Review of Chicago, Illinois
its safe then why does local new start with shooti
Went to Chicago once for a live event was told to go to the main airport because the second one was in the middle of a war zone only stayed two days
just wondering for those who think Chicago is fine why is it the local news 95% of the time opens up with someone got shot doesn't sound too fine to me

i travel twice a month out of Midway airport - have never seen any crime on the way to/from the airport. Stop watching the conspiracy theory news channels. You really think people would rather live in Albuquerque?
I was in Chicago & I promise you they are downright passive in the midwest. I am used to Philly drivers & fighters; one thing I will say is people CANNOT drive in Chicago, especially Southside. People block intersections & 1 ways!!! The things I saw just trying to find parking would get you shot in Philly. Chicago is midwest, very passive. When stupid drivers are yelled at they just raise their hands like "????? guess I can't drive; try to go around me idk what i am doing"
