In his Inauguration speech Mayor Rahm Emanuel lined out PUBLIC SAFETY as his SECOND priority. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe the murder of Terrance Boyd is the 1st murder under the Mayor Rahm Emanuel administration. So how will Mayor Emanuel and his administration respond to VIOLENCE in Chicago? How will his public safety team respond to Chicago's underworld and the pulse of communities such as: Austin, Lawndale, Garfield Park, Little Village, Pilsen, Humboldt Park, Roseland, Englewood, Wild 100's, etc?
Will Mayor Emanuel use the full weight of his office and his resourceful connections to President Barack Obama to address crime in Chicago, or will poor and disenfranchised youth in Chicago continue to murder one another as a result of POVERTY and BLIGHTED communities?
The reality remains, its survival of the fittest! Crack money is slow and we're still in a RECESSION.... Cats in the Hood are murdering the competition, its just that plan and simple. Please understand I'm not insinuating Terrance Boyd was murdered in such fashion; however, unless SUMMER JOBS are provided for youth things aren't going to get any better!
As a former drug dealer born in POVERTY I understand what makes neighborhoods and communities such as the above I fore mentioned tick. Only those who stood on street corners selling crack, stuffing bags, shooting at rivals understand what it feels like! Only those who sold so much crack to the degree they couldn't sleep for fear of missing 1st - 5th Public Aid money understand the pulse of the streets! Only those who had on the same clothes for 3 days selling crack cocaine 24/7 understand what makes the hood tick! Only those who are fatherless as they look into the eyes of their poverty stricken mothers as she explains why there wont be dinner understands the heartbeat of the hood!
This is a Socio-economic problem! This is HELL on EARTH! This is being screwed in this life and the next as youth in poor and disenfranchised neighborhoods and communities sell drugs, commit crimes, go to jail, and or are murdered on the streets looking at the sky, closing their eyes wondering will GOD forgive my sins or is hell my destiny? The Police then arrives and breaks out the body bag, as the Fire Department breaks out their water hoses and wash cerebellum, blood, and brains of hopeless youth down the sewer!
What is the mentality of someone who would kill a 16 year old!?! On the Streets there are no moral absolutes, whats right today becomes wrong tomorrow and vice versa! On the Streets each Gang and or Nation has its own laws, orders, and constitutions that supersedes the outside Society at large! On the Streets there is no fear of death because death is around the corner and hell is on Earth in the person of daily poverty and disenfranchisement, which means hell continues to enlarge herself (Isaiah 5:14) KJV!
Only those whom have experienced life in the hood and have been redeemed from such life has the Master's Grip needed to bring about positive change! This is why I continue to do what I do, this is why I continue to push Tha Movement University as we remain United In Peace!
