RNC is a high-risk event; don’t host it

The Charlotte Observer (Sunday) - - Opinion -

Un­der nor­mal cir­cum­stances Char­lotte should wel­come a na­tional po­lit­i­cal con­ven­tion. Unfortunately, we are not in nor­mal cir­cum­stances.

I don’t think “in­clu­sive di­a­logue” will be on the minds of many of the demon­stra­tors on ei­ther side of the is­sues.

I would re­mind City Coun­cil of the 1968 Demo­cratic con­ven­tion in Chicago and the un­for­get­table civic dis­cord that ac­com­pa­nied it. Per­haps that would ex­plain why most ma­jor cities opted out of host­ing this par­tic­u­lar con­ven­tion.

Char­lotte does not need to take on such a po­ten­tially high risk event.

– Tim Tin­dall, Char­lotte
