Pasto Wall is exasperated and wrote Mayor Menino and cc’d me:
“I, for one, am tired of seeing the same old scenario played out each year, i.e., dead youth, press conferences and a political and spiritual tug of war between the same people who should be uniting to bring change to Boston. Before I ask to speak to the city over my radio and television network (Boston Praise Radio), I am asking you to hear my reason for calling for the comprehensive plan to study the root cause of homicides in our city.
Please know that I will not simply go away. I am not and have never initiated any campaign to embarrass you or your administration.
You could become the hero mayor of our city and any urban city if you care enough about the families in Boston to go along with the idea to study Boston’s youth violence problem.”
