Update: Meeting notes are at the super secret site. Yes the password is confusing (reminder: “this meeting never happened”). Regulars know what it is. Email me in the next few days (’cause next week I’ll just ignore you) if you don’t.
I may or may not go into more detail when/if I do the abrv. BACA meeting minutes, but something came up. Several weeks ago, probably over a month ago, a resident was attacked and robbed by someone on a bike, possibly a young AfAm male with dreadlocks, sending the resident to hospital. The resident victim is an immigrant with limited English skills. The police failed to take care of this matter. It took the efforts of his American neighbors to try to find some justice. The matter should have been taken care of by the MPD’s specialized units for particular immigrant/ ethnic groups. American neighbors had to cut through the inertia of the police just to find a little help.
Whatever your problems with immigration, legal or otherwise, this is wrong. There is no open season on ESL immigrants and there never should be.
Actually, the crimes by young men on bikes needs to stop. Immigrants haven’t been the only victims, people have been attacked and harassed up in the Eckington areas as well. The criminals perpetrating these crimes have no excuse, and those who make excuses for them are just as bad.
