Cop Watch Fundraiser
- COPWATCH, an organization that works to prevent police brutality and educate the community on citizen rights, is holding a breakfast benefit to recover the costs of $750 worth of stolen equipment used to monitor the police that was being stored at the Catholic Worker House in Uptown. The benefit will feature banana pecan pancakes, tomato basil eggs, Metropolis coffee and the reward of being a good samaritan.
Brunch will be served 10:00 a.m-1:00 p.m. at the Catholic Worker House at 4652 N. Kenmore on Sunday, August 23 with a $5 suggested donation.
There are more than a few comments over at Uptown Updates that poke fun at the CopWatch mopes and take them to task for their attitude of "all cops are corrupt, evil and bad." It's refreshing to find that support out there in more and more places. It's a small glimmer of hope that all isn't lost in this city. We aren't celebrating by any means, but it's good to see. Maybe there will be a city worth saving by the time enough people see the light.
