Mayor Mike Rawlings Announces Strategy to Combat Violent Crime

Or at least that’s what he’s supposed to announce, at 1:30. From an email to media Friday afternoon:

After the incident in Newtown and the rise in violent offenses in our community, especially domestic violence, Mayor Mike Rawlings announces plans for a strategy to reflect on our community’s role in dealing with these issues.

So, we’ll see. The video above will carry the press conference live. Right now it’s an old video of Deputy Mayor Pro Tem Tennell Atkins talking about MegaFest, if that’s something that may interest you.
