Last year, 516 people were murdered within the city limits of Chicago. Local politicians vowed to curb this violence in 2013. However, as with a majority of New Year's resolutions that were made, this one was broken as well.

In the first ten days of 2013, there were 18 homicides. That would put Chicago at a record-breaking pace of 657 murders for this year.

The strategy of allowing Blacks and Latinos to kill each other while looking only to primarily protect affluent neighborhoods within the city of Chicago is no longer working. The cronyism within the Chicago Police Department must be eliminated.

Real solutions must be made to end the urban warfare within the city limits of Chicago. Instead of merely talking about gun control for the past decade, politicians must really do something about taking guns off of the streets. Instead of turning a blind eye to the Black and Latino neighborhoods, everyone must look to help out their fellow man no matter what pigmentation they are. People should be more outraged about how the youth in these urban areas are forced to turn to drugs and crime because they are not given the opportunities for a better life in comparison to children living in affluent communities.

Choose to no longer be callous to those who live in poor neighborhoods. Help to stop the violence in these urban communities before it spills out all throughout the country.
