CN April 28, 2011

It’s a very serious discussion this week as we talk with two veteran journalists who’ve been covering crime, police and justice issues for decades.

Our panelists are Frank Main, whose Sun-Times series just won a Pulitzer, and Chicago Reporter publisher Alden Loury. They talk frankly about what they’ve observed after years of covering some of Chicago’s most violence-plagued communities, and what they think can be done about the cycle of intimidation and retaliation. There’s also a good discussion about who might become Chicago’s next police superintendent.

(The Sun-Times series was reported by Main and Mark Konkol, with photographer John Kim).
