I know there mixed feelings around here about public crime meetings. A lot of you feel like it’s just talk and emotion and feel-better-ism. But I think that this is one meeting that it would be good to have a big turnout for. The killing of 15-year-old Quincy Coleman was the last straw in what was a very violent October, and it’s time that we make a full court press as a community to let the city’s leadership know that we want some immediate action on neighborhood.
So please make time in your Thursday evening to head over to the Garfield gym and make your feelings known, at least by your presence if not by your words.
