3 dead, 12 wounded in Chicago shootings – Chicago Tribune.

No marches. Media not flocking to Chicago. Sharpton, Jackson, Obama quiet. What matters? Sad, very sad.

    As a Chicagoan who moved two years ago but has family and friends residing there, I regularly follow the Chicago news. With all the violence in Ferguson, MO and Baltimore, MD, there has been lots of coverage and outrage. Where is the outrage about Chicago? The only outrage I’ve heard about lately is the “Chiraq” movie that Spike Lee plans to film. The violence in Chicago is among many of the city’s problems, in addition to high unemployment (regardless of the official numbers) for everyone but especially minorities and minority teenagers. But, I am glad that the likes of Al Sharpton are not involved because he would only exacerbate the problem. What is the answer? Please add your thoughts in the comments

      As a former Chicagoan too, I agree with you, Sharpton stay away!

      My brother lives on the north side. He says it’s a good neighborhood, but I shouldn’t park on an adjacent street since a cop was shot there recently. Nice?

      Gangs, fatherless boys lost in a vacuums of values, adolescent brains and a surge of hormones, are responsible for most of the crime. Better policing is not a long term solution. Better families is the answer, but that’s not going to help for the short term.
