Excerpt from The Daily Caller
Written by Steve Birr
Nearly 4,000 people have been murdered in President Barack Obama’s adopted city during his presidency.
On Tuesday in Chicago, Obama plans to bid farewell to the nation and tout the “historic moments” of his presidency.
In the eight years since Obama was sworn into office Jan. 20, 2009, 3,930 people have been killed in homicides across the Illinois city. The majority were black males killed by guns, despite Chicago’s stringent restrictions on all types of firearms. To put this in perspective, this is nearly as high as the 4,229 service members killed during the Iraq War under President George W. Bush.
