It was McFadden who lead an emotion charged rally against violence in the wake of a September killing which left a mother who intervened in a dispute involving her daughter stabbed to death at the hands of a gang of girls. It was McFadden who followed through on a pledge to walk the streets of the n neighborhood where it happened every night for six consecutive weeks to knock on doors looking for clues.
In recent years, he has also spearheaded the city's youth curfew initiative, and launched a public campaign against the so called "no snitching" policy which he says pervades certain city neighborhoods and makes it harder for police to solve violent crime.
Now McFadden has made a pledge which even those who know him well might call bold. He is promising that he will personally provide armed protection for any witness willing to come forward, and identify the killers of Latasha Shaw, the mother killed at the busy intersection of Dewey and Driving Park Avenues on September 29th.
