Have police lost control of the streets of Chicago? – BBC Newsnight

1 min read

President Donald Trump has said US cities are seeing a spike in crime, as he sends in federal law enforcement agents to tackle the situation. But what is happening in Chicago, Illinois? Subscribe to our channel here: https://goo.gl/31Q53F

In a city with an international reputation for crime — where 900 murders per year were common in the early 1990s — the first weekend of July was the most violent in Chicago’s modern history with 26 people murdered.

Donald Trump, behind in the polls and desperate to recover, is threatening to send in federal forces to restore order. In some cities he already has. 

Since the death of George Floyd at the end of May, police in many cities have struggled to deal with waves of protest and violent crime. 

Civic leaders, mainly from the democratic party, accuse the president of playing politics and inflaming tensions. 

Our US correspondent David Grossman has this report from Chicago.
