as terrible a number as it is, the establishment will use that same information to argue that the numbers are down more than fifty percent from last year. so, getting them to acknowledge that we need to work on the problem is problematic because they'll say they are working on the problem. so, how do we reduce those numbers? what should we do, as a people, to stop this epidemic of killing in Chicagoland? no, I don't live there...but I have relatives all over Chicago; all my mother's relatives live there. so, yes, I do have a vested interest in what goes on there. I've seen the older ones move from neighborhood to neighborhood, trying to stay ahead of the violence...hoping to keep their kids safe. I've seen the younger ones, those who didn't go to college to better themselves, trying to adapt to the cruelties of the streets...to prove they can survive. fortunately, they haven't become statistics, but that can change, any day.
what's the solution?
