Jahmal Cole who runs a nonprofit group in Chicago Illinois called "My Block, My Hood, My City" asked for 10 volunteers to shovel snow for the elderly since Jahmal claimed that he had received requests from many senior citizens to shove show from the driveways of their home this month. However 120 volunteers showed up to assist Jahmal to shovel snow from the sidewalks from 50 houses where elderly people live in the Chicago neighborhoods. To make this story even sweeter, many people who do not live in the Chicago area made donations to the non profit group that Jahmal is in charge of.

That is what bothers me of the image of Chicago being a gangster city.
