Crime down, senseless murders up
A 14-year-old boy was killed at a MARTA station over a cell phone he didn’t even have.
Rueben Hand was on his way home after watching the Peach Drop with friends, his aunt, Lena Barnes, told the AJC. But the high school freshman never made it to the train. His family says he died after his throat was cut with a knife.
I’m opposed to the death penalty but would gladly look the other way if an angry mob tracked down the monster responsible for this atrocity.
How in the hell did this happen at a MARTA station on a night when downtown was packed with visitors?
