Even if you don't happen to live in one of the hotspots for violent crime in Chicago--like North Lawndale, Auburn Gresham, 63rd and Halsted, Englewood, or West Garfield Park--wherever violence happens, we're all paying.
In a half hour special, FOX 32 News goes deep into the Chicago violence problem that most will never go: into the neighborhoods, inside the gangs, inside the jail, and inside the lives of the innocent families caught in the crossfire.
We looked at the crime, what's being done about it, and how well it's working in a FOX 32 News Special Report on violence: Chicago at the Tipping Point.
