King Solomon, Chicago Violence, Jobs Disease? Post Ten
Are lack of opportunity and jobs the core reasons for Chicago’s Violence Disease?
A Chicago Tribune seasoned reporter on February 7, 2017 wrote in a column titled, Even for Reporters, Sad Tales Too Much to Bear, and made this statement.
“The city’s violence is a symptom of a deeper disease plaguing some neighborhoods on the South and West sides — namely a lack of jobs and opportunities in communities that once buzzed with skilled and unskilled labor.”
In My Opinion
Yes, I believe most people will agree the lack of job opportunities is a weight variable that adds to the “disease” of Chicago Violence. However, there is another “disease” that I believe adds a far greater weight to the variables diagnosis for the core reason of Chicago violence according to another article.
If interested, read the articles in the Sources below and decide what you believe to be the greater core variable reasons for Chicago Violence.
