    "We've never seen anything like it, at all," said Max Kapustin, the senior research director at the crime lab. " ... I don't even know how to put it into context. It's beyond anything that we've ever seen before."

    If people want to march and protest to save lives, why not start here?

    And at least one of the murders was during looting, so apparently that is still a thing even though you wouldn't be able to tell by watching the news.

    And this isn't even a record?? What was happening there in 1960?

    Call 911 and get a psychologist to send over a social worker.

    I guess this means the local politicians and community organizers there will call for defunding CPD?

    Has anyone ever noticed these cities with all the protests/looting/rioting/murders are majority of Liberal/Democratic run sewers?

    I blame all those cop shows on tv being based there and they are helping with story lines

    I'm guessing those killed were white since Black Lives Matter. It's obvious that the police weren't responsible for the killings since the news and protesters aren't responding negatively!

    Police in such areas need to take an 8 hour coffee break when they report to work. Let the numbers skyrocket some, oh, to bad.

    This is only the beginning. Summers in Chicago are horrible for crime. To be honest I wouldn't go to Chicago for any reason. Even if I was doing a once in a lifetime trip I would stay at a hotel in a nice suburb, get up early, drive in, see the sights, and be out before dinner.

    I am shocked 18 murders in 24 hours sets their record. I swore I have seen holiday weekends at around 100 for them.

    So do they actually matter or is that just something they say before they burn stuff down?

    They suffered the deadliest day, or they inflicted the deadliest day?
