Another Murder In Chicago

It happens again and again and the stories blend into one another.

This time, an NBA player, Knicks' guard Quentin Richardson has lost a second sibling to street violence in Chicago. Quentin's 31-year old brother Lee Jr., described as "jolly, kind, loving and protective" tried to thwart an armed robbery of himself and his 62-year old father last Monday. Recognizing the likelihood of their execution after giving the criminals their money, Lee Jr. tried ti wrest the gun from them. He died after being shot several times.

His sister, Rochelle, said:

"We have to stop this insanity, this violence in our neighborhoods. We have to stop it now. Please. And we can stop it. It doesn't have to be this way. We can't just turn our heads when we see our young people acting delinquent. We have to plant a seed. It's up to us to stop this cycle of tragedy and death. I don't want my brother to be just another statistic."

Echoes of the maligned Bill Cosby's message. This incident is not the fault of anyone but the perps. Yet, so it goes.
