One Child Assaulted, One Child Murdered

Some of my fondest memories of childhood are of exploring my neighborhood with my friends, playing in the swampy area behind our houses, riding our bikes until darkness rolled through the streets....but children today can't build those memories.

Their parents must keep them in sight at all times.  The children sense their parents' fear and become fearful themselves.  And then, if just for a moment children shed the fear and become their happy, carefree selves, something like this might happen, and it, and other horrible things, are happening more frequently.

We need to take back our neighborhoods.  We need to let our children enjoy their childhoods without fear.  We need to end this senseless violence...
