This has my admiration as the kind of event a thoughtful and sensative public servant organizes. Is there an equivalent in Cincinnati?

Hundreds gather to remember victims of violence | www.daytondailynews.com

(As I recall, all due credit goes to Montgomery County Presecutor Matt Heck.)

Matthew Heck has a reputation for being very lenient on criminals. Search Esrati.com for many, many examples.

An equivalent event.

Without trying to name names, Cincinnati has thoughtful and sensitive -- in various areas -- public servants, some not even classified as such.

Name's Mathias, not Matthew.

Montgomery County, Ohio, Prosecutor

Nothing brings back the dead, so nothing can restore life to "as it was."

I don't think most people maintain police and presecutors to achieve any real "tit for tat." They're maintained in the hope of some degree of peaceful existence.

Whatever. His reputation as a prosecutor stinks and contributes to crime in Dayton. Pull something like you could get away with in Montgomery County in Greene County, and you will get very different results.

Well, every time the Cincinnati cops shoot someone there's a gathering to remember the victim(s) of that particular violent event ...

I think there will always be debate relative to how aggressive a prosecutor is perceived to be. I was not thrilled when the Warren county prosecutor stipulated a Mason male arrested as the organizer of a drug ring was basically let off with a slap on the wrist since he was still 17 at the time of the arrest. Several of the older persons arrested have been dealt some substantial sentences. This I do not agree with, if you are capable of being the organizer, you should receive a like punishment.

So is there a perception the lack of an aggressive pursuit by a prosecutor in Montgomery County is responsible for the crime rate in Dayton? I for one take opposition to that. A public official has a duty to perform under the law to the best of their ability. But to say they are easy on criminals to the point the criminals will prey on Montgomery Co. that is ludicrous.

I for one have always enjoyed my time spent in Dayton. Those who seem hell-bent on bashing Dayton I have little regard for. If you dislike Dayton, fine leave, the Daytonians will not miss you. Same for Cincinnati.

I think the event is a lovely idea. I think some other people must think so, too, or it wouldn't have taken place for 22 years.

Kjbrill, may I ask if you read the article? Your comment doesn't answer my question or even address the matter.

As for my perpetual critics:

As I recall, I discovered Esrati about two decades before TomJones123 discovered Dayton, hence have no need of any reference to same, be it in the past, present or future.

I do not think a Cincinnati or any other city cop shooting at what appears to be criminal intent has any resemblance whatsoever to someone with criminal intent shooting or otherwise killing an innocent victim. Ohiogirl81 is obviously confused.

And, so, again, can someone from Cincinnati answer my question?
