14. The comments at the article are disturbing.
Edited on Mon Oct-04-10 08:44 PM by strategery blunder
"Does CPS know what criminal trespass is? End of problem!"


Because we all know that it's a BAD thing for teh little brown people to gain hands on experience with sit-ins, to learn how to stand up for their needs. We wouldn't want little brown people to do such uppity things as continuing the civil rights movement, now would we?


I've got CPS' "reasonable solution" right here. Spend the 500K allocated for demolition on bringing that building up to code. Let the parents and the community volunteer to help get that school library up and running. I thought community involvement in schools was supposed to be a good thing? :shrug:

(On edit: An event like this would be a bonanza for local social studies teachers, insofar as connecting historical relevance to present day is concerned, but for the teachers having to worry about teaching to the test instead. I doubt "How to conduct a sit-in" is tested on the PSAE.)
