The University of Chicagos admissions office is offering an incentive to its student tour guides: Come up with a creative way to dispel the negative perception' that the city is unsafe.
The Chicago Maroon obtained a copy of the email Assistant Director of Admissions Colleen Belak had sent out to the guides. The student who provided the message asked to remain anonymous due to a confidentiality policy.
In her email, Belak manages to toss in the name of the president-elect:

“Perception?” Sounds like denial to me.
Spend the $500 on a ammo & a mass grave to put all the gang members you can find into.
Repeat as necessary.
How about cutting down on the violence?
Spend the $500 on ammo & a mass grave to put all the gang members you can find into.

If you factor out about a dozen or so neighborhoods Chicago becomes safer than Paris.
So just stay out of:
You’ll be fine. But do remember your sidearm, just in case.
Yeah. “perception of violence”? Maybe some big marketing contract to dispell the “rumors” of violence in chitcago. Who elects these idiots. Oh, duh. Other idiots.
“There hasn’t been a murder within five blocks of here for over a week now.”
Perception? I can do that.
It might cost a little more than $500 for a lot bigger rug.
See, that could easily be done in a graphic display, either to scale or - the better to “perceive” safety - with the dangerous parts small and the safer ones larger.
Ok, this is it... STOP HURTING EACH OTHER, where do I collect my $500?
Turn the 500 into gift certificates for law abiding citizens to purchase handguns.
If you go to:
They lay it out pretty well.
Oh, so it’s not all the killing that’s the problem for Chicago, it’s the perception of violence.
Liberalism is a mental disease.
Legalize all gang related activity provided gangs wear tutus.
Any gang member not wearing a tutu can be summarily shot by police.
Heck, they’re asking input from snowflakes who feel that the college itself is unsafe. How much more dangerous must the City of Chicago be then?
