(CBS) — Several mayoral candidates criticized Mayor Emanuel’s record on crime while Chicago Police Superintendent Garry McCarthy says crime is moving in the right direction.
CBS 2 Chief Correspondent Jay Levine reports whether or not Chicagoans are, or should feel, safer depends on who or which statistics you believe.
McCarthy says the city is on track to have the fewest murders since 1965. He spoke just hours after Mayoral candidate Jesus “Chuy” Garcia blasted the mayor for failing to halt the epidemic of violence.
Garcia says there were “Over 10,000 shootings over a four-year period.”
