Gary beefs up appeal to Pence for state police help
Post-Tribune ^ | July 25, 2013 | Post-Tribune Staff

Posted on 07/26/2013 1:41:47 PM PDT by John W

GARY — Mayor Karen Freeman-Wilson wrote a second, more detailed appeal to Gov. Mike Pence on Tuesday, asking him to send Indiana State Police into the city to boost police presence for three months.

Since the July 11 letter, “several more homicides occurred claiming the lives of young African-American males. The situation in our community is now beyond urgent,” the mayor wrote.

Attached to the letter is a five-page, “Gary, Indiana for Life” plan that includes many operations and programs in place long before the recent jump in violent deaths here.

No one from the governor’s office returned messages left by the Post-Tribune seeking comment on the request.

The introduction to the plan calls this year’s 31 homicides “unprecedented,” citing a more than 50 percent increase over the same time in 2012.

Gary isn’t in much better shape than Detroit. The simple fact is that the destruction of Detroit devastated an area from Pittsburgh to Chicago.

When a black man shoots a black man, it’s a crazy-ass cracker’s fault.

PS: make sure the state PO-leece are all black; since I don’t think a white PO-leeceman could stop, shakedown, arrest, or shoot a local hoodlum, w/o creating an international incident.

Another Democrat trying to do what Democrats naturally do. Get somebody else to bail them out with funding from the magic money tree. After all it’s the governments money.

Sorry, but I’m over it.....why in the he77 should I care if young black men are killing one another?
Statistically that improves the chances for the rest of us to be left the he&& alone.

Good point. Nowadays, white cops dealing with black suspects are going to be considered racist. In this politically correct world, ideally we would have only black cops dealing with the black criminal element, to neutralize talk of racism.

Yup, asking for what is still a bailout by other means. In this case just trying to get the taxpayers to pay for more police in the city.

What has changed in Gary since about the time US Steel closed their last operation there? The place has ALWAYS been a pit from somewhere deep in Hades, and while the situation today is almost insufferably terrible, still it has not changed much in some thirty or forty years.

And it still makes East St. Louis, Illinois, look good.

Mayor Karen Freeman-Wilson

Let the thugs kill each other until they are all gone.

Let the law-abiding citizens carry locked-and-loaded, and shoot to kill the thugs on approach.

Of course it is. If white flight hadn't reduced the white targets available ...

It can’t solve the problem of which player gets stuck with robbing the 7-Eleven after the game.

Wow.... It’s sounding like it’s not safe for blacks to live around blacks. Hmmm, might not be long before the black folks regret pi$$ing off us whites. LOL

So you’re making a mission trip to Gary, Indiana to solve the problem?

Indiana has carry laws. It also has stand your ground laws I suggest she establish some neighborhood watch groups and arm them.

Cities have always been places of violence. Even in the bible, violence and depravity nested in the cities.

What impelled you to make such a blasphemous comment? I just warn. God’s there and always wills the same thing. Romans 13, if you dust your bible off.

Spell out exactly what is “blasphemous” about my comment. Do you even know what the word means?

>> I just warn.

You just sanctimoniously bloviate from your recliner, you mean. Instead of taking others to task, set a good example! Get off your butt and DO something about it. Even if it’s just to get on your knees and pray. If it’s not too much trouble, that is.

Damn white suburbanites...keep voting down “mass transit” out to their spread-out gated communities! How’s an aspiring thug supposed to get out to where the people with good stuff are? Steal a car?

She’s trying to make Pence look bad. Watch the liberal media start interviewing her and then the drumbeat will begin.
