Not always one thing to blame
Last week, there was a long, worrisome day-long experience for many in and around the Princeton area. At first, there were reports of an armed, suicidal man on the loose. As of today, we don’t know if that was true or not. We don’t know if there was ever anything to worry about. Pending investigations will bring forth the facts and let us know exactly what the situation was. However, it did make me think of the all too common occurrences around the country involving guns, violence and family.
The problem is the reaction to these incidents is often misguided. Bob Costas and his critics are good examples. One portion of the media says take all the guns away; the other half tells us we need more guns. I think the best perspective lies somewhere in between.
On Nov. 30, reports out of Kansas City told the nation about Chiefs’ linebacker Jovan Belcher. Belcher shot and killed his girlfriend then drove to Arrowhead Park where he shot himself in front of head coach Romeo Crenell and general manager Scott Pioli.
