Seattle Times letters to the editor

Gang violence

Find a solution

Well, we have the predictable response from Seattle’s police chief: “Too many guns on the street” [“Word on the street: Seattle violence is rising,” News, Nov. 26]. He says nothing about broken families, drugs, a gang culture enabled by the music industry, or lack of respect for human life.

I’m thankful that most people are intelligent enough to realize that the causes of violence are not so simple, and that easy answers and labels just detract from the search for real solutions.

— Larry Clemens, Poulsbo
