Sept. 6, 2016 after a violent holiday weekend in Chicago. Eddie Johnson part of police department tells reporters in front of the police headquarters, why he thinks people are walking around shooting people during the Memorial day weekend. “Impoverished neighborhoods, people without hope do these kinds of things,” he said. “You show me a man that doesn’t have hope, I’ll show you one that’s willing to pick up a gun and do anything with it.” Many people have died during Memorial day weekend over the year of shootings, in my opinion people should just stop with the guns and killing. We should just honor the one who have died for us and to be here alive and in America safe.”
