CeaseFire earned national attention as a result of the praised documentary called the "Interrupters."
I thoroughly enjoyed watching it. However, there have been quite a few individuals that have been convicted of crimes while working for CeaseFire.
From possessing unlicensed firearms to crimes involving narcotics. This group receives state, county, and federal funding and is about to receive
direct funding from the City of Chicago.
Too me, I am beginning to believe this group is full of jackals? Former criminals appear to be using their employment and involvement in the CeaseFire
program to provide cover from law enforcement to engage in criminal activity. We are committing our tax dollars to a program that is supposed to
prevent violent crime, but it seems to be fomenting it? What the hell! Crime has gone up in the city since this time last year, and there was a
whopping 40 shootings over the Memorial Day weekend.
To be fair, I enjoyed the documentary and supported what this group was doing, but after reading the article? I have my doubts. More crooks turning a
good thing into excrement!
