    We can stop the violence today if we put the national guards on city streets with orders to shoot to kill, anyone on the streets with a gun in their hand. This would stop gun violence in one day. But no one wants to really solve the problem, they just want their names to stay in the news as if they are really doing anything, they are really nothing more than Black Camera Hogs, and nothing more. People are tired of getting shot in the @ss every night, and this is a proven way to solve the problem. These camera hogs including Jesse Jackson and his ilk, are the real terrorist of the black community. They fleece their followers, and fill their private bank accounts, and the city is nothing more than a war zone. Mr, Jackson is in Cuba right now instead of keeping his black behind at home and doing something for the black community. He's nothing more than a pulpit pimp, and nothing more. Put the national guards on city streets with orders to shoot to kill, anyone on the streets with a gun in their hand. And if any black people do not like that tactic, simply leave Chicago, and take your bad @ss habits with you. I'm a 57 year old african american male, and I say put a stop to this violence by any means necessary. We as black people must stop looking to the ilk of the black so called leaders, and take responsibility for our own destiny. These race leaders and culture pimps have never done anything for us, and they never will!!!
