Violence In Chicago



President Obama was disappointed that the Olympic Committee decided not to choose Chicago as the venue for the 2016 Olympics. As President Obama was formerly a successful “community organizer” in Chicago, this defeat must have been especially disappointing.

Part of the reason that Chicago may not have been selected is due to how Violence has stricken much of the city. Just a couple of days ago a Chicago student videotaped a murder of an honor student.

(As a side note, it seems to be especially dangers to be a Black honor student. In the stories linked below, all the victims happened to be honor students.)
