    A dealth penalty that is more consistently and more rapidly administered is essential to counter these crimes.

    There is a gang that lives in one of the section 8 row houses right on the corner of 91st and Wabash, I moved from that area several years ago. Those gang bangers hang around all the time there. Used to be a very quiet beautiful neighborhood. Burglaries are normal there now.
