so the park at new jersey and O is dark. the electrical system is fucked up. instead of spending the $50 thousand to fix it. the city will spend 1 million dollars to renovate the park.
the 400 block of O street goes nowhere. crosstown drivers utilize N or P streets. thieves and gangsters use N and P streets. so what is the logic to place a bullet proof camera across from a park where the lights dont work and the vehicle traffic is minimal? but yesterday we had all the politicans and big shot commanders and chiefs at the site to hold a news conference about the crime emergency and to bravo the installation of this $100K bullet proof camera.
the fact is: all we needed was the lights repaired. that's the most infuriating part of this dysfunctional government. WHO is steering? WHO is in charge?
