Diane Lattiker,Founder of Kids Off The Block (KOB) has built a memorial for the many young victims of gun violence, marking the names of each one on small, tombstone like bricks and placing them in rows side by side in a small building at 116th and Michigan street in Chicago. There are already more than 500 names and the list goes on and on as each weekend brings more tragic shootings. A group of mothers whose children have lost their loves to gun violence recently asked President Obama to send some type of Federal help th stop the violence. Ms. Latiker joins us today to discuss the movement to stop the killings, and how community residents and those we have elected to represent us can help.
Leon Panetta argued that for all of Barack Obama’s strengths, he is missing an essential ingredient of leadership. He lacks “fire,” wrote Obama’s former CIA director and Pentagon chief. “The president relies on the logic of a law professor rather than the passion of a leader.”Obama has proved Panetta right again and again during his presidency, but never more dangerously so than with his shoulder-shrug approach to ISIS. Obama called it a “J.V. team” before it started beheading Americans. He said it was “contained” before it attacked Paris. Now he’s calling it “a bunch of killers with good social media.”Ron Fournier
President Obama is tired of all the critics who say his strategy to destroy Islamic State isn't working."The only thing that they're doing is talking as if they're tough," he complained last week. "If folks want to pop off and have opinions about what they think they would do, [they should] present a specific plan."What the rest of us need, Obama counseled, is more patience. "It's going to take time".Obama was right on one count: ?LATimes

Many attended the special premier of Spike Lee's controversial film, Chiraq last night at the Chicago Theater. Today we'll talk to some of the young men and women who viewed the movie and get their perspective: will the film's focus on sex get young people's attention? Is the idea of withholding sex to get a truce between gangs something young women would possibly agree to? Did the film handle the real matter of children shot dead in a serious enough manner? Would you recommend this movie to your friends? Do you think men and women involved in gang violence will be influenced by this film at all
Join us today 5:30 CST as we explore the issue
Can street leaders and their influence be the answer to gun violence in Chicago?
Not everyone thinks the influence of street leaders can solve violence in Chicago, some believe that it can, others question if this is the leadership that the city should seek..
What do you think can the elders and founders of theses groups hurt or help the cause of anti-violence?

Have you had your healthy dose of reality lately?
There are always at least two sides to every story. Have you ever wondered how someone, who saw the same thing you did, walked away telling a vastly different story? Which version was correct? Which one was the REAL story? Actually, both are! It’s just a matter of perspective.
