- Fighting crime is not so simple, and that’s something CBS 2 cameras saw first-hand on Monday, when visiting the scene of one of this past weekend’s shootings.
[...] Ald. Roderick Sawyer (6th) joined [CBS personnel] in visiting the 7800 block of South Champlain Avenue on Monday, three days after Clayton was shot in a drive-by. Immediately, they were met with hostility.
“It ain’t y’all’s business,” one man said.
Sawyer attempted to talk to two young men on the block about what he could do to help the community. One of the two men claimed to be the brother of the victim. The young men cursed Sawyer and called him the “N” word.
Asked what the young men’s reaction said to him, Sawyer said, “Generation lost. I don’t know, I really wish I could say. … All I’m trying to do is help, and I’m getting a roadblock. I’m trying to help. I want to help.”
