The summer of 2012 is shaping up to be not only a hot one by temperature, but by body count. The recent shooting of a Denver police officer during a jazz concert in Denver’s City Park, seems to be setting the tone for what could potentially be a summer of violence. Now, news that a teenage lesbian couple were shot in a public park in Texas, further sets the stage for a long, hot, violent summer.
We will be adding an additional post on this topic later in the week.
Summer has just begun….is this the tone we can expect for the entire season? Let us know, share your comments.
UPDATE: Today’s attendance of the Jazz in the Park series in Denver’s City Park is expected to set a record. A tribute is planned for fallen DPD Officer Celena Hollis, and Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper, and Denver Mayor Michael Hancock among others are expected to attend as well.
