WBEZ and WNYC are co-hosting a special two-city call-in to discuss how each city approaches the fight against gun violence. We’re live from both cities (9 a.m. CST and 10 a.m. EST) to discuss how the New York Police Department and Chicago Police Department are trying to curb violence, and how communities are reacting to different policing strategies. We ask listeners to weigh-in on how are communities should be policed. Chicagoans, are the police failing to bring down crime? New Yorkers, are the police keeping crime low but at too high a price in civil liberties? Is there a unified approach that could serve both cities’ need? #flashpoint Photo: Flickr/Ian Britton
