  1. I hope that the Bellwood Police Department capture the perpetrator that did this horrible shooting. I didn’t know that Bellwood is having major issues with the gun violence.

    Q:) So…what did the Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity Peace March that took place in July 2017 was all about? It really didn’t make a huge difference, because it was treating the symptoms, and not really treating the cause of the gun violence.

  2. Shooters don’t care about peace marches, if’ you’re willing to go out shooting people there’s something wrong with your state of mind to begin with.

    1. TOM: I totally agree with what you typed. I was just stating about the peace march that the Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity that IL State Rep. Emanuel “Chris” Welch did in July. It was treating symptoms and not really treating the root cause of the gun violence epidemic that is happening in Maywood and spreading towards Bellwood.
