Last week I wrote a piece on the disparities that do exist, and when I look at what is happening in Chicago, I see the gap growing ever larger.

Ask yourself and be truthful: would this be happening in affluent neighborhoods? The answer is no.
Policing is not equal because the most vulnerable populations are often treated like criminals. When law enforcement agencies need to make their stats, they hunt in those neighborhoods:
Serial killers are often not caught for years if they hunt in poor under-served populations, the victims are often not considered victims, especially if they are for example prostitutes.
My point is this, more American are being killed in one of our major cities than American in our current war zones; this should be a state of emergency!
The disparities continue, justice is for the wealthy it seems…
