Прокурор хвастается успехами своей прокуратуры

Chicago's top federal prosecutor says a crumbling gang structure is behind local violent crime, a situation that has led to "kids pulling the trigger over nothing."

Appearing before the City Club of Chicago on Wednesday, U.S. Attorney Zachary T. Fardon said over the last few decades prosecutors have successfully cracked down on senior leadership in Chicago's major gangs such as the Gangster Disciples, the Latin Kings, the Black P Stones and the Black Disciples.

But in the wake of those prosecutions "the gang problem has grown more complex rather than less," Fardon said in prepared remarks for the luncheon at a River North restaurant.
