We discuss the real, underlying causes of the “massing” crimes in touristy areas on this week’s show. Salim Muwakkil (In These Times, WVON) says there’s an air of desperation in some impoverished communities, and changes in the gang structures have led some young people to be more brazen and visible in their crimes.

Tribune columnist/blogger Eric Zorn’s also on the panel this week, along with Chicago Magazine’s Whet Moser. We explore what’s taking so long for a Blago verdict, what the recent revisions to the CHA’s drug policies will mean for residents, Ed Burke’s security detail, and much more.
