The city of Chicago is welcoming the help of Min. Louis Farrakhan in the fight to clear the streets of Chicago of it’s spike in violence.
“Whatever we can do to help stop violence, I’m for it — no matter who it comes from. Just like CeaseFire. They have ex-offenders helping to stop the violence. It doesn’t matter, as long as we can stop people from getting killed,” Ald. Walter Burnett told the Chicago Sun-Times.
“I don’t agree with some of [Farrakhan’s] statements. I don’t agree with everything everybody does. But, I do agree with people who are trying to help us save lives.”
Ald. Leslie Hairston says that she is “in regular conversation” with Farrakhan and the Nation of Islam to find ways to curb the violence in the city.
“They are extremely well-organized. They are known for their discipline. That brings attention to the community,” Hairston said.
“Any group that is willing to do something to help fight the violence — they’re welcome.”
