    the National Guard. Should take that money and it would be a considerable sum. Put it into increased welfare, food stamp, housing and other social service benefits.

    It's the poverty. As for the 11 year old  Robert 'Yummy' Sandifer considering his circumstances, what could one expect.

    Poverty. Get rid of it. Because for one, malnutrition takes it's toll!

    For what it would cost to bring in the National Guard, they could find a way to catch the big dealers who are flooding US Cities with guns and drugs.

    Cut off the main supply and you don't have it on the streets.

    I remember before the world was flooded with guns, really bad drugs, and violence.

    I was 17 in 1967. The world has changed in the US. They brought the war to our streets.

    There's a way to stop it. Clamp down on the big sources, better law enforcement techniques and equipment aimed at the big guys.

    Busting street dealers is limited in effectiveness and they should be treated not punished for non violent drug related crimes.

    Invest in better education, including anti drug and violence training.

    I'm from Hudson County NJ. In Jersey City, NJ, 14 murders since this january. Not counting shootings that didn't end in homicide.

    So sorry about Chicago. A beautiful town.

    I wrote this to try and help the young people.

    They don't call it dope for nothing.

    And another way is to vote in one's own best interests!
