Re: "Detectives seek person who burned transient man" (TNT, 3-24).
Throughout history, revered political and religious leaders have orated that as a society, we are judged by how we care for the least among us. In Pierce County, a homeless man was recently intentionally set on fire.
There's no news yet on who could have done this unspeakably vicious act, but I await that first step toward some justice for this man who has been at Harborview with severe burns for almost two weeks.
But a different concern keeps nagging me: No one seems to care. I've been asking around the community, especially those in our county who officially help the homeless, and no one seems to even know about it, much less be as outraged as it seems we should be.
Never miss a local story.
Where are our leaders voicing their concern? Is this the way we in Pierce County deal with "the least among us" - by seemingly turning a blind eye? Please say it ain't so.
