Stomp Out These Weeds

I had hoped we were past cross burnings, but it appears last night's occurrences in Durham might be part of a rising tide of hatred. Ten days ago, a wave of German-based hate spam was unleashed across the world, and I understand that Nazi flyers showed up in Adams Farm at the same time.

I don't think that ignoring these latest events will be enough. Law enforcement needs to track down the guilty and see them punished. Citizens need to confront expressions of hate whenever it is witnessed. Otherwise, this twisted thinking might just grow like the weed it is.
