President Obama "will give a farewell address next week from Chicago, his hometown" as reported by The New York Times: "in an email to supporters, Mr. Obama said the speech would give him 'a chance to say thank you for this amazing journey, to celebrate the ways you've changed this country for the better these past eight years, and to offer some thoughts on where we all go from here."
One thing that certainly has not changed "for the better" has been the murder statistics in the Windy City. In 2009, the year in which President Obama took office, Chicago had 459 murders, and it just closed out 2016 with 762 murders which is the highest number since the mid-1990s. The dramatic uptick is due largely to pissing matches by street gangs slinging drugs for the Mexican cartels.
If President Obama genuinely cares about the good people of Chicago, perhaps he should return to his hometown after leaving the White House, and organize the community against drug-trafficking street gangs. Unfortunately, given all the bloodshed in Chicagoland, it's not exactly an appropriate time for President Obama to be taking a self-congratulatory bow to the home crowd.
