the term came from the "central park jogger" case in NYC

as an aside, the kids convicted in the "central park jogger" case were innocent.

The five men whose convictions in the brutal 1989 beating and rape of a female jogger in Central Park were later overturned have agreed to a settlement of about $40 million from New York City to resolve a bitterly fought civil rights lawsuit over their arrests and imprisonment in the sensational crime.

The agreement, reached between the city’s Law Department and the five plaintiffs, would bring to an end an extraordinary legal battle over a crime that came to symbolize a sense of lawlessness in New York, amid reports of “wilding” youths and a marauding “wolf pack” that set its sights on a 28-year-old investment banker who ran in the park many evenings after work.

The confidential deal, disclosed by a person who is not a party in the lawsuit but was told about the proposed settlement, must still be approved by the city comptroller and then by a federal judge.

The initial story of the crime, as told by the police and prosecutors, was that a band of young people, part of a larger gang that rampaged through Central Park, had mercilessly beaten and sexually assaulted the jogger. The story quickly exploded into the public psyche, fanned by politicians and sensational news reports that served to inflame racial tensions.

The five black and Hispanic men, ages 14 to 16 at the time of their arrests, claimed that incriminating statements they had given had been coerced by the authorities. The statements were ruled admissible, and the men were convicted in two separate trials in 1990.

I'm pretty sure it's former cops with inside info.

wonder what kind of change would happen if the next mayor dissolved the TIFFs around the loop and reimbursed it all into the south side, even for say, 1-2 years
it would have to have some massive oversight for corruption tho

and the ability to clear the books of machine era election laws, like the byzantine, signatures to get on the ballot rules

it's really going to dilute the field (which is already pretty :? inducing)

The voting bloc that put Rahm in wouldn't go for this.

They want Lincoln Yards

if we have a progressive mayor along with a stronger progressive caucus in city council TIFF reform can be muscled around these turds
also his bloc really isn't that large if the a change candidate is able to turn out more 20s/30s year old voters than usual

I wonder if maybe chinatown, being at the confluence of every highway and train line in the city has this constant low rumble that drowns everything out

the sound was coming from the west actually, so there's probably just some weird echo.

I used to get that with Pitchfork fest when i used to live in west town too. i'd listen to the show from my back patio all the way near augusta
