Violent week adds shooting
I am not sure what to make of this article. "Drive By" shootings in the suburbs? Were the shooter and victim locals? It appears they were not. It would appear that inner-loop crime just happened to spill way out into the suburbs. Is this story going to fill West Chesterites with so much fear that they move back to the city? Ok, after you finish laughing at that question, ponder for me, if you will, the idea that little West Chester really should fear city crime from Hamilton, not from Cincinnati. That is their geographic reality. I do not want Cincinnati to get piled on while Hamilton goes on with its commercials promoting their great city, without mention of their historically higher crime rates than the Queen City. I am taking a cue from the Bush Administration here by making a preemptive defensive of the City. The blame for this increase crime would surely fall on Cincinnati by many of the West Chester residents. I hope their transference is kept to a minimum.
