‘Moms on Patrol’ fight Chicago violence

In Chicago’s South Side, shooting deaths are all too common, especially during the summer. That’s why a group of local moms clad in pink have started “patrols” in the troubled neighbourhood of Englewood, providing advice (“pull up your pants!”), food and help as an anti-violence strategy. Englewood has seen many less shootings than usual and even the Chicago police have admitted the moms played a role in that drop.
