You really don’t get it. When I said Black cops I was being facetious. You sir are either willingly ignorant or a racist. And what’s this “my community?” Not all Black folks live in high crime communities and not all high crime communities are Black. I have a list if you want.

I trust you saw the 60 Minutes piece about the Chicago murder rate last week. If not I suggest you don’t stop there. A week before that piece, 60 Minutes unknowingly gave the best answer on how best to reduce the Chicago violence in a piece titled, “The New Columbia.”

First, think for a moment on when was the last time you heard of drug cartel violence in Columbia. I had been wondering that before I saw the 60 Minutes piece. And coincidentally I have been trying for years to do the same in the community closest to me. Sadly, the fact that I am not from that community people will not give me the time of day. Go figure.

1983 to 1993 Bible Study teacher at SF juvenile hall. Currently prison reform activist and author of Case Game - Activating the Activist; an autobiography.
