Larry Hoover, Gangster Disciple founder, and Jeff Fort, Black P. Stone founder, have condemned the brutal murder of 9-year-old Tyshawn Lee in South Side Chicago.
Congressman Bobby Rush (D-IL 1st District) visited the two gang leaders at ADMAX prison in Florence, CO, according to ABC 7 Chicago.
“Right now, as I see it, they’re part of the solution, not part of the problem,” Rep. Bobby Rush told ABC 7.
Rush, also a reverend, was in full pastoral garb, when he spoke with Hoover and Fort about Tyshawn’s murder.
“They knew about it and they were appalled by it,” Rush said.
Multiple news outlets are reporting that Tyshawn was caught up in the violence between rival factions of the GDs and Stones.
Hoover and Fort, Rush said, issued a message of peace to the streets.
“Jeff/Malik and Larry said, ‘Use my name. Tell those youngsters to stop the killing,” Rush said.
Rush believes that Hoover and Fort could help curb the violence in the streets of Chicago if they were allow to communicated with the outside.
“They didn’t ask me to move mountains or to use any kind of clout to help them,” Rush said.
Rush was not allowed take photographs or make voice recordings during the visit.
“We cannot continue to allow our community to be wiped out,” Rush said.
Hoover and Malik could go weeks, months, or even years without human contact, according to Charles Thomas of ABC 7 Chicago.
