I was under impression that the FBI had a permanent "Illinois politicians, et al" file open at all times.

And the problem with Chicago is how localized the violence is. North Side is fine, so North Siders don't care. Loop's fine, so Loopers don't care. Near South Side's fine, so Near South Siders don't care. Near West Side's fine, so Near West Siders don't care. And those polticians that represent the troubled areas live in a handful of gated community enclaves that are fine despite being surrounded by the blighted areas, so they don't care either.

As great as the Loop is and the North Side is and a handful of other areas are, their greatness is the reason why there isn't a bigger push to fix the areas that are troubled.
