CHICAGO BEARS RADIO -- WBBM Newsradio 780 "Traffic on the 8's"


With up to 30 people shot in a weekend, Chicago is in the spotlight regarding violence and gang violence. RT’s Ameera David discusses the unprecedented violence in Chicago with retired Los Angeles Police Department Detective Sergeant Dennis Fanning.

Criminal street gangs make most of their money selling drugs. Los Angeles Police Department Detective Sergeant Dennis Fanning says Chicago’s problem is similar to the problem Los Angeles experienced in the 1980s.

A 2012 audit by the Chicago Crime Commission found there are more than 600 gang factions in the city with a combined membership of 70,000 (Official gang count = 59).

There are about 12,000 cops in Chicago.

The average age for gang members is 16 to 19 year-old, but there are members as young as 13 to 14.

A gang can sell between 400 to 1,000 bags of heroin per day, netting up to $10,000
