Is That Supposed to Make Us Feel Better?

Wilkes-Barre had another shooting Friday night. This time, someone died. What did we hear from police and the district attorney? We shouldn't worry because this was not a random act.

Okay. It might have been "bad guy on bad guy" crime. That doesn't excuse the fact that there's been still another shooting in Wilkes-Barre. Someone's running around out there, presumably with a gun, who doesn't value human life, who's killed once and might kill again. Hey, don't worry. The victim was no saint. Everything's fine.

If you're trying to make me feel better, you're not doing a very good job.

It's clear Wilkes-Barre has a problem. A big one. Unfortunately, Wilkes-Barre isn't alone.

You're losing the war against crime. You've already lost the fight for common sense.
