KILLADEPHIA: CNN Rolls With Kaz & Mac

CNN: Kaz and MacMillan co-founded to help curb gun violence plaguing what is supposed to be the City of Brotherly Love. “I want to put the audience out there in the streets,” Kaz said. “I want them to see what I’m seeing every night in this city: The children watching crime scene investigations night after night, day after day. Anything to disrupt this, marginally disrupt this, we consider a success.” After the July 20 shooting massacre in Aurora, Colorado, GunCrisis estimates there have been at least 55 gunshot victims in Philadelphia, and that number is rising. In March, photojournalist Joe “Kaz” Kaczmarek, left, co-founded to fight Philadelphia gun violence. So far this year, the city has seen more than 210 murders. A rate approaching the level set in 2007, when the city saw more than a murder a day and earned its nickname Kila-delphia. At GunCrisis, an open-source interactive journalism project launched in March, the goal is to avoid becoming entangled in gun control debates or in drafting new legislation, MacMillan said. Instead, they try to bring people together to find solutions to the epidemic of homicide by gunfire in Philadelphia. MORE
