  1. A complicated set of unfortunate circumstances that played out over span of decades. The most revolutionary act a gang member can make is to cease and desist from all criminal activity. Reeducate ones self to the exploitation of a social agenda to keep the most vulnerable members of the city as the scapegoat's to criminal behavior. Drug sales fund underground wars. The music industry promotes criminality. The same executive's, invest in private jail systems. A very distorted, disturbing, perpetual cycle. I have developed a curriculum and syllabus for the cognative restructuring of the criminal mind. Exposing core issues of the exploitation and of the militarization, of a constructed poverty class. Studies confirm that " a hungry mouse in a maze will most likely always follow the cheese." Conflict and violence funds so many industries if we solved the problem alot of people would be out of work. Doctor's and surgeons, lawyers, judges, bail bondsmen, gun manufacturers, social service agencies, crime scene investigator's ect, ect. A particular segment of modern industry rests on the backs of the impoverished weak and vulnerable. Coersing them to dehumanize, devalue, and criminalize themselves. Ultimately self mastery and self education is key. A felonious status is prerequisite to a modern form of slavery. " Those who know don't say, those who say ….. don't know".

  2. chicago's politics gets a ton of drug money from these "organizations" from the cop to the top. pretty obvious, we could eliminate gangbangers fairly quickly, if it weren't for the corrupt officials.

  3. Who care about Chicago leftist community this is what you get with Democrats in power. They deserve what they vote for.

  4. WHERE ARE THE DEMOCRATS WHO WANT TO TAKE GUNS AWAY FROM LAW ABIDING CITIZENS, YET THESE PEOPLE CANNOT EVEN PROTECT THEIR OWN LIVES, LET THOSE OF THEIR LOVED ONES OR WORSE STILL KIDS.

  9. We are so worried about boots on the ground chasing foreign terrorists around when in our own country and our own cities we are full of domestic Terror. I say it's about time we take some of this s*** serious. It's time that we as Citizens get our act together and figure out what is important for us as a country. It has nothing to do with Democrats and Republicans these people are supposed to be working for us. It is our own fault that we have let s*** get out of control the way that it has. It's time we dig our feet in the sand and out these assholes that have no morals or regard for human life and the politicians who are willing to let them hide behind them.

  10. I know the panel means well and are trying to help but they deflect the question when asked about this being a community crisis.

  11. I’ll tell you what their doing. Upper class buying up real estate raising taxes and rent. Lower class can’t afford so they move out of Chicago to suburbs. Won’t accept section 8 in upper class areas. So crime will drop that’s the goal.

  12. It’s not a health crisis or anything disease related. It’s a spiritual crisis in individual people. C’mon man. That’s not a smart or realistic way to attack violence in the streets

  13. Lightfoot is just one in succession of Democrats who have beens mayor of Crimecago since 1933. But with Lori being the ultimate lib social warrior, it will only compound the problem. She allow the gangs to flourish and at the same time hamstring the CPD.

  14. That mayor actually protests ICE? Democrats love having illegal aliens here. She should get together with Ilhan Omar.

  15. Glad to see that no one wants to let any of the blame fall on liberal rich intellectual entertainment and consumer product producers for pushing negative behavior on vulnerable communities and people and then pushing piles of cash into the hands of young hungry people seducing them to promote their own greedy motivations, encouraging them to say you ain't real if you ain't like me.

  16. Isn't it strange that both Sweden and Chicago has spiralling gun violence when both outlaw guns? It's more dangerous to live where socialism takes away your right of self-defence.

  17. Andrew Yang and his freedom dividend will pump much needed money into these communities and help them develop, so that people have more job options

  18. Democrats in the literal sense of the word are not the perpetrators of violence. You're lying or stupid if you truly believe that.

  19. Father absence is the problem. Immature idiots making babies with foolish girls then leaving other people (tax payers) to foot the cost. HOLD MEN RESPONSIBLE! If they have a baby and haven’t got a job, give them jobs.
    Come on, this isn’t that hard to comprehend!

  20. Oh yes we are going to tolerate ICE removing violent criminals. Oh yes we are. IDK who she thinks she is, but criminals are criminals, and they are to be dealt with as such.

  21. It's sad, but we going to open up about the city of Harvey? That's not Chicago. Chicago is bad, but media keep adding surrounding cities and suburbs as Chicago and that's what's making it seen worst than what it is. Also, you know who need the fingers pointed at? The alderman, alderwomen, whatever pronoun they identify as. But, I'm going to finish watching before I continue to comment

  22. So wheres the outrage from BLM activist?? Or better yet the democrats, who are soooooo agianst gun violence. Theres no white man to blame here so its unimportant. Smh i swear this makes me sad and mad at the same time. Trump 2020✊✊

  23. ANYTHING about how white cops are MORE hesitant than ever to shoot black suspects who deserve it due to The Race Card being pulled, like clockwork?

  24. killings black on black the dems love that dead blac ks for them is fuel for there racist party …. TRUMP 2020

  25. I have friends who live in Harvey IL and I had no idea. That's how common it is. RIP little princess. 😢

  26. Who's to blame? Police? You've got a black mayor, black police. Why play the blame game. It's a black on black crises. The problem starts in the family and the school. The church leaders have to stop their word salads. Health crisis, disease, leviathan? Blah blah – tell that to the 12 year old girl's family. You're a cruel priest. I can't bear to watch this BS.

  27. You can walk to the ends of earth and legislate all your way to hell and back ,if you dont obey the commandments and laws of God it will continue as it has & WILL. Especially in our communities because we are Israelites and a curse is on us by God and no man can save us!

  28. Fatherless homes, welfare and child support encourage fatherless homes, destroying the family unit makes for a lot of angry young men, I wish a community leader would stand up and speak the truth just once!!

  29. There are a lot of corrupted politicians in Illinois. Our previous governor, who was a Republican was the worst. Rahm Emmanuel was also the worst mayor. Harvey police are corrupted. And politicians don’t care about minorities… they just want our votes. All of these broken promises .

  30. Its always been a black community problem. No fathers, single mothers, rap music and film culture, sports culture, disrespect of law and morals, loss of religion loss of true pride. After so long if they cant get their crap together something drastic needs to be done.
    Oh I forgot the biggest ill, liberals.

  31. Lets ask the obvious questions…why do you raise punk azz kids and then complain what they do? What are you doing about it as a community besides hiding and cowering? Your telling me you can do a million man march on the white house but you can do it in your own streets? Your the problem!!! You allow it. Your community allows it…the laws allow it, everything you do is the opposite of what you should do apparently…and heres the stunner!!!!…this has been goin on fo a lonnnng time. Finally enough people get smoked and its time to act lol. Nope, even under these extreme circumstances more punk azz kids are raised and allow to mob the streets with impunity. But yet you want help? You need more than help. Start by not raising punk azz kids!!!

  32. If I lived in a city where there was rampant violence by our people then I would say to my fellow people that we have to fix this from the bottom up,,,,each community has to police itself first!

  33. The mayor is Jesse Jackson in drag. She sure knows how to remove library book fines. She's a black racist who hates white people.

  34. Daley and Rahm ran up almost a billion in debt now Lightfoot wants to raise property taxes at the same time preaching affordable housing Hows that supposed to work? They can't hire more cops because of the pension debt and the teachers are trying to extort even more from the taxpayer the politions think the people are stupid they added a garbage pickup fee at the same time collecting property taxes up to the centerline of the alley which already pays for garbage collection now they're selling parking spaces through permit parking in residential areas when that is already being paid for by buying a city sticker you want to see your tax dollar at work? Ride down Western Blvd after even a light rain the name should be changed to Western Canal in was just repaved last year .So be careful who you vote for. Not that it matters they are all crooks

  35. Wouldn't local people pretty much know who is causing the bulk of the issue surely you can start by getting rid of the main trouble makers and go from there…Bring back stop and frisk and nail anyone carrying an illegal firearm.

  36. Pearl Harbor the Japanese DID NOT invade the USA because they said “behind every blade of grass lies an American with a gun” ….. take the guns away from American citizens and the invasions will start

  37. Decades Chicago been run by Dems from politics to the judiciary etc. Common sense just needs to kick in, I'll leave it at that.

  38. As long as they keep making guns in the projects and they keep the poppy feilds growing in the courtyards ,this will never stop

  39. Blah, blah, blah. Nothing will EVER change in the anus of the U.S. as long as apathy, fatherlessness, corruption, illiteracy and ignorance remain its cultural norms. And they will remain.

  40. Most of these shootings are from Mon of a single parent home. These men growing up needs a strong male role model to teach them how to be a respectable and responsible man. But the welfare state encourages women not to marry their babies father and they will take care of the women. This has been promoted by the Democratic party for decades. Make these women get off of welfare and go to work. Encourage the couple to marry and become a supporting family. Offer assistance to the families if their income don't pay their bills. But only to married families. This will promote building the family.

  41. Somehow this has to whitie's fault. The black community is not capable of solving this problem unless they take a strong look at their culture. But, they are saved, their new mayor, is a liberal black woman and we all know how successful they are at governing. Good luck Chicago, you elected EXACTLY the right person to guide you on the fast track to hell.

  42. Stop voting for Democrats, morons! Get rid of the police chief. Get rid of the city council. Get rid of the good ole boy network. Get rid of the special political favors. Get rid of the city unions. Get rid of anyone not doing their job. Get rid of the corruption!!

    Violence is not a disease, it's a symptom dummy. Chicago is violent and dysfunctional because hundreds of thousands of its people come from problematic households.

    Gangs is your biggest threat, not ICE! Stupid liberal morons. With your city leaders who think like this, no wonder Chicago is the way it is!! Holy Lord God Almighty!

  43. If the corrupt Democrat politicians would stop committing a treasonous coup against President Donald Trump and actually spend their time on serving the people, these problems woulyd exist in the first place. But some people stupidly continually vote for them.

  44. Black Americans need better heroes. Instead of stupid loser rappers, they should have heroes that actually add value to our society, with good principles, etc.

  45. If Democrat ruled communities actually had good economic opportunities, than many of those people would be working instead of taking drugs, listening to rap music, killing people, etc. Thank goodness President Donald Trump is creating such an economic miracle, but it won't fully help the people in the toxic Democrat communities until the policies change locally.

  46. Police presence in Chicago would probably be much better if police wouldn't get in trouble for doing their job. You pull a gun on a police officer or any other weapon you deserve to be shot. The problem is the police officers are afraid to do their job for fear of this situation

  47. She blames the police. I blame people who have multiple children with multiple partners who could care less about raising the children they create. Until that changes, no government agency can change that. No one can replace a two parent home where both parents have an interest in their well being. It starts and ends in the home. Until that changes, you can come back in 100 years and it will be the same.

  48. More people were getting killed in gang violence in Chicago in the 80s and 90s, but the nobody cared. Now, they realize they can score political points by talking about so they report on it. Also, it's not like the people that are committing these murders are just random people. They live in the communities and are protected by them in many cases; I get that there's a mistrust of police and a fear at coming forward, but at the same time, if you want the killing to stop this code of silence needs to stop.

  49. I'm curious why this issue in Chicago is never talked about but "police brutality" and "racist cops" are all over the place. If black lives really mattered people would care more about the violence in Chicago.

  50. Any city that votes Democrat isn’t worth my time or effort to care about them. Just stay the hell out of my district.

  51. Every police officer should have too do community service in the district they work in every week or month so they can build a close relationship with the people they are serving.

  52. Wow, a town hall in 2019 and still nobody can speak honestly about the root cause of the problem. It’s the dissolution of the family. You can talk about drugs and cops and crumbling infrastructures and education all you want—they’ve been having the same idiotic discussion for decades—all for what? They’ve been throwing more and more money into the system and all for what? Government keeps getting bigger and so do the problems. Why don’t the idiots in all of the major cities where these problems exist try something else? Nope. They’ll keep voting Democrat until there’s nothing left but ruin and blame for everyone but themselves.

  53. Mr. Tony Robinson was dead on. The police are not going to solve this problem it's a community problem. Start turning in the criminals. Stop letting ur kids be thugs. When I was a kid my mother told me dont go looking to her for help if i got in trouble with the law. She was serious as can be
