Ceasefire Roseland hosts March for Justice

Members of Roseland Ceasefire held a March for Justice Saturday night, for the family of a West Pullman man shot and killed in front of his home.

38-year old Dionta West was gunned down in his car, just moments after leaving his home in the 600 block of West 117th Street on April 26.

The father of four was heading to work that morning as the custodial supervisor at a Chicago Charter School.

His family believes the gunman targeted West for his car.

Meanwhile, Ceasefire workers claim Chicago police are harassing them, and interfering with their efforts to prevent gang violence.

The city recently entered into a $1 million dollar partnership with the group.

    Another useless march that produces nothing.

    It is nice to see Rev. Jackson at the front of the line in this march. Oops That is not Rev. Jackson I am sorry for the mistake. I guess there was no money changing hands. No money no Jackson.

    Another slice of taxpayer money being re-distributed and absolutely nothing will change.

    Ain’t much of a ceasefire. The recent cold weather has had more impact in reducing the homicide numbers than these yahoos.
