Members of the Black Disciples street gang in Chicago have joined protests to save a South Side hospital.
Roseland Community Hospital is the only hospital within an eight mile radius. Supporters say it is an essential lifeline for the people in the community. They assert that 50,000 will be at risk, and 600 people will lose their jobs.
Rev. Phillip Cusic, an employee at the hospital, says members of the Black Disciples reached out asking if they could help keep Roseland open.
