A woman walks in to a City Council meeting...
She gets recognized by the Chair and humbly approaches the podium.
The woman is frustrated but hopeful as she presents her testimony.
It seems that the woman’s block is under siege by disrespectful and dangerous drug dealers. She tells Council of her efforts to stop their activities. She also tells Council how her activities have caused her to be threatened by the criminals, and ostracized by her also fearful neighbors.
She asks her distinguished community leaders for help, because she is helpless and fears for her well-being.
The distinguished President of City Council replies, “Have you considered starting a Block Watch?”
We offer our hands; you slap them. We ask for your hands; you tell us to start a block watch.
