Chicago Tonight: The Week in Review: 2/1

 

On this edition of Chicago Tonight: The Week in Review with Eddie Arruza, outrage sparks over Chicago’s growing gun violence. The deadly shooting of 15-year-old Hadiya Pendleton sparks louder cries for gun control and more effective policing. Former Gov. George Ryan leaves prison after more than five years to serve the rest of his sentence under house arrest. A long list of candidates contend for Sandi Jackson’s vacant 7th ward City Council seat, while the race heats up to fill her husband’s open spot in Congress. Chicago’s housing recovery lags behind that of other large cities. And in sports, TV ratings skyrocket during the Blackhawks six-game winning streak.
