‘Trump bring your rump!’ West and South Side leaders invite president to the city he often tweets about By MICHAEL ROMAIN Editor

A Jan. 24 tweet by President Donald Trump has prompted an intense dialogue about what role the federal government might have in mitigating Chicago’s gun violence problem, with an array of West Side leaders offering their own suggestions about how Trump can help solve a problem that many say he should see with his own eyes. “If Chicago doesn’t fix the horrible ‘carnage’ going on,” Trump tweeted last month, “I will send in the Feds!” According to recent crime statistics released by the Chicago Police Department, the city logged 51 murders in January 2017, roughly the same number of murders logged in the previous January. There were 234 shootings and nearly 300 shooting victims. As Supt. Eddie Johnson told MSNBC’s Chris Hayes, host of “All In with Chris Hayes, during a televised town hall held last week on the South Side, an overwhelming majority of that gun violence takes in five of the city’s 22 police districts. “And out of those five, three — two on the West Side and one on the South Side — drive the most violent crime,” Johnson said, referencing the West Side Harrison and Austin police districts and the South Side Englewood police district. Since Trump’s January tweet, one of his advisers, Cleveland pastor Darrell Scott, has reportedly been meeting with people the pastor described earlier this month as Chicago’s “top gang thugs” in an See TRUMP on page 6

‘HIRE LOCAL’: A group of about 15 members of Black Workers Matter voice their demands inside of Mercury Plastics, Inc. on the West Side during a Feb. 9 demonstration. The group wanted to speak with the company’s CEO to discuss what they considered to be the company’s sparsity of local hires.

Black workers blast company’s hiring practices Black Workers Matter say Mercury Plastics needs to hire more West Siders By LEE EDWARDS Contributing Reporter

Black Workers Matters protestors braved below freezing temperatures to send a message to plastics supplier and manufacturing company, Mercury Plastics, Inc.: Discriminatory hiring practices will not be tolerated on Chicago’s West Side. The movement — launched over a year ago in response to repeated instances

of unfair wage-cutting, hiring discrimination, and unsafe working conditions throughout the Chicagoland area — prompted a band of workers to organize the group, according to Anthony Stewart, one of its founders. Over a dozen BWM protestors marched, held signs and chanted for equal opportunity employment in front of Mercury Plastics’ 150,000 sq. ft. headquarters, located in Chicago’s Hermosa neighborhood at 4535 W. Fullerton Ave.

The protest quickly moved inside the building to the main lobby, where multiple requests to speak with Rick Goldman, Mercury Plastics president and CEO, were denied by the company’s human resource personnel. After the final request was denied, protestors momentarily chanted, “Black workers matter!” before dispersing. Mercury Plastics, Inc., a supplier of

STREET beat

Rob Taylor, 60, the Trump whisperer We ran into Taylor inside of a Madison Street salon last Friday while working on this week’s cover story on what West and South Side leaders think about a potential Trump visit to Chicago. Taylor, who is ordained and has a prison ministry, talked about the president’s strengths and weaknesses. I understand where Trump is coming from in terms of jobs and people taking personal responsibly for them. I understand that and I get that aspect of his message. But his methods are just screwed up and he doesn’t have moral authority. Moral authority is when people say, ‘I can trust this person’ and they believe that you can do the right thing. The problem with Trump, among most Americans, is he doesn’t have that moral authority. They don’t think he has the capacity to do the right thing and he’s kind of dishonest, like the rest of the politicians.

Would you be against him visiting Chicago? No! We need all the support we can get. We need all we can. Trump’s problem,

though, is he just shoots off at the mouth. He has a great disconnect between his brain and his mouth. He doesn’t think the impact through. As president, what you say impacts countries greatly and you have to think before you speak. Look at Obama. When they asked him a question, normally he would pause, then talk. Trump doesn’t even think. Read more about Taylor’s life in ministry at austinweeklynews.com. CONTACT: michael@austinweeklynews.com

custom thermoplastic plastic, fabrication and printing services, according to its website, has come under fire in the past for perceived racism. A group of African American men filed a federal class-action lawsuit against MVP Staffing, a temporary hiring agency, and other companies, Mercury Plastics included, on the basis of racial discrimination practices against African American applicants in favor of Hispanics, according to a December 2016 report by The New York Times. Hassan Blanch, another founder of BWM, said that he and other protestors have spoken with current and former employees of Mercury Plastics and discovered that still very few, if any, hail from predominantly African American communities on Chicago’s West Side. He said Mercury Plastics’ employees should reflect the residents of the community in which it resides. “We had a discrimination issue and we came together and politicked, took care

of business and won,” said Blanch. “We’re back again dealing with the same issues.” Marquis Sheppard, 21, a former employee at Mercury Plastics was front and center during the protest. He believes he was unfairly terminated due to the color of his skin. The Austin resident claims his work performance was under consistent high scrutiny despite positive results during his month of employment. Since that time he’s been unable to have a discussion with hiring personnel at Mercury Plastics or the temp agency that employed him. He said he believes in BWM’s effort to highlight discrimination. “It seems like they’re only hiring from one part of the West Side of Chicago and leaving the other one out and that’s not right,” said Sheppard. “It really irks me, it really angers me inside but what can I do? I’m not an alderman, I’m not in the state Senate, I don’t have the upper-hand but what I try to do is get my voice heard and try to put my feet to the ground and make an impact.” David Goldman, Mercury Plastics manager and son of Rick Goldman, offered a statement of “no comment” to Austin Weekly News after the conclusion of the protest.

Lake St. in Austin. “This isn’t a topic for tweeting,” said Deputy Mayor Andre Zopp during the MSNBC town hall. “It’s a serious issue [and] we’re working to address that violence.” “The back-and-forth, the Twitter war, that doesn’t mean anything to people in some of our most crime-ridden and impoverished neighborhoods,” said Lori Lightfoot, the president of the Chicago Police Board. “They look to leaders to solve problems, not paint them [as] two dimensional.” Many of those who spoke during the town

hall formed the consensus opinion among those gathered that the city’s gun violence requires more than mobilizing federal law enforcement officials or hiring more police officers. “The feds have completely cut youth jobs,” Zopp said. “We have a youth jobs program here that the city funds, we don’t get any federal support. The U.S. Attorney’s office here has the lowest rate of gun prosecutions of any U.S. attorney’s office in the country. We could use federal support.” Trymaine Lee, a national reporter for MSNBC, said that numerous residents and community leaders told him that the city’s violence problem won’t change until those who seek to solve it start considering it in different terms. “The violence is spread beyond the gun,” Lee said. “Poverty is violence. Hunger is real violence. The trauma folks are seeing inside the home, but also the repeated exposure to violence in the streets — people are wound up and traumatized — all of that is violent, but we don’t address that kind of violence.” Cook County Commissioner Richard Boykin (1st) told Hayes that the federal government should start putting resources in services that support households, but that it should also committee more resources to traditional law enforcement measures. “We must focus on parenting,” Boykin said. “If the federal government made a commitment to invest in parenting work with the faith-based community, with organizations that do professional parenting, we could turn this thing around.” Boykin added that, since he considers the city to be in a “virtual state of emergency,” the federal government should send in “additional FBI agents, DEA agents and ATF agents.” “We can’t police our way out of poverty, but we need them to help solve this clearance rate,” Boykin said, referencing the fact that fewer than 4 in 10 homicides are solved by police. On Feb. 7, Rev. Ira Acree, the pastor of Greater St. John Bible Church in Austin who served as a delegate for Hillary Clinton last year, sent off a letter to the White House inviting Trump to Chicago’s crime-ridden

neighborhoods. “I unashamedly call on all the residents of these endangered communities of our city to welcome our president’s help in addressing the social despair that produces the violence,” Acree wrote. “Let’s not sugar coat it, these neighborhoods are dangerous. “I beg to differ with those local politicians and bureaucrats who get offended when people compare Chicago to Afghanistan and other war zones,” he continued. “Chicago is a world-class city, but many residents live in terror, in what’s a virtual war zone. Public safety actually depends on which neighborhood you live in. If you live in North Park you’re safe, but in North Lawndale you’re not. Lincoln Park is safe, but Garfield Park is dangerous. The Residents of Edgewater live in comfort, while those in Englewood are in a crisis.” Anti-violence advocate and former gubernatorial candidate Tio Hardiman said that he welcomes a possible Trump visit to Chicago, but added that the president should devote as much attention to the often overlooked West Side as he would the South Side. “A lot of times, the West Side is ignored, because a lot of attention goes to the South Side,” Hardiman said in a phone interview last week. “Austin is one of the biggest communities in Chicago. Maybe Trump would put much-needed resources in Chicago to help us stem the tide of violence. Maybe we need start leaning on non-traditional people who aren’t always in the media, who are really out here saving lives.” During the MSNBC town hall, U.S. Rep. Bobby Rush (D-1st) invented a new slogan in the wake of Trump’s Twitter treatment of the city’s gun violence problem. “I don’t know what Trump means when he says, ‘bring in the feds,’” Rush said. “My personal challenge to Trump is, Trump bring your rump into Chicago. Go into these communities and hear [from] these people who are on the frontline day by day. Hear what they have to say about their aspirations for their community.” CONTACT: michael@austinweeklynews.com

County seeks more federal funding for anti-violence

Commissioner Richard Boykin says county’s measure isn’t targeted enough By TERRY DEAN AustinTalks

The Cook County Board of Commissioners last Wednesday approved a resolution asking the federal government for more money to help reduce crime in Chicago. West Side Commissioner Richard Boykin drafted a resolution last month asking President Donald Trump to provide help, responding to Trump’s threat, via a tweet, of sending the feds to Chicago to crack down on violence. Wednesday’s hour-long debate, however, grew contentious as Boykin’s resolution went down in a procedural vote. North Side Commissioner Larry Suffredin offered an alternative resolution that the full board approved 11-4, with two commissioners absent. Boykin, along with Commissioners Sean Morrison, Timothy Schneider and Jeffrey Tobolski, voted against the measure. The alternative, they argued, didn’t address the South and West Sides specifically, where much of the violence is taking place.

Suffredin’s version, they added, was directed to the federal government as a whole and requested money for every Chicago community. Boykin and his supporters expressed disappointment with the alternative, calling it vague and a request for “the status quo.” Suffredin and his backers countered that Boykin’s version wasn’t specific enough. Opponents of the alternative also fear the South and West sides won’t get the resources it needs, while supporters stressed that those communities will be helped by whatever money comes from Washington, D.C. But that argument didn’t sway opponents. “Who does this go to?” said Boykin, whose district includes Austin. “The federal government is a big monstrosity. It doesn’t say it’ll go to the president, it doesn’t say it’ll go to anybody.” Opponents also questioned whether their colleagues were put off by addressing the president directly. “I think anything with the name Donald Trump on it, we’re going to find something wrong with it and go against it, and I think that’s wrong,” Commissioner Schneider said. The president first commented about Chicago’s violence in a Jan. 24, tweet. He did so again last week during a Washington, D.C.,

breakfast with black leaders, saying, “If they’re not going to solve the problem, then we’re going to solve the problem for them,” according to various media outlets covering the event. Cook County commissioners joined Mayor Rahm Emanuel in calling for federal help, including from the ATF and FBI. Chicago had 784 homicides in 2016, according to Chicago Police data compiled by Chicago Tribune. The city has recorded 61 homicides so far this year, nine of them in Austin. Commissioners backing the alternative resolution insisted the city needs a “holistic” approach to curbing violence. “This resolution is broader, and it’s aimed at the federal government,” Suffredin said, noting that his measure requests money for such things as workforce development, police training, and reducing gun violence.

“These are programs that we want to continue and expand,” Suffredin said, adding that past resolutions by the board were not aimed at only the president. West Side Commissioner Robert Steele, who voted for the alternative, added: “The substitute speaks to more items than just the deaths that we’re having in those communities.” But Commissioner Tobolski, in backing Boykin’s effort, insisted a new spending approach is needed. “The violence and death toll continue to escalate at alarming numbers in Chicago. Either the money is misplaced, or it’s going where it’s not being effective,” Tobolski said. “I support my colleague. All he’s trying to do is find the resources that are necessary to help his people and represent his district.” CONTACT: austintalks.org@gmail.com

We need to demand President Trump’s help in stopping this violence

Trump must be investigated

ellyanne Conway was wrong in so many ways. But the buck still stops with the president. I strongly condemn the on-going string of actions by the Trump administration that demonstrate their inability to separate and disentangle their personal financial interests from the decisions they are taking on public policy. The fallout from the blatant ethics violation by Kellyanne Conway during an interview on Fox News Thursday has renewed concerns about the real and potential conflicts of interest for President Trump, and many in his cabinet of millionaires and billionaires and his staff. After Nordstrom announced Wednesday that they were dropping Ivanka Trump’s clothing line due to poor sales, the president tweeted from his personal Twitter account and the official White House account that his daughter “has been treated so unfairly.” On Thursday, speaking from the White House briefing room, Trump advisor Conway told viewers: “Go buy Ivanka’s stuff is what I would say. This is just wonderful line,” she said. “I own some of it. I fully — I’m going to give a free commercial here. Go buy it

Cop who killed LeGrier, Jones won’t be charged

Flip, Twist and Tumble!

Flipside Acrobatic Performance Team Tryouts

The Cook County State’s Attorney said it had insufficient evidence to prosecute By MICHAEL ROMAIN Editor

In a statement released on Feb. 10, the Cook County State’s Attorney’s Office announced that it would not file charges against Robert Rialmo, the Chicago Police officer who fatally shot Quintonio LeGrier, 17, and Bettie Jones, [55], in December 2015. The incident happened outside of an apartment building at 4710 W. Erie in [XX]. After an investigation into the shooting — conducted by the FBI, the Illinois State Police and the Independent Police Review Authority — the State’s Attorney’s office explained that “there is insufficient evidence to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that Officer Rialmo did not act in self-defense in shooting LeGrier and Jones.” “A criminal prosecution for first or seconddegree murder would require proof beyond a reasonable doubt that Rialmo was not legally justified in using deadly force against LeGrier,” the State’s Attorney’s statement reads. “In other words, a judge or jury would need to conclude that Rialmo did not reasonably believe he or his partner were in imminent danger of great bodily harm from LeGrier. “The uncontroverted evidence from the investigation into the shooting establishes that LeGrier was armed with an aluminum baseball bat when the officers encountered him and LeGrier wielded the bat in a threatening manner while in their close proximity. Under Illinois law, a baseball bat may be considered a deadly weapon.” Similarly, the statement adds, the evidence does not support prosecuting Rialmo for Jones’ death because, according to Illinois law, “when an individual acts in self-defense and accidentally kills a bystander, he is not criminally liable for the bystander’s death.” The State’s Attorney’s office stated that it has no opinion on the According to a recent Chicago Sun-Times report, the State’s Attorney’s decision “outraged Jones’ and LeGrier’s families, who have sued Rialmo and the city in civil court.” Rialmo, who issued a statement expressing remorse for the killings and stating that

he “had no choice” but to shoot because dispatch didn’t notify him of LeGrier’s mental state, has filed a lawsuit against the Chicago Police Department and has countersued Quintonio LeGrier’s estate. Rialmo is no longer on the working on the street, the SunTimes reported. The current Cook County State’s Attorney, Kim Foxx — who defeated Anita Alvarez in a primary election last year — did not a play a role in reviewing the case, her office’s statement notes. Foxx recused herself because she previously worked at Powers, Rogers & Smith, the law firm that represents the estate of Bettie Jones. On Dec. 26, 2015, Officer Rialmo and his partner was dispatched to the two-flat apartment building where Jones lived on the firstfloor beneath Antonio LeGrier, who called police on his son Quintonio because the teenager had been wielding a bat and acting erratically. When Rialmo and his partner arrived, they rang the doorbell. Jones opened the front door for the police “and pointed towards the upstairs apartment,” according to the State’s Attorney’s report, which claims that LeGrier almost immediately began running down the stairs wielding the bat after officers opened the door. “Rialmo and his partner backed onto the front landing and began moving backward down the front stairs,” the report notes. As the officers backed down the stairs, the report claims, LeGrier continued to pursue them with the bat before “Rialmo drew his service weapon and fired eight shots toward LeGrier while backing down the front staircase.” LeGrier was shot multiple times and Jones was shot once in the chest. But Larry Rogers, an attorney for the Jones family, has disputed the report’s findings, since it did not “mention ‘damning evidence’ that Rialmo fired his weapon at LeGrier, whose body fell inside the door to the duplex, from the sidewalk outside the house, some 14 feet away,” the Sun-Times reported. “That evidence conflicts with Rialmo’s version of events, Rogers said.” CONTACT: michael@austinweeklynews.com

Where is the sanctuary for black men?

anctuary City. That’s what Mayor Rahm Emanuel has proclaimed this city. So much so that he stood up to President Trump and basically declared he would defy federal law because of it. “To be clear about what Chicago is … it always will be a sanctuary city,” he professed at a press conference held in November of last year. Doesn’t the name “sanctuary” bring up images of safety? Welcoming? Inviting? Warmth? And most of all a religious connotation? To people who are in this country illegally, it has a meaning that says it is a place where their immigration status won’t be held against them. Being on this side of the border without proper documents won’t even get them a “roll of the eye” or a “steely-eye” stare. But what does “sanctuary city” say to someone who is simply an out-of-stater traveling home? Shouldn’t a stop in a “sanctuary city” where the mayor has told the illegal alien population, “You are always welcome in this city. Always,” mean the same sort of hospitable environment to the traveler? The traveler is an American citizen who is simply passing through our fine city going from Point A to Point D with a stop at Point C in between. One would, on the face of it, think that it should mean that. But the strange case of a shooting outside Union Station by an Amtrak police officer is one that struck me as odd from the moment I first heard about it. That Amtrak has its own police force isn’t shocking. That they feel the need to shoot someone down outside the station in what should be CPD territory seems very suspect. Especially when the reports initially said that very few details had been released. In the end, let’s see if this shooting passes your “sniff ” test. To begin with, the victim has no police record and was definitely unarmed. He is a 25-year-old father of two and, according to his family, had cash on him. Remember, folks, he is a stranger and he is in a city which is now known more for its killings

and shootings than any “Welcome to Chicago” greeting. He and his brother were traveling home to Minnesota from a funeral in Memphis. They had traveled via Megabus and had an hour layover in Chicago. From various sources, this is what is being reported. Chad and his brother sought sanctuary in Union Station to stay warm since Megabus doesn’t have a bus terminal. Inside they met up with a third individual from their bus. The three young people caught the attention of the Amtrak officers and they were asked to leave. They complied but after going back outside, the brother realized he had left a bag and went back into Union Station to retrieve it. The officers follow him back outside and proceeded to search the three of them. When the officer tried to go into Chad’s pocket where he had his money, Chad panicked and ran. The details get murky, but what is crystal clear is that about a half block away from Union Station, Chad Robertson was shot in the back of his neck in the middle of Canal Street. It is also alleged that he was hit by a car. What we do know for sure is that he is paralyzed from his neck down. His lawyer admits Chad had an insignificant amount of marijuana on him but not enough for the media to label it a “drugs and money” bust as if they had encountered El Chapo with several kilos of cocaine. It is also interesting that none of the other individuals were arrested, detained or otherwise prevented from going about their business. This shooting doesn’t pass my sniff test. The attempts to make Chad Robertson into some sort of drug kingpin to validate shooting him in the back leaves a bitter taste, Especially in light of the mayor telling folks who are here illegally that even if they are criminals, their presence will be met with a “wink.” My question to the mayor is simple: Where is the sanctuary for black men?
