NRATV: People of Chicago Speaking Out

This morning on NRATV, Grant Stinchfield opened his show with a clip from MSNBC, in which a disheartened Chicago citizen spoke to Chris Hayes about his frustration with Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel.

"You could put 100,000 police officers on the street, but that will not reduce violence in the city of Chicago," the man said. "Police are only there to react. You have to put money into prevention."

The man went on to express that Mayor Rahm Emanuel "does not care about black people."

Stinchfield agreed with the disgruntled citizen, saying that society needs to "change the narrative" to "get back to proactive policing."

Founder of Black Guns Matter, Maj Toure, joined Stinchfield via Skype to add his two cents on the state of violence in Chicago. Toure will soon return to Chicago as part of his 2017 city tour with his organization.

"I don't think Mr. Emanuel is respective of the citizens who are literally telling him 'we as your constituency, this is not working' and I think that living in the ivory tower, you don't have the pulse of the people anymore," Toure said.

Toure went on to explain that Black Guns Matter doesn't "only care about black people," but that black people as a whole are disenfranchised in Chicago. 

"I think they make it just about race to keep us divided," Toure said.

Stinchfield airs live on NRATV weekdays at the top of the hour from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. ET.
