Recommendations after deadly weekend

Top cop Eddie Johnson bemoans violence after a deadly weekend.

Fresh off another violent weekend in Chicago, police Superintendent Eddie Johnson stuck to familiar themes during a panel discussion Monday at the City Club of Chicago , lamenting the rocky relationship between his department and minority communities beset by violence and the need to hold repeat gun offenders more accountable.

After a 59-shot, 13-dead weekend, it’s all about guns, diversity, disinvestment in black ‘hoods (you’d think the money’d be pouring in, wouldn’t you? — thank you, Fr. Pfleger), social media (!).

Nothing about law enforcement: techniques, strategy, successes elsewhere. Thank you, Supt. Johnson and the other upstanding citizens at this gathering, especially fellow panelists Kim Foxx, Dem nominee for state’s attorney, Cleopatra Cowley-Pendleton, mother of slain teen Hadiya Pendleton, and Fr. Pfleger.

On the other hand, they are only following the accepted narrative.
