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 governors office returned messages left by the Post-Tribune seeking comment on the request.
The introduction to the plan calls this years 31 homicides unprecedented, citing a more than 50 percent increase over the same time in 2012.

Gary, the Chicago wannabee!
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.
How many black youth were shot by “white Hispanics”?
how many were shot by other black men?
Who does she blame for the killing fields of Gary???
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.
If I was Pence, I say no until she drops one of her hyphenated names..
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.
well God ain’t over it, Mav. lying down on the job is frowned upon from heaven
because they are working oh so well
Midnight basketball. Is there any problem it can’t solve?
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.
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 ...
” Midnight basketball. Is there any problem it cant solve?”
It can’t solve the problem of which player gets stuck with robbing the 7-Eleven after the game.
