Wallace "Gator" Bradley, Urban Translator

Today, veteran community activists Mark S. Allen and Wallace "Gator" Bradley will continue to reach out to new CAPS Director Ronald
Holt and others to find a way to form some immediate communications to find out what is at the bottom of what is being reported as
"Gang Members Targeting Police Officers." If President Obama can meet with world leaders trying to find peace on the world stage
to stop the violence, then we have got to be able to the local level to meet with street leaders and other street sources to stop whatever
is causing this type of tension that can result in the direct targeting of police for violent acts and now death.
We as a community cannot just watch these tensions continue to boil and NO ONE steps up to at least trying to figure out what is
causing this and do what we can to quell this to save the lives of many innocent people as well as our law enforcement. WE can't go
back to the days when the comments of a former Chicago Police Chief who stated that he now runs "the biggest gang in Chicago,"
and how far that may have gone in planting the seed that there was now war to be fought directly with gangs and police! Far too many
people in gangs and the streets are only acting out their economic desperation, and the answer simply CANNOT be the ambusing and
violent acts against the police. We reach ouit to Ronald Holt because he brings a new level of trust where people in the street trust in
him and will communicate with him in ways that they will not communicate with Police Chief Weis. '
