“Better tell that mayor to get tough,” Trump had said.
To which our doughty mayor, no, no, no, no:
. . . fighting violence [is] “not about being tough but being smart and strategic.”
And it’s working! Why can’t Trump see that?
Besides, programs are in place:
Emanuel said he is working to create jobs, expand after school programs and curtail access to guns as part of a comprehensive strategy that includes an increasing reliance on high-tech crime fighting tools, like the Shotspotter program that uses high-powered microphones to detect gunshots.
Fine, for the last named, which is crime-fighting. The others are social services. Why always the preference for social service?
