You describe on the cover page of today’s paper (TNT, 6-1) how the Steele Street Forza coffee shop has been renamed Blue Steele Coffee Co. to honor law enforcement in memory of the four Lakewood police officers slain three years ago.
On another page, you relate how Ian Stawicki, the perpetrator of five recent senseless killings in Seattle, was able to obtain six handguns over the past decade even though he had exhibited very obvious signs of mental impairment and anger-management problems.
Yet, for whatever reason, your lead story on the cover was to glorify the very immature antics of Gig Harbor high school students who play-act out these very same senseless types of behavior. One young lady spends two hours a day updating a website showing the group’s “kills” for the day, who needs to track down whom, etc.
What is wrong with this picture? And with a newspaper that would glorify such garbage in light of so many recent shootings? Suburbs under siege, indeed!
