Headline in The New York Times recently: “When Gangs Killed Gay Men for Sport: Australia Reviews 88 Deaths.” The “game” was forcing Gay men off a cliff high above Sydney harbor, which police knew about, tolerated, explained away and even encouraged, without investigating the deaths, interviewing witnesses or looking for evidence. (I have personal knowledge that the same thing happens in U.S. jurisdictions too.) When members of a demographic group are deemed expendable by the major institutions of society, the result is to make them the prey of all. But Steve Johnson still wants to know what happened to his brother Scott in 1988. (Matthew Abbott/The New York Times)
