NOW IS THE TIME FOR ALL GOOD PEOPLE TO COME TO THE AID OF THEIR COUNTRY!
AS I WATCHED THIS VERY TRAGIC NEWS STORY UNFOLD THIS WEEKEND IN LOS ANGELES, I COULDN'T HELP BUT WONDER HOW high THE BAROMETER FOR HUMAN SUFFERING WOULD GO UP AND HOW FAR THE DEPTH OF DESPAIR WOULD GO DOWN: I TRAVEL BY CAR ON WILSHIRE BOULEVARD, DOWNTOWN LOS ANGELES, EVERY DAY, AND I CAN FEEL THE POVERTY, THE DRUGS, THE FILTH AND THE IMPENDING CRIME OF A UNITED STATES/MEXICAN BORDER TOWN IN THE MAC ARTHUR PARK AREA: HAVE YOU EVER EXPERIENCED TIJUANA, MEXICO, OR BROWNSVILLE, TEXAS, AND ASKED GOD, "Why?" abject poverty takes my breath away, in the exact opposite way that Yosemite Park does...
HOW COULD SOME CRETON END A CREATIVE YOUNG GIRL'S LIFE (Does it really matter that she is white and not a person-of-colour? She is one of God's Children.) ON THE INSIDE OF A VOLVO WINDSHIELD AT 5TH AND ALAMEDA STREETS? That, my friends, defines death by "blunt-forced trauma" as religiously-watching LAW AND ORDER has taught me.
I THANK GOD THAT LILY BURK HAD THE TEMERITY TO FIGHT BACK AND HAD CAPTURED THE PERPETRATORS DNA UNDER HER still-growing-after-rigor mortice FINGERNAILS.
We collectively refuse to allow you, Lily Burk, to die in this murderous way "in vain."
"WHY DO WE AS A SOCIETY CONTINUE TO MASSACRE INNOCENT PEOPLE, BOTH YOUNG AND OLD, FOR SOME UNKNOWN PSYCHOPATHIC/SOCIOPATHIC REASON?"
Where are the California mental hospitals that former Governor Reagan closed in the 1980s? That was nearly 30 years ago AND, please don't tell me, we don't have the monies to incarcerate felonious psychopathic murderers?
Why, God, I ask you, why?
OR, more appropriately, ASK WHY, PEOPLE, WHY?
