Oh Poor Babies
- Fearing for the safety of its employees, Comcast canceled six appointments on Chicago's South Side Wednesday due to "heightened potential [for] violence" in the area, a company spokesman confirmed Wednesday.
A day after holding 9-year-old Tyshawn Lee's funeral, St. Sabina Church needed some help with its Internet connection — and was turned away because of neighborhood violence.
Outspoken anti-violence activist the Rev. Michael Pfleger shared his outrage about Comcast on Facebook Wednesday, writing:
"A Supervisor at Comcast just informed us that they couldn't send their technician to repair our internet service today because our area has too much violence.....ARE YOU KIDDING ME?????? Oh Hell No!!!!!!!"
Oh hell yes Dumbass. You can't force a company to send employees into harms way, and we can only imagine the faux outrage Pfleger would be spouting if Comcast charged an additional "safety fee" of $100 to all it's Englewood customers calling for service, the proceeds of which would pay for an individually armed off-duty copper to escort the technician. That would be hilarious...and well deserved. Sorry about the many paying for the sins of the few, but that's the situation on the ground.
