The headline out of Chicago this morning is sadly predictable.
“Mother loses 2nd son to gun violence in Roseland shooting; 1 other killed, 1 injured.”
While Baltimore captured media attention for the suspicious death of Freddy Gray, Gray’s peers continued doing what they do best.
“Away from protests, Baltimore gun violence continues”
The very concept of “object violence” is, of course, absurd on its face.
When someone is intentionally run over with a car, we do not attack the automobile industry for the vehicle’s misuse, nor do we attempt to then constrict the ability of other drivers to buy and drive that model of car.
When someone is intentionally beaten with a bat, we do not call out the manufacturer of that bat, nor the larger baseball industry, and insist that they are culpable for the misuse of that product.
