You’ve heard of the “day in the life of” an interesting person or public figure. Well now, new ballistic technology is helping federal agents and police create a day in the life of the guns being used by criminals terrorizing America’s neighborhoods-- especially those in Chicago.

It’s called the National Integrated Ballistic Information Network (NIBIN). Basically when police recover a gun or shell casing from a crime scene, they immediately enter that data into the NIBIN—which now has created a valuable story for tens of thousands of guns still on the streets and those recovered from bad guys.

Basically, when officers recover a gun they can immediately tell when and where it’s been used anywhere in the country.

POLITICS OF POLICING MAKING CHICAGO CRIME WAVE WORSE?

"Minus this technology, we would never be able to connect those dots, it would virtually be impossible to have those connections,” said ATF Special Agent Dave Coulson.

NIBN recently helped police possibly connect a gun recovered in Chicago to the unsolved murder of a young woman.

In February, 21-year-old Tenisha Mallet, a mother of a 4-year-old daughter, was walking on the sidewalk with friends on the west side of Chicago when someone pulled up in a car and fired at them. Mallet was hit and killed.

“You basically lose like not only your sister, your best friend you grew up with that you would still be with every day,” said Mallet’s sister, Teaira.

CHICAGO'S VIOLENT GANGS LOOTING FREIGHT CARS FILLED WITH GUNS

Mallet’s murder remains unsolved. Blood still stains the sidewalk where her body fell.

“We have just the names of the people she was with,” Teaira Mallet said. “We don’t know who might have done it. We don’t know who—basically we don’t even know who was targeted.”

A 9-millimeter Glock was recently recovered from and NIBIN indicated it was used in February and in the same district where Mallet was killed. It could be the gun that killed her.

That same gun was also used in another homicide in March of 2016 and four other separate shootings across the city.

The gun is part of an active investigation so police can’t identify who they might have recovered it from but the good news is because of NIBIN that person has a lot of questions to answer, including whether they pulled the trigger in those two murders. 

NIBIN technology is giving police a detailed history of guns they otherwise would never have had.  The ATF told Fox News that in Chicago alone NIBIN has helped them build dozens of gun cases pending in court right now.

“Every crime scene has a story, every firearm has a story,” Coulson said, “and we are trying to exploit that information as much as we can – especially here in the city of Chicago.”

ADMIN:  This is more on NIBIN as the City of Baltimore has asked for Federal help to an out of control Murder Rate.  The Feds are sending a NIBIN Van.   What I can't figure out is how can they have the highest Murder rate in the County when they have the strictest gun laws.  The anti gun people tell us that stricter gun control will end gun related crimes so Baltimore, Chicago, Seattle, LA and all those cities should be the safest in the Country.   Maybe the below story is made up so the City can get more money or something.  Here is the story:

Baltimore’s mayor has asked the FBI and other federal agencies to help the city, which has one of the nation’s strictest gun control laws, as it struggles with an accelerating pace of murders.

This past weekend alone saw four murders, adding to the 104 that been committed since the start of 2017.

“We are looking for all the help we can get,” Mayor Catherine Pugh said on Monday, according to FoxBaltimore.com. “As you know our murder rate is up. Murder is out of control. Too many guns on our streets."

The mayor said that last week she requested additional manpower and equipment from federal agencies, including the FBI and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF).

Pugh, appearing with local police officials and ATF officials, announced that the city would start receiving some of the requested help, including a new bullet-tracing van, known as a National Integrated Ballistic Information Network (NIBIN) van, that assists police in more quickly solving gun-related crimes.

Through the end of last month, murders in Baltimore topped 100 and are the most in the city since 1993 when 110 people had been murdered in the first four months of that year. However, the city has 110,000 fewer residents than it did in 1993, making this year’s murder rate through April the highest per capita rate in the city’s history.

The NIBIN van is outfitted with technology that can immediately process bullet casings in real time to help trace where they may have been fired from.

The NIBIN network is used by U.S. law-enforcement agencies to help generate leads on gun-related crimes. According to a description of the network on the ATF’s website, NIBIN has helped to capture approximately 2.8 million images of ballistic evidence and more than 74,000 positive matches on bullets from guns committed in previous crimes.

According to the Sun, violent crime is up by 23 percent in the city compared to 2016. Gun-related crimes like homicides, shootings and robberies have all seen double-digit increases.

Councilman Brandon Scott said that it's violent repeat offenders that are holding the city hostage with more and more crimes.

"A small group of people, over and over, are terrorizing the citizens of this city,” Scott said to Fox News. “It’s something that we need to address now.”
