I live in Chicago. Several IL politicians in Springfield, one of them Black, have opined about employing the National Guard to combat gang-related violence in Chicago. Many Black folks feel that this is racist and will likely create an environment akin to Nazi Germany. I don't think it would be THAT extreme. They would simply assist law enforcement in disassembling highly organized gangs and crime. Many experts attribute Chicago's violent culture to corruption among its government and gang cohesion. It is said that Chicago gangs today are more organized than in other cities and therefore difficult to combat. I will say that Chicago as a whole isn't as bad as the media paints it to be. Most of the crime is limited to select areas.....
