I don't know if this is a good or bad thing, but I was more shocked to see Emmerson park make the paper than the fact that this incident happened. I'm pretty sure it's a bad thing. I'm really sorry for the family that this happened to, and I respect the hell out of both of them for what they did. But reading the article I just knew what was going to happen.
Hey people who didn't grow up here? Just an FYI for you. There is no such thing as a completely safe neighborhood in this city. I grew up with the phrase "block to block" and I think it still applies, gentrification be damned. Look at this family - the guy grew up going to that park, and that happened to him.
