Press Conference at Police Headquarters


The results of last night's police raids on the South and West Sides in response to recent shooting incidents: most arrestees were repeat offenders, including documented gang members. 12 firearms were confiscated, including a machine gun. Guns come from out of state -- one was stolen in a previous burglary. Of 81 individuals in custody, 79 were felony charges.

"We must take a stand and say 'enough is enough'. Tougher state legislation is vital", said Supt. Eddie Johnson.
