Ohio Governor Connects Recent Serial Killing to Poverty

Ohio Gov. Kasich links Cleveland serial killings to poverty

Ohio’s Governor John Kasich made some attention-getting comments this week about poverty and poor neighborhoods.

“We are seeing some of the heartbreaking results of poverty in our community today,” Kasich said, just a few miles away from the East Cleveland neighborhood where three women were found dead over the weekend.

Kasich said the murders are an example of what happens to neighborhoods hard hit by poverty. “It’s what happens when you have individuals who are very dangerous inside of a community and somehow we lose track of them,” he said. “It’s about breakdown of neighborhoods, sometimes where we don’t always know our neighbors. There’s so much to it but poverty to me is kind of at the core of it.”
