    Let's keep removing God from our school rooms, courts, country sides, etc. and nobody knows why things are getting worse. The smarter we get, the stupider we are becoming!

    We need better education, community involvement, more police and the national guard to hit the streets daily and nightly.

    We need to do this for one year str8 until we get results and our streets cleaned up.

    These thugs, and they ARE thugs, strut around the schools, streets, intimidating, threatening and terrorizing the "good kids" and naturally, they keep quiet. The thugs have no clue the lives they are destined to lead, will go nowhere while the "good kids" have dreams, a future, goals, thanks to their parents instilling better lives ahead. I'm not smart enough to know the answers to violence, but it's not just Chicago, it's everywhere there's poverty, drugs and poor parenting.

    God forbid that guns are harder to buy! GUNS are easy to buy in ALL our cities, so WHY are we surprised by the VIOLENCE?

    How many of these gang members were born to stable two parent families, where both at least graduated from high school and didn’t give birth in their teens? How many have parents actively involved in their lives – communicating with teachers, demanding excellence, making them a priory? Government programs are no substitute for mom and dad. They have to step up to the plate and assume responsibility for their children.

    Iam from Indiana ,and have been watching the stories on the violence in chicago, and else where in are country ,and my thought is that instead of deploying 40,000 of our troops to other countries to protect there streets lets start at home, and deploy our troops to our streets to help make them safe for our children ,so they can make it safely to school ,and to be able to play outside lets show those gang members that they dont own the streets, and make it safe for All americans to be able to walk down any street with out fear of gang members shooting us because they think we should not be on there street we should start at home let show a strong military presence on our streets and take the gang memebers and drug dealers out of our society and make it safe again... thank you

    Chicago should not get more help now just because the President favors them.

    Why is Chicago being the only one that is being looked at now that Obama is from there. There are child violence through out the US that need to be addressed and if money is going to Chicago then more money needs to be going to every city to help better the children’s lives in involvement.
