Playing with numbers and racial profiling?
Researchers, activists question how the Chicago Police Dept. tracks and categorizes so-called gang members and accuracy of the numbers.

Gun violence is the top crime problem associated with Chicago, particularly in neighborhoods and communities occupied primarily by Black and Latino people. The issue has long been on the radar of politicians at every level, and the Chicago Police Department has employed a number of strategies to get a better handle on the daily shootings that happen on the South and West Sides.

One of these is the Strategic Subjects List (SSL), also referred to as the Chicago Gang Database. The purpose of the SSL, according to police, is to identify those individuals who are most likely to either be a perpetrator or victim of gun violence.

This is commonly referred to as predictive policing. However, a recent study of the SSL found that the Chicago Police department is actually using the database as a profiling mechanism specifically targeting Blacks and Latinos.
