The mass shootings that occurred over the 2016 Christmas Holiday Weekend in Chicago, Illinois http://www.msn.com/en-us/news/crime/a-violent-christmas-in-a-violen... was sad and painful for those of us who care deeply about our humanity. The loss of any human life is sad and must not be ignored any longer. I offer a combination of ideas, if implemented, will create a model for addressing and solving gun violence in Urban Cities. Leaders solve problems without fear or excuses. Politicians do the opposite. To implement this proposed solution will require leaders.

Proposed Solutions:
The City of Chicago should outlaw all criminal gangs. Creating a mandatory 20-year sentence, if anyone is convicted of a crime, while affiliated, associated or a member of a criminal gang.

Allow community members to vote for a Non-Lethal Bullet Initiative that outlaws the use of Lethal Bullets, while allowing the ownership of guns. It should include an exception for licensed hunters with hunting rifles.

Create (8) Eight New Civic Associations for (Ex-Gang Members) with new colors, symbols, literature, mission of community service, and goals that promote family, harmony, peace, knowledge, community and respect for law.

Hire or Release from Prison Reformed Original Gangsters (OGs) to lead and run the new civic associations with a mission to provide Rights Of Passage for Manhood and Womanhood training, and mentoring for ex-gang members.

Use Ex-Ray Technology to detect weapons on individuals using public transportation, walking on the streets, or inside their vehicles. Offer a weapons Buy-Back Program.

Use Electronic Wrist Bans (e-Ban) Technology for convicted felons to monitor their association and track geolocation, which would aid law enforcement in solving gun violence related crimes.

Release to the public the names of individual gang members who are likely to be murdered or imprisoned due to their criminal history, so that their family, friends and other professionals can encourage them to join one of the new civic associations and live a productive and healthy life.

Create four training facilities in Chicago to train new members with Social Skills, Life Skills, Problem Solving Skills and Employment Skills for manufacturing, construction, technology, entertainment and entrepreneurial professions.

Use Private/Public Funding from Professional Sports Teams and Players to raise the initial seek capital by offering tax incentives. Allow residents to add $0.02 sales tax, $1.00 Property Tax, $0.10 Public Transportation Tax and a $1 Professional Sports Ticket Fee. Twenty Percent (20%) of the funds will be allocated for Administration and Eight Percent (80%) of the funds would be distributed equally between the 8 New Civic Associations and all funds will be made public in real-time over each Civic’s Association’s Website. The State, County and City Auditors would provide oversight, auditing and accountability of all fund expenditures.

Where there is a WILL to solve this problem, there will always be a WAY, but where there is NO WILL, there will always be EXCUSES and FEAR! We must have enough compassion, love and empathy for the suffering of others humans to demand leaders end the Cycle of Violence in Chicago. I welcome the opportunity to meet with those ready to lead without Fear or Excuses.

I am saddened to hear of these latest acts of violence. 

I like all of these suggestions except the first one.  Outlawing any group or organisation goes against the Constitutional right of assembly.  Rather, I would seek to transform the nature of the gangs. 

I would add, include training in NVC (Nonviolent Communication) for all those involved in these initiatives. 

Thank you Zhana for your feedback.

Respect,

Brother Campbell

Your're very welcome, Brother Campbell.  We must work together to make this type of incident a thing of the past. 

Wishing you a happy Kwanzaa and a happy, healthy and prosperous new year.
