I seem to remember when some Black men in Philadelphia wanted other Black men to form neighborhood patrols to help cut down criminal behavior in the neighborhoods, that some people said it was a bad idea because that was the job of the police.
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Residents of Ohio's capital city are complaining that police officers are telling them to move out if they're fed up with neighborhood crime.
At least two Columbus city council members have heard the complaint.
An aide to Councilwoman Charleta Tavares says she has received more than 20 calls. Councilman Andrew Ginther says if police are making the comments, they're neither acceptable nor appropriate, though he says he believes most officers want to be helpful.
What was that they were saying again? It appears, to me, that the police are now saying they are collecting a pay check.
