September 4th It’s going to get dangerous…..
Today the Mike and Neil were buried. I told Phil they would not be replaced this week. We agreed most likely the gang that hit Hwy 72 would stay away – for now. Jennifer, Mike’s wife – was absolutely a wreck. Who could blame her. Several women in the neighborhood agreed to take shifts to watch her and help with the kids. The kids. My god those poor kids.
I talked to Ryan about Hwy 72, and the Blue Bandanna Gang. What a corny name for a gang but I don’t know what else to call them. As far as Hwy 72 it will be difficult to find volunteers to fulfill our agreement I suspect after what happened. We decided that Thursday we would start campaigning with everyone in the neighborhood to find 6 more to go for another week.
Now – I brought up the gang and the need to do something about them. Ryan agreed. While we were talking Bill came over and got in on the conversation. I told them that the gang was a threat to all of us and they will continue to wreak havoc in the area and will no doubt hit us again. Any success they have will lead to their numbers growing. We need to hit them and hit them hard. I then told them a quote that I had memorized years ago:
“Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.”
– Martin Luther King, Jr.
Both Bill and Ryan agreed it was time.
We need a plan. The decision was for the three of us to regroup tomorrow and bring ideas on how to do it.
I suspect M will not be happy.
