In a special four-part series, correspondent Christof Putzel takes you to the streets of Chicago's West and South sides to explore how the city became the most violent in the country and what's being done to stop its gang-related violence. Putzel and producers Brent Renaud and Craig Renaud spent months in Chicago reporting on each side's perspective: the police, the advocates, the churches, the schools, the families, and the gang members themselves. Watch excerpts of his reports below and find more Chicago coverage from America Tonight and Al Jazeera America:
