The sad death of Officer Kerrie Orozco is certainly another black-on-white murder that shall go unnoticed in the major media, as James Kirkpatrick writes
But it also occasions a second observation: If Orozco had been at home where she belonged, caring for her children, Marcus Wheeler wouldn't have had the chance to murder her. "Maternity leave
" and fighting crime are terms that just don't go together.
The irony of the situation is that the same people who think Orozco should have been a cop and push women into positions for which nature does not equip them are the same people who hide the true dimension of black-on-white crime.
Those children deserved a mother at home, a mother who was more worried about them than anything else, including the Marcus Wheelers of this world. Instead, they got a part-time mother. Now they don't even have that.
