You suddenly assumed that any housing involving public assistance will have no potential for periodic crime. You also suddenly assumed that any concern about some crime is a paranoia that a place is, calling all squad cars, "crime-ridden".
I had written "potential" since the history of public housing here is plenty enough to warrant the notion of "potential". In this specific case, these 3 locations may not have trouble handling 40 units of senior and mixed income housing, though there's no assurance that they'll actually be operated with those restrictions in the near or long term. The general concept of combining these uses warrants a dialogue about the matter, which is what Kamin was setting the tone for; I'm at a loss as to what words constituted "Kamin shooting it down".
