Once again we have had another multiple shooting with an innocent 8-year-old victim clinging to life and her father seriously wounded. All of this for no apparent reason. To make matters worse, the Herald didn’t even deem this incident newsworthy enough to place it on the front page, instead burying it at the bottom of page 8A. No wonder people are becoming desensitized to these incidents.
Until the elected officials, community leaders, the media and the law enforcement leadership in our community begin to treat these events as a crisis, these tragic and inhumane acts will continue.
