In reply to the “Local African-American males speak out” (AFN, Sept. 15). These four self proclaimed “community leaders” harshly criticize Linda Turley-Hansen’s (“Not racism, and not guns; it’s moral absence that’s doing the killing,” AFN, Sept. 6) factual, if blunt, article on the death of Chris Lane, in a long diatribe that has too many racially charged slants and accusations to answer succinctly. No one is elected or appointed a “community leader.” Being highly opinionated and putting out lots of racially motivated editorial pieces does not make one a leader of anything.
Let’s not let Arizona’s Medical Marijuana Act get in the way of the “War on Drugs”, which is basically a full employment jobs program for cops.

“Am I better off now than 4 years ago? Absolutely! I sold off a large portion of my investments the last year and a half of the Bush administration out of fear.
