A moronic Dim — but I repeat myself, is one-upping the “rape whistle.”
Chicago alderwoman brings back ‘WhistleSTOP’ program to deter crime
Lincoln Park Alderman Michele Smith (D-43) is asking her constituents to buy whistles and blow them if they see certain crimes unfold.
“The idea is to let people know that they’re being watched in the community, and being supported by the community and help take back our streets,” said Smith.
Yes, a stupid idea. But how can you make it even more stupid?
In the bulletin, she writes, “if you find yourself in a suspicious situation or witness a crime, blow your whistle. If you hear a whistle, call the police, then move toward the source while blowing your own whistle.”
Yep. That stupid. Approach an active crime scene. Gangbangers shooting it out over drug turf, or just another episode in Revenge Shooting of the Day? Blow your whistle to call the thugs’ attention to yourself as you go to wattch the excitement.
On the bright side, in Chicago I don’t think many folks are going to take her advice.
