6-year-old shot, killed in Chicago

Brooke talks with Executive Director of CeaseFire Illinois, Tio Hardiman, about escalated violence and homicides in Chicago.  6-year-old Aliyah Shell was murdered March 17 in her 'Little Village' neighborhood while playing on her front porch–the very same weekend at least 41 others were shot in Chicago.

    The real tragedy is that most will not learn. I don't watch TV, it has a way of making people we trust anyway to be extremely stupid. I don't have any kids, I want to move someplace in the world where people aren't so dumb. This sort of thing was a problem when I was a kid years ago...

    I hope the family can have the rest of their lives undisturbed by this senseless violence. I also hope that all the innocent boys and girls, infants, adolescents, and adults that are innocent do not get harmed again if they already have, and never if they haven't.

    One more senseless violence from Chicago. Like it or not, Chicago's strict gun laws only make it easier for the "bad guys" to get away with murder. Police officers must carry their duty weapons in the trunks of their cars when off duty. How much sense does that make? I feel sorrow for this little girl and all the other children who are exposed to violence which will only beget more violence.
