Gang Members Hold Press Conference to Blast Police Policies

Only in Chicago (*head shakes*)...

"At a news conference organized by self-identified gang members Thursday morning, several speakers complained that police and city officials do not respect them, and that the only solution to improving violence is providing jobs and improving their community.

"You say it's gangs drugs and guns. We say we need jobs, opportunities and contracts," said Reginald Akeem Berry Sr., who identified himself as a former gang member "That's the resolution."

They are taking issue with Weis' strategy of meeting with gang leaders and warning them of serious consequences if violence continues.
