Why They Took "Neighbor" out of the 'Hood
The man on the left was "convicted... for robbing and fatally shooting his childhood neighbor last winter" [emphasis added] — Man convicted of murder in death of Edline Chun. I can't say I knew her, but she was a colleague and I met her two days before her murder. I had hoped to work with her.
She is described as "well-known community activist" and her murder is accused of "robbing this community of somebody very special" [emphases added]. I don't think the 'hood in which she chose to live was much of a "community" either.
