Chicago police are facing increased pressure to bring the city’s rising violence under control. More than 4,300 people have been shot this year, and there have been more than 730 homicides, the worst numbers in 20 years. Bill Whitaker looks for answers on Sunday’s “60 Minutes.”
Data obtained by CBS News found that as killings in Chicago rose, police activity fell. In August 2015, Chicago police stopped and questioned 49,257 people, while in August 2016 police stopped 8,859 (-80%). Arrests dropped from 10,154 to 6,916.
Former Chicago Police Superintendent Garry McCarthy in an interview that when (police) activity falling off the way it is and crime skyrocketing, that’s a huge problem.” He agreed to a question posed about the Chicago police in crisis, “when people are dying that’s a crisis, there’s no two ways about it.”
Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel declined to participate for an interview request by 60 Minutes.
CBS News Bill Whitaker’s report aired Sunday CBS 60 Minutes following NFL football.
