It’s unfortunate that instead of working together to fight neighborhood blight, the city of Wichita and Sunflower Community Action often have acted like adversaries. Now two Sunflower members, J.J. Selmon and Louis Goseland, have been found guilty of trespassing while protesting at the home of City Manager George Kolb. They were sentenced Friday to 30 days in jail but will be allowed to serve their punishment by being on probation. Instead of putting so much effort and resources into antagonizing and prosecuting each other, the two sides should commit to a constructive partnership that benefits them both.
