Chicago Gang Members Hold Press Conference to Criticize Police

If you live long enough, you do indeed see everything:


Conservative Vice Lords? I’d hate to see the liberal Vice Lords:

At a news conference organized by self-identified gang members Thursday morning, several speakers complained that police and city officials do not respect them, and that the only way to curb violence is to provide jobs and improve their community.

The men who spoke out Thursday morning blamed poverty, drugs and a lack of jobs for the problems in the streets. They also said that Chicago Police Supt. Jody Weis’ meeting with so-called gang leaders was a waste of time.

I thought electing Obama was going to put an end to crime and joblessness.

What’s the difference between the street gang press conference and a Pelosi/Reid press conference? The street gang members didn’t lie nearly as much.
