Dear Mayor Cory Mason, Spokesperson Shannon Powell, and Alderpersons,
Due to the racial fueled conflict partially fanned by City of Ratcine
Mayor Cory Mason's actions - I have had to face increased hostility
and potential death threats from BLM supporters as I have ridden my
bicycle through Racine. This is very disturbing to me - because I
support the concept of Police - who are under the control of the Mayor
and Common Council - as being held to account.
Now - since the George Floyd homicide - it appears that many People
of Color believe that it is their right to hate on and attack White
People. I have been a victim - myself. I am very lucky to have
survived a number of incidents where, when riding my bicycle in City
of Racine, I have been threatened, had vehicles try to run me over,
and been chased down by those who were in the wrong. City of Racine
has become a very dangerous place to be at. Face it - 5 persons were
shot and wounded at North Beach in a vicious gang fight between
African American gang members.
It is time for Cory Mason and his entire Staff to resign because I
believe that they are supporting the insurrection. I want RPD to
regain control of the Streets and Beaches. I want to again feel safe
in riding my bicycle throughout the Streets of Racine. The African
American Community needs to be held to account - the same as every
other Community - if they can't control themselves - then they need to
be removed from the Community.
Tim & Cindy
