It happened from mid-day Saturday through early Sunday morning. The details are here.
These numbers are akin to what we would see in Chicago or Philadelphia. Our crime situation is out of control.
Why? Because our esteemed leaders on the Greensboro City Council– including but not limited to Mayor Nancy Vaughan and Mayor Pro Tem Yvonne Johnson– systematically and intentionally undermined the police; and dismantled proactive policing operations in the city.
Our city council members, including the two listed above, don’t give a flip about the fact that many young men– and especially young black men– are getting killed unnecessarily in our city. How can we know? Because if they gave a flip, they would genuinely try to fix the problem– not according to the ground rules of identity politics and political correctness, but instead according to what is right and just.
