Warning Graphic Content: My loyal Viewers we have arrived at #2 I call this video, Walking the Razor. The Razor runs between the cops and the gangs and don’t want to fall to either side because it will slit you up the middle. This video takes you closer to the ROOT cause of this nightmare, hang on for the ride it’s going to get bumpy. Share the shit out of this video, I put all I had into this one. Thanks to all of you for your support and well wishes. This episode has a large section about the Chicago Police, and Community Relations. Next Sunday #1 I call this one, THE CAUSE,,,,, caught between a rock and a hard place, this one will be released in about a week to ten days, still working on it. Ya Know I accomplished all this with no education, 8th grade is furthest I went, can you imagine what I could have accomplished in life had I got one?????
The Garfield Park neighborhood is home to Garfield park, it is the oldest of the three West Side parks and has one of the most beautiful field houses and has the single largest conservatories in the United States.
Most of the old sandstone buildings scattered throughout the neighborhood have religious markers on them, these are a reminder of the original Jewish history of the area. Garfield Park was also home to the 4,000-seat Marbro Theater which was among the city’s largest.
This video also covers a little history on the Chicago Police Department and touches on the relationship between the residents and the department over the years.
This neighborhood is in a state of disrepair and has quite a few abandoned businesses spread out throughout the area, it looks as though this neighborhood has been ignored and basically forgotten. I have noticed many residents packing up with moving vans and fleeing this depressed crime ravaged neighborhood.
The population of east and west Garfield park was at its height in the 1960s with 100,000 residents, over a 50-year period these two neighborhoods lost nearly 60.000 residents.
This year in the Garfield Park neighborhood, 260, people have been shot and, 36, have been killed and 224, have been wounded. These stats rank Garfield Park at number 2 on the 2017 list of the most Violent neighborhoods in Chicago.
Attention: YouTube adds, these videos 1-10, along with the trailer should not have adds in them, these videos are being done specifically to call attention to the Violence in Chicago, I do not want to make money off of this ongoing tragedy Period…….. Thank You
