Chicago defends 'likely-to-commit a crime' list

CHICAGO (AP) — A Chicago Police Department list of people deemed most likely to commit gun crimes or be a gun violence victim includes many people who’ve never been charged with violent crimes or possession of a gun.

The department has long pointed to what is called the “Strategic Subject List” as an effective crime-fighting tool that helps it predict who’ll commit a gun crime or be a victim of it. Superintendent Eddie Johnson has said that about 1,400 people drive gun violence in Chicago.

But the Chicago Sun-Times analyzed a version of the list it obtained and found it’s far more extensive than police have suggested and includes nearly 400,000 entries that includes everyone arrested and fingerprinted in Chicago since 2013.

Chicago police acknowledge the list has evolved over time.
