Now Bunzo wants to use YOUR MONEY to demolish vacant homes in Gary:
Lake County Sheriff John Buncich has joined the mayor in asking the
state to help demolish an estimated 10,000 abandoned houses and
commercial buildings that have become havens for criminals.
made public Wednesday a letter he sent to Gov. Mike Pence asking for
state help in controlling a spike in Gary street violence that has left
40 dead this year so far.
Where does "state money" come from? Not Gary.
Meanwhile, Gary has very little debt, and $10 million dollars of casino money flowing through the city. They totally have the means to TAKE CARE OF THIS THEMSELVES.
Meanwhile, Gary's tax rate is outrageously high and crowds out Lake County, leading to the income tax. If Gary's tax rate were half as much, the county would get more property tax revenue, and probably wouldn't even need the income tax.
So Gary causes problems for everyone else, and won't even do the things it can to help itself. And this is who Bunzo is enabling with his bleeding heart policies, like this:
Buncich said county police officers perform routine patrols in Gary,
and department gang intelligence and drug enforcement investigators also
assist the city.
said even if state police deploy some of their troopers to Gary, it
would probably be for a limited period. Former governor Evan Bayh sent
50 state police troopers to Gary to patrol its streets during the last
three months of 1995.
"I feel that by deploying National Guard
personnel to this task, you would provide a cooperative sense of hope
and encouragement to not only the citizens of Gary, but the entire
County of Lake," Buncich wrote.
I just puked a little in my mouth.
I just came up with a new song, sung to the John Lennon tune, "Give Peace a Chance":
"All we are saaaaaaaaaayyyyyyyyiiiiiiinnnnnngggggg, is give the National Guard a chance!"
