    This is an opportunity for the police to arrest bangers with outstanding warrants. The feds can participate too. They may get one or two of their top ten most wanted.

    Instead of having a march, which does nothing. Why don't you help the police find this scumbag? Instead of not talking to cops for fear of retaliation, stand up for your community and help the police. I know it's much easier to just have a march, and then stand back and blame the cops for not finding this thug. But nobody is going to help you until you start helping yourself. Everybody is sick and tired of it, and the sympathy for what your doing to each other is starting to fade.

      I thought that the "father" was cooperating with the CPD…Why do I think that this idiot/tool is NOT being cooperative and soooo they asking for the public's help -which will never happen because they would rather march, show fake tears, and carry signs – - than do the RIGHT thing – like the things you mentioned above in your post, Fed up – - And I agree with you 150%!!

    Marching to stop the violence? HOW ABOUT GETTING THE FATHERS OUT OF THE GANGS?

    again….."live by the sword….die by the sword"…. and I agree with above post….."why was the father changing the baby OUTSIDE in the cold of winter?" father was shot…..HE NEEDS to be locked up as he is to blame for this shameful killing as well as the shooter!

    How about taking all children away from any parent (s) with gang connections? At least give the little people a chance at a good/peaceful/loving homelife~
