My name is Vic Maggio I am a citizen Journalist here in Chicago, I am asking for your help to keep Bloody Chicago rolling through the neighborhoods of Chicago documenting the violence in a way no other MEDIA outlet is. About five years ago I set out on a mission to show just how horrific the gun violence in Chicago really is, exposing the history is key to understanding the problem, because without this understanding, the problems cannot be fixed or slowed down.
In 2010 I created, maggionews.com and in 2013 the YouTube Channel BLOODY CHICAGO followed, over the years I have roamed the most violent neighborhoods in Chicago, covering the carnage taking place on the streets. I have been caught in the crossfire three times, the dangers in doing this job are many to say the least. Nobody covers the violence in Chicago quite like I do, no holding back, I call it, as I see it. I have been told I am very outspoken, in fact, a cop once told me there is nothing more dangerous in Chicago then having an opinion like yours. It goes against the status quo.
Unfortunately, YouTube, Facebook and Google would like nothing more than to silence ME and my opinion. They have made it impossible for me to recoup my expenses and to continue, Why? Because what I produce is not family friendly and is a subject most don’t want me covering because in their minds the gun is evil not the people using them, because of this I have no choice but to ASK YOU the PUBLIC for help, I would hate to give up five years of very hard work, because there is still much, much more to do.
YouTube Claims my content is not family friendly and for that reason they do not allow many adds in my videos
