Meet the victims
dapoblog has posted a list of the murders in 2007. This list comprises names and details of the crimes (links to the police reports). Excellent research.
I agree with Traveling Mermaid that all the murder victims should be recognized....they all had family, friends and lives. Even the criminals....who knows why they turned to a life of crime? One factor is the failure of our society and our community. The failure of a strong family structure by which I don't necessarily mean blood family. We need these murders in our faces everyday to motivate us all to do what we can to break this vicious cycle of violence. The big question is, what can we do as a community to turn it around?
