After watching the interrupters I was shocked to see how much violence there really was in lower income neighborhoods. What stood out to me that most was how people were sheading blood over a five dollar bag of weed or because someone said something they didn’t like. Mathews said “Words well get you killed.” And he was right. People in these neighborhoods don’t think before they act they just retaliate and even if that meant shooting and ending a young man’s life. It was hard to see all of those young kids getting drug into the street and in the middle of conflicts. If they are trying to cut down on violence then I think they need to stop exposing the young children to it. I do believe that the interrupters are having a positive impact on the children and helping them to not choose the path of violence.
