      Doesn’t really sound like something I’d be proud of but each their own I guess.

      What people who have never lived in Chicago never understand is that the majority of the city is pretty safe.

      The news you hear about violence and shootings are, generally, concentrated on the southwest side and are usually associated with gang violence.

      That being said, Chicago is still a highly segregated, corrupt, heavily blue city. There are plenty of other things to attack Chicago for that are true. No need to create a false narrative.

      EDIT: Niko, this response is not directed at you specifically. It’s just that this isn’t the first time I’ve seen a post about Chicago being a violent cesspool, and I felt the need to provide some context.
