Former gang leader “Silky Slim” and his organization Stop the Killing Inc. held an anti-violence rally at the McKinley Alumni center Tuesday afternoon.
Hundreds enjoyed free food, fun and entertainment while organizers preached the importance of staying away from drugs, violence and gangs.
Real footage of crime scenes fueled by young people played on a big screen television.
If those images weren't enough to catch visitor’s attention, organizers hoped rolling out a real casket would send a clear message that the violence has to stop.
Tuesday’s event is the eighth year in a row Stop the Killing Inc. has held this type of public rally.
