What are u a weatherman or a crime reporter? Stick to the crimes.

Weather plays a role into crime, if you didn't know. That's why I give a brief description of the weather for the day, so folks have a general idea of how much crime there might be. Obviously, if it's cold outside, we'll have more crimes inside than outside, and I think we all know by now that when it gets hot, crime spikes.

Obviously I stuck to the crimes because there's almost a page and a half here. Have a nice day.

Weather and Crime are related. It's important to know what the weather will be like so one can prepare themselves is the more hispanic gang infested areas. It gets violent when it's hot weather.

The unmarked squad went around the gates and hit the Brown line train. This is why so many chases are called off. They have no regard for public safety.
