‘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.

    I wonder if any of these moms are getting on the cases of some of the other moms fathers.

    If they truly wanted to stop violence they’d sew up their gaping, flapping vaginas.

    Why don’t Korean moms ever need to ‘patrol’ their neighbourhoods?

      If they really wanted to do some good they would carry sharp scissors and do some serious neutering of the the real problem, the human male (doesn’t matter what color.

        Guess it’s too late to carve off the testes that brought you to this horrible place.

      • BillyHW

        I’m sorry but could you please remind me which woman it was that played golf on the moon?

    This is a step in the right direction.

    I wish them success.

    Hmm, not exactly Curtis Sliwa, but you have to do with what you have.

    It’s about time,,,just several decades too late. BTW, warn the young black girls to not put out, the boys to keep it in their pants.

    It isn’t the mothers that are the problem it is the lack of fathers. Black men need to take responsibility for their action and be a father to their children. The welfare culture destroyed the black family.

      Naive and silly comment. We need FEWER fathers, not more of them.

      • DMB

        We need more men to take responsibility for their actions. If they want sex and not have any children use birth control. Same goes to women. The government should not be obligated to through welfare raise a generation of children and become substitute parents. If anything we need FEWER unwanted children and in order to achieve that we need proper family planning (not through abortion). http://www.reuters.com/article/2007/06/14/us-usa-fathers-idUSN0419185720070614
