COOK COUNTY COMMISSIONER DISCUSSES GUN VIOLENCE WITH RESIDENTS

“Someone told me ‘people are being shot in the morning in broad daylight and it’s not even curfew hours.’ But I said there are a lot of young people being shot after curfew, he said, adding, “someone’s child is actually pulling that trigger…someone’s child is involved in the violence that’s occurring in our streets. Maybe that particular child is seeking love that he didn’t get from his home so if we tell our children we love them, then that might help keep them out of the system.”
