Paul Marion over at richardhowe.com already wrote this excellent summary of the meetup of local residents, city officials, police, neighborhood groups, and concerned teens at Armory Park today. I know Paul already singled this out, but one of the most interesting comments from the short speeches at Armory Park came from Capt. Sullivan, who reflected on the diversity among the group of 60 or so people who were there.
Here are some pics from today's event:
When I heard the news about what happened the other night, the first thing I thought about were the parents of Carinna Ouer. It's like, you can do EVERYTHING for your kid for 20 years -- feed her, clothe her, teach her, drive her, etc. but you can never protect someone from a senseless act like this.
