Witness Getting Grief
This is what people who do the right thing have to put up with when they don't toe the line of the prevailing narrative:
- A violent confrontation on the Near South Side that left a man dead and a police officer wounded began when a woman walking her dog became suspicious as the man sat drinking in a park.
- [the witness] said some comments on the Internet have blamed her for Love's death.
“It’s not my fault what happened. I just reported something that I saw that was worth being reported," she said. "That’s what police are there for. If you can’t tell them, then I don’t know what you’re supposed do."
Of course, she's not from around these parts, so she doesn't understand how dangerous it might be to go against the "community" that wants nothing to do with actual law and order:
- [the witness] moved to Chicago last year and is working on her master’s degree in public policy at the University of Chicago. She was born and raised in Lebanon, and received a bachelor’s and master’s degree in English literature before switching career paths.
"If you feel like you’re seeing something suspicious that could potentially put other people in danger, the way you should respond is, to get the people there out of harm’s way and report it and let professionals deal with it,” [the witness] said. “Clearly I didn’t walk up to the guy and ask him, 'Hey, why are you here? Why are you drinking?' I just made sure the park was cleared and the girls went home. And I told the cops because figured it’s their job to deal with it.”
And educated? That's a no-no among the perpetually aggrieved people. Who does she think she is?
