent crimes, the Chicago Sun-Times reports.
Next step? No dessert and they have to go to their rooms!
That should stop the murders in Chicago. Of which there have been over 200 in 2013. The murder rate in actually down by about 25% from last year. Must be those letters.
Now that Illinois will have concealed carry, it will be interesting to see if the rate changes over the next 2-3 years.
