Just Heartbreaking

I've written before about Louisville's escalating murder rate under Mayor Greg Fisher's watch. The latest victim was only seven years old -- eating cake at the kitchen table Sunday evening. The bullet came through the window, apparently part of a fight in the backyard next door.

Fisher is a nice guy and fairly pro-business for a Democrat. But he is out of his league when it comes to the gang violence and heroin epidemic that threaten to wipe out all the positive changes Louisville has attained in the last 20 years.

The little boy's name:  Dequante Hobbs. He lived in the Russell neighborhood and was a second grader at Wellington Elementary, no doubt looking forward to summer vacation starting in just days.

Prayers for peace for his family, repose for his soul, and justice for his murderer.
