Chicago is a city that is morally and financially dissolving in real time.
How bad are things in Chicago? An example is down below.
Chicago’s spike in carjackings has some residents so rattled that aldermen are working with private security to make sure residents can pump gas in peace.
South Side Ald. Stephanie Coleman, 16th, said one of her residents was carjacked at a gas station on Christmas Day, which inspired the idea to hire local security to provide a safe place to fill up “because people are afraid to get gas no matter what time of day of being carjacked.”
“People are legitimately scared to get gas even during daylight because of the rash in carjackings.”
Carjackings in Chicago rose about 135%, to 1,415 in 2020 from 603 in 2019Chicago Tribune
