Possibility Of A Serial Killer Nothing New For Chicago Activists

Over a 20 year period, 51 African American women have been found strangled and dumped on Chicago’s South and West side

Earlier this week we spoke to an expert who believes it’s the work of a serial killer or killers.

But community activists have been raising alarm bells for years.

And the reaction of the police has essentially been “nothing to be seen here”.

We talk to 3 activists who have had extensive contact with the police and the victim’s families.

Plus, many Chicago suburbs use what’s known as “auxiliary police”. But few know what police powers they have, or don’t have.

And some are wondering if their presence causes more harm than good.
