Curbing Chicago Violence Project Editorial (Part One)

Posted on Updated on

Greer Front Banner 2016
While Gun violence affects society in many ways, including higher medical costs, reductions in quality of life because of fear of gun violence and stresses on the criminal justice system. The United States has the highest rate of gun-related injuries among developed countries, as well as the highest rate of gun ownership. Psychologists and other public health scientists are working to develop effective methods to reduce gun violence, but political opposition has created barriers to government support for  research.

Chicago has been plagued with violence in April 2016 alone there were 36 Murders
 
However, when curbing Chicago violence according to our partners who agree that all homicides-all murders represent a degree of human suffering – direct and indirect – that cannot be ignored. Attention must be paid to each life lost, not merely a selected but-our goal is to tell the story of every murder in the city, so that together we might fight the tendency to view homicides as just another rising or falling number, like mortgage rates or batting averages but the human story of tragic human lives lost, that adds weight down hard on an already struggling community.
 
In the days ahead it is the intent of http://www.oneworld01.com to help bring a sharp focus to the growing homicide level in Chicago, IL  it is our attention that if we can’t make the killing stop-we want to bring justice to the families, when that doesn’t work we want to help with the healing process. Also if the gun violence level in Chicago can come down then we can replicate the steps anywhere in the world.
 
There were 36 murders this past April, one more than in April 2015, the Chicago Police Department said this past Sunday. In the first four months of 2016, there have been 175 murders—51 in January, 43 in February, 45 in March and 36 in April, the Chicago Sun-Times is reporting.
 
The final homicide of the month was a man killed he got into a shootout with a teenager Saturday afternoon in the South Side Washington Park neighborhood.

Over the next few weeks Freedom First International (We Rise Above Bullets) , The Violence Interrupters in partnership with the Guilty in Innocence Project other community groups-will begin serious conversations and initiatives around Chicago and Northwest Indiana on how to “stop the gun violence in Chicagoland” Please advise via inbox or comments section if you like to join this dialog or facilitate. Put the guns down Chicago!

In Mermoriam

We want to end with a photo memorial of all the lives lost to the tragedy Gun Violence.
