mellowtigger: (we can do it)

Over the decades, I've appeared on local news a few times.  It happened again today.

KSTP did a piece for their 10pm news today about the citizen patrols within the Jordan community.  We are occasionally the worst violent crime neighborhood in all of Minneapolis.  We've had recent homicides, and last week we held a community meeting outdoors near the site of one of those homicides.  Some of that footage made the news tonight.

Also, they called me a few minutes before the end of my workday today, and they asked me to come to the community office (rented in a local church) to do an additional interview with KSTP reporter Todd Wilson.  They included some footage from that piece too.



I still intend to write longer articles about the dark side of Jordan.  I'm woken too many nights by gunshots, and we have too many memorials attached to trees on our sidewalks. 

I still intend to write longer articles about the potential to be found here too.  There are many people who want peace, many people who want to build a future rather than wreck one.  There are beautiful old homes, and wonderfully personalized front yards.  I hope that my front yard remains one such eccentricity in Jordan.

For tonight, though, on this too-humid and too-hot night (without air conditioning, whew!), the video segment (local archive) will have to suffice.
