Local Chicago authorities planted a ‘bait truck’ loaded with sneakers in Chicago’s Englewood neighborhood earlier this month— in hopes of catching people in the act of stealing. Railroad company Norfolk Southern Railway received much backlash while working with the Chicago Police Department; which prompted the company to apologize publicly and have all burglary charges dropped.
Chicago native, Vic Mensa gave away thousands of free shoes in conjunction with is SaveMoneySafeLife (SMSL) Foundation August 26. Mensa’s “Anti-Bait Truck” included brands such as Converse, Adidas, Puma, and Nike with a portion of the donations coming from various musicians and athletes who remain anonymous.

The event also included back to school haircuts and live performances. Mensa has received immense support thanks to his contributions back to his community.
“To see the police escort a bait truck full of shoes through a low-income neighborhood where people can’t afford basic necessities, it seemed very representative of how ill-equipped they are to deal with the city’s issues,” Mensa said in an interview with the New York Times.
