Catalytic murder

Not discounting or elevating the tragedy of an apparent murder recently visited upon the woman in tony New Irving Park, but the stark political reality is this:  That single incident probably did more to bolster the political will to finally shore up the ranks of our Police Department than all of the murders recorded in all of 2007.

Of late, hushed conversations among Greensboro’s white establishment power-brokers are likely beginning something like this:  That was them… this is us.”

    Nothing new here David as this has always been the case in human history. The well off power brokers must get their hit before a problem is finally recognized and something is done. As long as the mayhem stays in the “poor” neighborhoods or on the other side of the rail road tracks there simple is no problem. After all it is a known fact that “those” people breed like rabbits so a few being knocked off or dying off is only to be seen as good for the environment. BB

    I was beginning to think I was the only one who felt that way.
