When I moved to Central Virginia (Chesterfield) in 1995, Richmond was leading the nation for murders per capital. We are barely into the spring and about two months away from the heat of the summer and Richmond and surrounding areas are on fire!
We could be on our way to regaining the title "murder capitol of the nation". More African American men are killing and being killed. No place is off limits, places like VSU have experienced murders as recently as Tuesday of this week.
Now two brothers have been killed over one of the most stupidest thing; dog waste!!!!
