Violence is increasing at new highs in some inner city communities. In cities like Chicago the number of deaths due to violent crime has reached peaks like never before. Unfortunately, the methodologies utilize to eliminate these crimes have been quite ineffective and because of this communities live in terror. This terror is not only caused by the so-called criminals but it is also caused by overzealous law enforcement officers.
Understanding the methodologies to move a community that’s plagued with violence from the youth requires dynamic innovation and sincere efforts. This innovation extends to vocational rehabilitation, job creation, and for elders in the community to take the place of their rightful position. Continuous incarceration with no rehabilitation is just a perpetuation of the injustice that victimizes the inner city community as these individuals will once be released to the same community they committed their crimes in. Which highlights it definitely takes a village to raise a child.
Institution building in the inner city community is necessary like never before in these disadvantaged areas, including an understanding of the mind state of these youth. The book “The Rejuvenation: Overcoming the False Reality,” provides the essentials for understanding the youth in the inner city community.
