I feel sick. I usually don't use this blog for social commentary, but there have been two murders in our community in the last week. Both are devastating to me.
John Henderson, a bar tender at the Standard in Grant Park was fatally shot last week by thieves when they were closing up. The bar was robbed as well.
Last night, a man, approached a couple outside a bar in East Atlanta to rob them. The victim shot the robber 5-6 times, killing him.
Robbery suspect shot and killed by intended victim
It's all just awful to me. Even though robbery is wrong, especially robbery with a gun--violence and death are not the solutions to this problem. This is not right, regardless of who is at fault.
Two people in the past week, right here, have been killed. I don't really know what to say, but I know in my heart that this is not right.
