Joe Doakes from Como Park emails:
Chicago PD needs to get guns off the streets of those neighborhoods. You know what would get guns off the streets? Stop-and-frisk. Don’t even bother to arrest the people in possession – that raises all the Fourth Amendment defenses and exacerbates racial disparity in convictions – just take the guns from people who shouldn’t be carrying them, and auction the guns to lawful buyers to fund midnight basketball programs. Who could possibly object to that?
No rational person.
But then, I’m tacitly repeating myself, here.
