Setting the Record Straight

What few facts are coming out regarding the Palmdale Little League murder so far appear to render Bill Plaschke's column about it completely irrelevant. Not that Plaschke's irrelevance is any surprise. But this story appears to be another in a string of senseless, random, violent acts by teenagers -- certainly a societal problem, likely not caused by Little League. A baseball bat is, unsurprisingly, the most likely and easily obtained weapon at a Little League Field in April. And whatever "teasing" occurred would be in the context of just having, as opposed to roller hockey or water polo or riding horses or playing "Halo." Here at FJT, we like to put the responsibility where it belongs, and not on the great amorphous "Little League Monster."
