Kudos To Conley

Last June, after eight-year-old Liquarry Jefferson was shot to death -- reportedly by a cousin who picked up Liquarry's older brother's gun -- the Phoenix wrote this in an editorial:
It is not too extreme to suggest that, if we are going to be serious about protecting people from death by bullets, then District Attorney Dan Conley should seriously consider bringing charges of negligent manslaughter — or at least child endangerment — against those who allowed this to happen.

Perhaps that will get the message through to the people who casually tote handguns around the city, stashing them in communally accessible hiding places, tossing them onto coffee tables, and tucking them under mattresses.

Yesterday, Conley announced that he has indicted both the mother and brother on charges of involuntary manslaughter. Good for him.
