Turned Himself In?

Jan 20, 2009 by

According to a report I just heard on NPR one of the perps has turned themselves in. They also finally announced Wendy’s name. I have no further details at this point.

[UPDATE: Again, according to NPR the kids turned himself in to the NOPD early this morning. He has been booked on First Degree Murder. Anyone want to guess how long before we get a 701 release?

Combine this with the 11 year old who was shot as a part of a running gun battle while participating in an MLK day parade yesterday. An MLK Day parade. The good doctor is weeping in his grave despite the OBama inauguration.  Is it any wonder we are rated the third most dangerous non war zone city on the planet? Loki, 8am CDT]

Children and parents, a constant topic when our city’s murederers ore often below the age of 17. All I can think of when I look at this situation is that the kids pictured in the police sketches look a lot like one kid I saw when in Gustav exile at a friend’s in Cincinnati. A kid who pulled up next to us on a bike, something that here induces fear because of instances like Wendy’s murder, and smiled and yelled “thank you,” my friend driving waved him ahead. That is what it should be like, not this.

Not this.
