Check out this Chicago Breaking News post

Well this story about the four women who stabbed a man to death apparently over a broken cigarette has dominated the EveryBlock feed this morning. I point out this post from Chicago Breaking News mainly for the comments. Even the Alderman chimes in.

Basically some of the commentors responds to some disparaging comments made by a commentor who lives on the North Shore.

Another day in the southSide, did you guys wonder how the city and murder rate be if there was no south side at all HMMM?

Let's see now. According to your logic, there is and has been no crime committed anywhere in Illinois north of Madison Street. But we know that isn't true, don't we?
Here's a pair of good comments on a racial angle:

I don't know what is more unbeleiveable. The fact four people killed someone over a broken cigarette or the post on this board. I have to say at least no has come up with the scholar story regarding these four. Some leader in the black community really needs to step up and really be a role model. Not preaching racism but preaching responsibility.

I want know where Obama, Rev. Wright, Otis Moss, Louis Farrakahan, Michael Phleger and the other fine leaders of chicago are? These fools wants to complain about racism, yet in their neighborhoods Chicago is the murder capital of the world with thousands and thousands of african americans killing each other day after day.
It's interesting the comments that was sparked for this story and it ranged from support for these young women to arguments on area geography to even racial commentary. This is an unfortunate story no matter the angle, because I'm not sure anyone should be killed over a cigarette, yet a man is dead over this. That's a shame.

Is the south side worse than any other part of the City?

Are you more likely to be a victim of a crime on Chicago's south side?

What do you think?
