It's easy to understand why the Obamas aren't coming back to Chicago.
From ABC Chicago:
The city of Chicago saw 72 murders last month, according to crime data released by Chicago police Friday. It is the most of any month so far this year.
There were also 361 shootings in June and 447 shooting victims. Halfway through the year, there have been more than 300 murders and more than 1,600 shootings and 1953 shooting victims.
Chicago police say they've made changes to try to combat the violence with special patrols at beaches and parks. They have also added officers in more high crime areas they have expanded bike and foot patrols and re-vamped their overtime system.
