The people that made that shit didn't do so to "Save Lives". It's exploitive and problematic

Also the idea that women abstaining from sex would stop murders is offensive and a slap in the face to any mother that lost a child here

You don't do any work with the children of Chicago, You don't live here, you've never watched someone die here. Don't tell me to be calm
