Another article quote:

Bufford’s murder was brought to the Quinn administration’s attention by an incredulous South Shore activist, prompting the now-defunct state agency charged with administering the Neighborhood Recovery Initiative to scurry into damage control.

You bring up an interesting point.

What do Democrats “do” with the predictable results of their insane policies, when they have been in charge for a long time?

They allign themselves with whatever element of coercive power they can find to continue their failing policies, no matter how corrupt or criminal.

OTOH, a single instance of a couple of low level employees gone rogue does not indict the entire program.
If that was the case, we could certainly indict or disband all government agencies at every level, no matter the size, scope or function.

The NSA comes immediately to mind.

I don't know how many of my fellow FReepers have lived in an area controlled by criminal thugs themselves, but in my experience, there is seldom an area free of threatening criminal coersion, in every city and town at the lower economic level.
