"Indianapolis' violent year has become more so with two holiday weekend shootings, including one that killed a decorated officer."
Yes, we made national news again today (this report is via the Associated Press) -- and not in a good way.
This Indianapolis Observer wonders where all the trolls who attacked Mayor Bart Peterson for the homicide rate are hiding, now that Mayor Greg Ballard's administration is cruising toward the all-time high number of homicides in a single year (and it's only July).
But, look! shiny! we've got the Pacers and the Colts and Indy Eleven and a Cricket Park and a soon-to-be-renovated Natatorium...!
