Another day, another murder

This is getting ridiculous....

This time it was a block away from the school I teach at. There are one of those make-shift memorials with pink teddy bears, signs, candles and flowers up now. Its all visible from the monkey bars where my kids play.

Linguist jawn and I were talking about how if people are gonna spend money, why on a $50 teddy bear that's gonna get rained on, torn up and dirty, when that money could go to a non-violence program or the victim's family? But that's another blog for another time. We both agreed that the memorials made DEATH seem "kiddy", like a visit to Toys R' Us.

I heard it was a fight over money and the victim was under 20.
