Why is it when you see victims of the shootings they seem fairly relaxed? is it that we are becoming desensitized to murder and killings. The TV reporting seems to be more focused on the the guy wearing a flack jacket type, the type of gun, how many he killed and how he did it. Why not show the parents of the baby, the little girl, the people who are affected by the killings. Are we Sensationalizing the killings and sending out the wrong message. We need to focus on the negative side of gun murder rather than turning it around and people being encoraged to carry a gun. USA is behind the times and still lives in an era of John Wayne.

Growing up, I began reading Dick Tracy in our local paper. I did so more for the adventures rather than the gore or violence depicted by Chester Gould in the feature, pointing out that crime doesn't pay. In certain instances, Tracy unerringly would drill a hood with a bullet thru the forehead exiting the back of the skull. Never did I ever expect to see one of the city's finest demonstrate that crime drama action in real life. It began one May evening as I approached a drugstore to make a purchase, noticing only one solitary light on. One lone customer was in a phone booth unseen by two hoods holding the place up. The woman told the person on the other end to call the police as she scrunched down lower to conceal her presence. All at once a squad car minus lights and siren pulled up just as the thugs were exiting the store guns in hand. One of the foolish creeps chose to shoot it out, with the first round missing them but ricoched off the trash bin on the sidewalk I was hiding alongside, and an eyeblink later one officer took aim and drilled the miscreant in the head. News reports later revealed the officer was not only a rookie, but had'nt drawn his revolver before on a call. The second yegg was knocked backward when his pal fell. Life does imitate art, and I didn't need to buy a ticket for that performance. Unfortunately, I still didn't get to make my purchases as the store was now a crime scene.

Bhe did it ecause he's the hero Colorado deserves, but not the one it needs right now. So, we'll hunt him, because he can take it. Because he's not our hero. He's a silent guardian. A watchful protector. A Dark Knight
