We recently reported a couple days ago that Rev. Jesse Jackson stated his concern for Chicago to receive federal help to compress the violence there, and now President-Elect Donald Trump is echoing the same thing. However, If you’ve been paying close attention to Trump’s campaign while he was running against Hillary, violence in urban communities was one of the things he promises he’ll fix. Well, I guess he’s making good on his word.
Chicago murder rate is record setting – 4,331 shooting victims with 762 murders in 2016. If Mayor can’t do it he must ask for Federal help!

Now there’s no time or date in place when these actions will manifest, but Chicagoans in the black community should be prepared to see something they’re not used to as we said in the previous article.
