Views on Tagging

Tagging is a crime, killing is a worse crime.

I was delighted to read in the Platform, ("What Should We Do About Tagging," Feb. 13) the wonderfully civilized opinions from Diane Alexander and Frank DiPaola. They both acknowledge that tagging is 100% wrong, which is why the law prosecutes it as it does killers. They also both agreed that is absolutely unwise to confront delinquent people, instead advising to report them.

In these times of radical judgments, it is refreshing to read wise people who still have the blessed ability to be impartial, an almost forgotten quality.
