Re: “Chasse Protester Arrested

Is there a fund to pay for the damages she did to City Hall?

She's not a hero. She a lone, angry person who lashed out because she couldn't resolve the fact that injustice exists in abundance. She joins the throng.

Re: “Adams Releases Plan For First 100, er, 95 days, In Office...FIRE UP THE WONK SIGNAL!!!

David,

Seems Management got stalled after the premiere at the Toronto Film Festival in September. It may just be in queue for release.

See - http://tinyurl.com/9rtrue

Matt - call Steve Belber at 718-783-1463 (Brooklyn).

This is important, David. And thanks for your support of the Chinese workers and asylum inmates memorial in the SW corner of Lone Fir. That will be important too.

Re: “Songs, Flowers, and Even A Prayer: Mayor-elect Adams Becomes Mayor Adams

Again with the same Alasdair Gray quote. It's rather amorphous, actually, and gets wider, more proscriptive and less meaningful on further consideration.

Re: “RACC Grants Announced

These are PROJECT grants and not GENERAL SUPPORT grants. The GS grants spoil a richer, more affluent, whiter, Europhile audience.

Re: “Cop Union Boss Has Strong Words On Chasse Case

IMPUNITY
Pronunciation: \im-ˈpyü-nə-tē\

Etymology: Middle French or Latin; Middle French impunité, from Latin impunitat-, impunitas, from impune without punishment, from in- + poena punishment
Date: 1532

Definition: exemption or freedom from punishment, harm, or loss

Shit happens. Impunity is systemic. If the cops had said - we made a mistake, we're sorry, we'll fix it - nobody would disagree. We'd take it in stride - the costs of living in the big city. Wrong place at the wrong time. The family would be sad, but compensated knowing the cops understood they had made a mistake. The terrifying and continuing weirdness of this case is they don't think they made a mistake.

This discordant and arrogant statement from the union flack shows the impunity continues.

And didn't Westerman already kill two people?

So. Who's next?
