The focus of this week's Mayor Monday: Crime.

Dec. 06, 2010

University of Chicago Crime Lab director Jens Ludwig talked to "Eight Forty-Eight" about the factors creating Chicago’s violence. Plus, after the U.S. Supreme Court overturned Chicago’s handgun ban last summer, it took just a couple of weeks for the city to write, pass and implement a new gun law. It was a decisive reaction but it was also largely symbolic and it’s not terribly effective...yet.

For this edition of "Eight Forty-Eight's" new  Mayor Monday series, Jason Marck filled in for host Alison Cuddy and looked at crime in Chicago.
