Here is a list of 16 things Chicago officials should actually be outraged about:
The missing postal worker who is in fact still missing
A reported 52 girls still listed as missing in the Chicago area
The lack of repercussions for officers who have murdered men and women in the street.
The light sentencing of an officer who murdered a young man on the street with 16 bullets
Millions of dollars that have been paid out by the city to settle police brutality cases
Property taxes that continue to soar
Schools that are poorly funded by said property taxes in poorer neighborhoods, but magically make their way safely to schools in higher property tax brackets
Underfunded teacher pensions
Those 50 schools that closed in black in brown neighborhoods
Aldermen who make lots of money and do the bare minimum for their wards
TIFs in neighborhoods that do not need TIF funding
Potholes big enough to damage your suspension
Letters sent to residents suggesting we should test our water for lead.
The ever-increasing taxes placed on phone and cable TV service
The extra taxes Chicagoans have to pay on gasoline, in addition to the Illinois taxes.
That even though you have had your 15 mins of national TV time, no amount of outrage will cover up that the investigation was leaked and botched to the highest degrees. You prioritized it over some of Chicago’s most pressing cases and were embarrassed by the outcome.
In the words of the great young prophet Kendrick Lamar; it’s time to be humble and sit down.
