Communities Must Take Responsibility for Own Violence

This is powerful, and pleasantly surprising. CNN's Anderson Cooper gets an earful from Steve Perry, a CNN Education Contributor, as they discuss the violence that plagues Chicago's neighborhoods. Perry, to his credit, is no sycophant to the Jessie Jacksons and Al Sharptons who believe that government and more money is the solution to violence. "The community has to begin to take full responsibility for the circumstances that are taking place within the community," Perry tells Cooper. Amen, brother, the truth shall set you free.
