CEASEFIRE

I don't care. I said it before and I'll say it again. This is the only program that I have ever heard of that does anything to stop the violence and killing in Chicago. I know it sounds like liberal bullshit. But there are alot of statistics coming out that show this works. Just sayin'. I keep seeing article after article about it.

  1. Don't forget to mention one of the three stooges found dead in the trunk of that Avalon the other day was recently on Ceasefire's payroll. Maybe he was a victim of Ceasefire's success.

  3. I had a friend who was killed by a gang member in 1992. I believe that was a record year for murders in Chicago. We lived in an all white neighborhood. I hung around with him everyday. He had no gang affiliation. He was half mexican. He went to visit his cousins in the Little Village neighborhood one day and got killed. Ever since, I hated gangs and wondered what could be done about them. I read the papers everyday. There have been many initiatives. Nothing has worked. Ceasefire is the first program with independant, verifiable results. It has been examined by many reputable institutions and has been shown to work. It is not 100%. It's like AA. I have seen people join AA and end up right back in the bar worse than ever. That doesn't mean it doesn't work.
