Eight Forty-Eight 12.06.10
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.
