Marches, Candles, Slogans and Teddy Bears
Instead of actually stepping up and assisting the police Kansas City fights crime with marches,
The people that organize these marches etc.. would be better off using their time and energy to organize neighborhood watches, teaching their kids that it is OK to talk to the police and to teach parents that their actions effect the lives of their children. These kids didn't ask to be born into a life of drive by shootings and street executions and their communities need to do more than light some flippin candles to remember their lives.
This crap has been going on for 30 years or so and has any of their symbolic gestures done an ounce of good? The answer is obvious.
