    I really donf't get it. "Safe Passage" ways on routes to school and the city spent $8 million to hire people to walk kijds to school because of gang violence.

    If these were Asian, Irish or Jewish neighborhoods and kids couldn't get to school, there would be about 200 "missing" gang members by the end of the week.

    It is really sad what is happening in Chicago. Violent gangs are out of control in the poor neighborhoods and the homicide rate is among the highest in the US. Yet many people in Chicago keep reelecting the political party of horribly failed urban policies- the democrats. Go figure.

    I see it as CNN really desperate for some counter-programming of the news shows, and failing miserably.
