I dunno, something about segregation and guns, or something like that. I guess Tony Messenger has some sort of point, though I’m beside myself trying to figure why he didn’t work an anti-Semitic whisper campaign into this and blame that as well.
And then there’s this:
This is often the sentiment shared by North Side African-American aldermen whenever there is high-profile violence in other areas of the city, like downtown or on the South Side. They see immediate pledges to do something, anything. Patrols are stepped up. Attention is paid.
Anybody who spends much time downtown has seen an increased police presence at various times, for instance, since the May shooting of 21-year-old Brandi Hill on Washington Avenue.
Meanwhile, violence continues unabated in many neighborhoods on the North Side.
So what do they want? More cops in Bell Curve City, at which time Messenger will write a new op-ed accusing the cops of racial profiling? Their solutions are such that their implementation will always give them an open lane to complain about problems.
