Crime causes fear


Editor, The Commercial:

The cycle of life begins with the rain that falls upon the leaf. Yet the leaf absorbs the rain. Then, there’s a bug that eats the leaf and a frog that eats the bug. Then there’s a snake that eats the frog. In other words, something has to die in order for something else to live.

I can accept this, but what I can’t accept are the unnecessary killings in this city. It doesn’t make any earthly sense why some people kill for no apparent reasoning.

Pine Bluff is not a concrete jungle. There are many factors as to why Pine Bluff is so gun ho, but one thing is certain: people in this city live in complete fear of each other and they have every right to be. Yet, why is it that one must live in constant fear in order to live?

What? This is Pine Bluff. You’re not scared? I’m shaking in my boots!
