The suburbs not the answer?

April 14, 2014

While it might not be politically correct to ask the following question during this time of healing, but I think it is necessary to avoid further murders and harm to the innocent: How many young people like Alex Hribal, the stabbing suspect in last week’s incident at Franklin Regional High School in Murrysville, are living in so-called “perfect” suburban communities?.

Littleton, Colo., where the Columbine High School massacre took place, Newtown, Conn. and now Murrysville were considered ideal communities away from the so-called “bad” influences of the inner cities. Perhaps moving away from the inner cities to a suburban enclave is not the answer to safety and security
