    For what it's worth, I've never seen LTownZag post anything but objective data and interpretations of said data. At times, on other topics, he has politely disagreed or disputed points that I have...

    BLM's focus and advocacy tends to be less about the crime, and death, as horrible as both of those things are. They aren't really a subject of controversy. In general, perpetrators of violent crimes...
