Begging Questions

The new year is certainly raising some. The conflicting stories for Grimes case. The changing stories in the Central City father kidnapping/murder investigation.

The coffee shop is stacking yard signs that mark crime scenes and organizing a protest. But before we get carried away, let's take a minute to remember some high profile cases from 2008:

1) Kyle Brown: The soldier shot in the motel off Airline
2) Jessica Hawk
3) The activist murdered in the ninth ward

Remember these? If you don't, it's okay. We had to Google them too. The fact is,if we've learned anything from 2008 it's that two hot button cases can start off 2009, but will probably fade from the public eye as we are submerged again in another years worth of unnecessary, unpunished, occasionally unexplainable, and more often than not, untraceable violence.
