    YOU ALL KNOW that the BIGGEST part of of the cause of all this violence is NO JOBS, and little LARGE ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT throughout the South Side!

    R A H M (Our Mayor) has it within HIS POWER to EASILY create 10,000 New Permanent Jobs on the South Side — BUT HE W O N ' T…..

    Not " HE C A N ' T " — The Mayor C O U L D (Easily), but The Mayor " W O N ' T " –
    and Black People continue to DIE because of it EVERY SINGLE DAY…….

    And WHY won't Mr. Mayor Emanuel create those 10,000 New Jobs on the South Side:

    P O L I T I C S ! ! ! Letting your Children Die………

    I wish I could talk to Andrew Holmes about this, please contact me if you should read this Mr. Holmes.
