We Must Solve This Epidemic of Bat Crime

12 06 2007

Two men, brothers in Lebanon, Missouri, and the wife of the older brother, have been charged with murder for whacking to death another Lebanon man, and seriously injuring a friend of the homicide victim, both victims battered with a baseball bat and a metal rod.

The whole incident springs from the fact that the younger suspected murderer was jealous that the homicide victim seemed to be moving on his girlfriend via cell phone text messages.

Incidents like this are the fault of rouge sporting supply store owners, who will irresponsibly market and sell baseball bats to anyone, without identification and background checks. It’s time for the state legislature to enact bat control.
