Boston killings a game-changer?
In addressing the killing of three women last weekend, the Rev. Jeffrey Brown, executive director of the Ten Point Coalition, said at one community meeting Wednesday night in Dorchester, “We need a cultural game changer.” At another meeting the next morning in Roxbury, he exhorted, “A line has been crossed!” The declarations were because the killing of this many women all at once was seen by many as unprecedented. But Brown’s words were themselves a tragedy because nothing thus far has truly changed the game.
