Another Reason Why Chicago Is So Violent

An article in the Chicago Sun Times says that police officers in Chicago may arrest 60,000 criminals.
From the Sun Times: Through mid-December, police were on pace to make about 50,000 arrests citywide in 2016 — down from over 69,000 a year ago. The year’s current arrest total is less than half what it was in 2010, the year before Mayor Rahm Emanuel took office.
• The drop is steepest in areas such as Englewood and Austin where violence is common and police have long flooded “hot spots” and drug markets. But the decline isn’t limited to high-crime areas: Arrests are down by double digits in every district in the city.
The CPD has about 12,500 officers on the department. 
That translates to 4 arrests per officer over the year.
4 arrests per year per officer.
Another reason why Chicago still sucks.
