    A summit?? What happened to a march? Oh, yes, we have marched so many times and nothing has improved. Perhaps Father Pfleger could put together a march against violence. Oh no, he has done that several times already and nothing improved. Reverend Jackson could call for no more violence. Oh, that's right, he has been doing that for decades and nothing happened. How about Operation Ceasefire? No, we only pay them one million to stop the violence and that doesn't work either. A summit? There you have it, something new and I bet nothing with be improved. I hope I am wrong!

      All this is oportunity for the above to promote themselves and advance their own personal agenda. Their personal assistants, the new media, will enthusiastically assist in carrying out the Summit theatre as entertainment in Chicago.

    Here is just another former gang-banger ("Black Panther") who weasled his way into politics and now has been blessed and has changed his ways….give me a break!

    The point of the summit is to keep placing blame on the Chicago police and basically anyone and everyone for the violence on Chicago's south and west sides….except for the jerks actually causing the violence. Look within Rush and Davis…fix your community!!

  • Who cares

    The problem is gangs and not law biding citizens. Out of all of these murders, how many we're gang related or the the suspect was a gang mener or had some ties to one. That the question that should be ask.
