Mayor Protests the Protestors
- A suburban mayor is speaking out against a protest in her village last weekend. That demonstration ended with the arrests of Reverend Jesse Jackson and Father Michael Pfleger. They have led two protests at Chuck's Gun Shop in Riverdale. The mayor there says the demonstrations have cost the village thousands of dollars.
- The mayor says resources spent on protecting protesters' rights and safety will be better spent elsewhere, in particular, trying to prevent gun violence. This was all sparked by an incident over the weekend, a protest of a gun shop in Riverdale.
Of course, until Jesse gets some sort of payoff, he'll keep protesting. The payoff can be in the form of beer distributorships or even corporate donations to his "charities." The fact that he's sucking up city resources in already resource-poor Riverdale means nothing.
