  •  There seems to be little recognition of the harm (1+ / 0-)

    our society does to itself by creating a sub class of persons who view themselves as "criminals". Bank robbers, serial killers, and pot heads all lumped into a personal identity that gives them more in common with each other than with "straights". There are millions and millions of people in every part of this country who think that they have more in common with "perpetrators" than with "victims". At a minimum, it seems to me, that's the foundation of our ever expanding gang culture.

    There can be no protection locally if we're content to ignore the fact that there are no controls globally.
