Looking In On the Public Hysteria Task Farce
Robert Norse
With hearings for the Mayor Bryant's hand-picked "Task Force on Public Safety" happening weekly now with the aim of churning out a report in November, I stepped in to tonight's meeting at the Civic (next week's is supposed to be at the Police Station again--where most of their meetings have been held). I only stayed for an hour of the meeting. The audience was small and submissive. As ever, there was no provision for public comment, though there was informal (if insubstantial) chatter between Task Force members and some of the regular audience members. I include a poster I displaye for those arriving and a flier I gave out to the Task Force and to the audience.
