“No more killing” is one of the phrases repeated numerous times in this powerful PSA by Joakim Noah and his Noah’s Arc Foundation. The PSA features Derrick Rose and other Chicagoans asking people of the great city to “Stand Up.”
So how bad is the violence in Chicago. At least 13 people have been shot since Friday afternoon including a 13 year old and a 3 year old. Last weekend, the city had 47 shooting victims including an 11 year old girl who was killed by a stray bullet while sitting in a bedroom. Earlier this month on fourth of July weekend, 82 people were shot and 14 killed in Chicago.
