a rest the. baltimore shares his own story trying to convince leon to stay away from getting. people on the block this community. you gotta do what. you gotta think of yourself as turner. was cut all the way he. gathered i went to school. and this was the gas that was served for when they took that they are patently. i knew i had a second. if i could do so playing today well with that we're with you all. keep. reading old. john. is not. some of the guys he prolly hate all of you take oh come back at you
again. you got a notice on the phone from up. leon and his family are afraid of what could happen the presumed shooter was arrested then killed in prison. baltimore will have to negotiate a truce with the rival faction to break the infernal vention cycle or whatever cliquey is and in a round. they not what they say they. because there's no way possible you can just stop. now from one of his buddies even go to main issue is he could be somebody else is generation is just like the wow wow west. this generation's codes certainly recall the wild west like leaving this pair of shoes to signal that a gang member was killed in the street. ceasefire says it has defused two hundred twenty three conflicts in six months but the organization's effects and this is
hard to gauge reporter frank mayne of the chicago sun times won a prestigious award for a series of articles he wrote in crime is also investigating these unusual street mediators there are numerous people in cease fire who are still continuing their criminal activities while they were also working for a cease fire and doing this anti-violence work and we found six or seven people who had been. convicted in federal court or were facing serious federal charges. relating to drug activity and gangs and criminal activity we were just trying to to . to demonstrate i guess that there's a risk to the strategy as well as you know benefits to it. and yet this past july the city of chicago decided than over one million dollars to cease fire to expand the area served by the group. guns are used in eighty percent
of the murders committed in chicago but this ultra sensitive topic wasn't even broached in the presidential campaign because every us citizen has the right to bear arms talking about gun control is a sure fire way to loose spokes exasperated south side residents spend their saturday demonstrating outside the areas targeted gun shop calling for tighter gun control laws farther flake areas flanked by a weighty ally jesse jackson a famous figure in the civil rights movement jackson made to run for the presidency in the one nine hundred eighty s. as a democratic party candidate. yeah well reverend jackson this is victory to close us the biggest sales they're closed down right now so we're right. he's going to broaden and we. think he's the worst of the worst in a country that was a thirty five hundred seventy of some of us in one shop less than yes. it.
was there to me look close. to me look both and they just about making money it's all about. that karl. i love my prime minister and it's not the marriage in the black community the guns have been strained back i have to cinch it guns have been traced but. this is the third time they've targeted this shot by the already been. at chucks why does the n.r.a. and gun manufacturers fight hard on simple gun registration when you register cars one reason money to protect about what. they invest heavily in the politicians. they control walls and gracious and we got to take the n.r.a. got we're not afraid of the n.r.a. and their plan. to keep them guns off the streets chicago officials buy them back help collect them they hand over one hundred
dollars per gun no questions asked. in late june the police superintendent invited reporters to meet him at a secret warehouse five thousand five hundred guns of every caliber were turned in . it's a huge contributing factor comes close because the ease by which people can obtain finally being obviously in chicago you can't do as much damage with a golf club scene people do damage with golf clubs if you can with the fire it's a political issue in this country and any time that somebody raises see issue of gun control the immediately get attacked by special interests. needed the police nor cease fire have managed to curb for very long the bloodshed plaguing chicago day in and day out. and the violence has an upper crust areas like
hyde park where the obama family has its own. retired army officer ruth thomas goes there every day to work as a school security guy. from the area is a very built up area. here. the president. nice neighborhood not to cry. i parks public high school brought in an army veterans group veterans of the iraq and afghanistan wars like rules protect students around the school perimeter. just. to survive go to these folks. nothing is freddy you know some attorneys here's
a. very bright. school. at two thirty to school weekends for two thousand three hundred students the twenty five member of veteran squad takes up positions outside their job watching over a half mile of sidewalk looking for any signs of trouble and keeping the high schoolers safe. hello ladies. this is patrol type information so i right now i see these three people plus the two across the street so no one is left alone. and i guess you can say just about everybody's assess but . no been military trained for that you trained to spot. four hundred thousand students attend chicago public school many of them want back home it can be dangerous like in this area where two rival gangs claim territory
from the outside it looks peaceful but when you're actually living here is that even if you don't know to be walking behind you or my. god that's a wrong crowd and they don't like what i got and it's now walking home and this guy just ran like directly in front of me and my friend and just shot my feet away from me my ears were bleeding it was crazy it being around here to school to use. i don't see every day so with him be on the corners of a better chance of someone catching a column police or something more quickly than which would normally have with no one being there to stop it before it happens you get that feeling that you're busy for then you usually are in the balance has gone down a bit and so ok i'm going to give them a safe passage. home. and disperse them if they really come up but if they get real rowdy. we have to call the police because we don't have the authority to detain
anyone without me we can make sure they're good as far as here but once they get beyond it's more that's their own there. are new affected dissuasion number of events a dense around this school has dropped sharply over the past two years the city plans to expand the program to other areas. but the best way to escape the violence is to get a way to move out of the south side by going to college for instance but you have to be rich to go to university a four year degree can cost one hundred twenty five thousand dollars martin is such an angel would need of this studying occupational therapy the former soldier got the army to pay for his education. from the from the goddess. but we thought it. was just. out of
the situation and out of the out of five. this is not really. but for most youngsters in chicago's south side college seems totally out of reach tutors like ronald hires are working to boost their self-confidence ronald run who's the african-american resource center monitoring and assisting students like martina's. a lot of students on account of the day before classes. for the summer right like he always was it took like maybe he wanted to do this i want to learn it so little time if we don't want to see you know we're not working to see you fail we look we're going to see you succeed so far so good you know man i suppose for major and one day for sure you'll never be without work saying yeah. you know i think courage a lot of the young men did i meet on the in the community and out on the streets if you're on the block there's someone else you need to be it's not in hand and on the
block benefactor is a block that waits for you and is called a sale block. to avoid the president many englewood residents like martinez save up their money and move to call more neighborhoods martina's went to dalton an hour from downtown chicago and i just didn't want to become one at all the testings i felt like. i have to be here for my family and i'm a soft family is ok i feel. martina's flood the streets of inglewood but the guns caught up with him this time it wasn't the gangs just twenty two year old sister. shown in this photo was killed by a policeman on march twenty first. graders. it's
a big emptiness they go. to . your t.v. it's bizarre to see it more than the propaganda film that is the state sponsor of russia today programme just words to be announced right telling them in this present time is just ridiculous not an answer to my question. john is not happy to support their safety and sometimes their lives all over the wall to bring people stories none the propaganda channels don't want you to see and we told the post some. meat.
blasted away and as we saw after world war i want a bunch of european countries just jump in the middle east and draw lines all over the map and say oh he's in the new countries we don't care about the history culture well last for twenty four days and you end up with islamic state or isis. dramas that can't be ignored to. stories others who refuse to notice. the food since changing the world lights never. come to picture of today's you know i phone to and from roads to blow.
it up please don't get me. and it was another only. brother sister relationship like father and daughter there's a specialty that. they haven't really. formed us a clue oh wait they tell us is this on the investigation. the shooting caused a stir martin it's a sister was standing in the street with friends the off duty police officer pulled up who's house and got into an argument with one of the men feeling threatened the policeman took out his revolver and opened fire as the officers house right there with the light on. the spot while my sister. was found.
the stab i think about this every day i still got the images flashing in my head because i don't know who. said the two men have never met the police officer was reassigned to desk duty but wasn't detained he claims he fired in self-defense to the brother just before he. was ok with that hit your head and maybe in a circular shape in ten turn of the campaign taking place just off the camera and beth me first and martinez is about to. i hope by now you know the truth. well i can't talk about the case court i have a court that man a man did something to me that day i can't discuss it right but there were
witnesses there that man tried to kill me ok i saved my life. and i saw the man that i intended to shoot i saved my life i would of been at the police ok i saved my life unfortunately this sister was standing in the back. she did not deserve to get shot. she did not deserve. my soul is clear. he says he was threatened but no gun was ever found the case will go to court in two years. the violence brought in chicago is tearing apart families the residents of englewood and other south side neighborhoods spend their nights in fear the police are under heavy pressure and overworked but the root of the gang problem lies elsewhere it's a deep seated evil the american social ladder is broken there are no jobs in englewood and no public investments the education system is in shambles. if you ask
me are the schools good there. and you can ask me is the quality of housing their good no. but if you ask me i think are we spending adequate government dollars trying to stop by on their on the law enforcement side i would say yes so. you have a d. in the federal side of the f.b.i. there you go the chicago police there you have ceasefire there you have all these organizations there so and you have church groups and social roups and all sorts of people trying to. make things better there and doesn't seem to do much good unfortunately. inglewood residents have taken upon themselves to fight the bloodshed that is the language of the streets here trying to give local youngsters a chance to fulfill their dreams and build a brighter future twenty four year old derrick took up boxing and despite the risks
he jogs through the neighborhood it's like let's say favorite. three block radius. i'm good but i also discovered. this but. you forgot to ask who you are. is my stuff. because a life in jeopardy. i'm not today. you're accused to be a street fighter he liked and he was good he caught the eye of a trainer sally coaches junior boxing she set up shop there twelve years ago with a goal in mind. this is how they get their attention i believe it was more exciting than this kind of like like in spite of. self. evident
by so many self stick with their. bullshit is taking place so it's a way to get their money you know and sometimes and cylinder not even talking about g.-d's bts emcees you know in two weeks what it was to my talk about it but you know what i mean but we don't care you know what i mean they're not best then let's go get in your self-esteem you know like. what was coming hey you know it's not the first or some didn't with the community or also the community or personal problem or it just it's a way to get out. and plus me being around these cues north just this is moving through a good time and hopefully one day. the champion can come and give back to marking the so no erve thing i'll do is like it's a purpose but you know it's a walk in and go to the. dreams of becoming a champion and others have made it. not long ago murray park was called murder
