Ken Davis is joined by the Metropolitan Planning Council’s Alden Loury and Sun-Times reporter Mick Dumke. They discuss a recent Dumke story about the spike in Chicago Police arrests of parolees for “unlawful contact” with people the police identify as gang members. They also discuss an MPC report that quantifies the cost of segregation in Chicago, expressed in lost wages, missed education opportunities and disparate law enforcement procedures. In addition, they analyze MPC data pointing to severe job losses that occur a few years after significant white population loss in individual suburbs, and consider a suggestion that some tax-strangled south suburbs might want to consider allowing the City of Chicago to annex them. This program was produced by Chicago Access Network Television (CAN TV).
