Anti-violence Rally in Plainfield
I decided to browse the Courier-News web-site to see what's going on back home (considering my parents don't tell me) and I had no clue there was an anti-violence rally.
On February 8th, 2009, Christian Tigsi, who just turned 18, was shot to death near the train station. A friend drove Tigsi to the the police station but after arriving, he passed away. The following Thursday (2/12/09) the People's Organization for Progress held an anti-violence rally in response to Plainfield's most recent homicide.
the paper reported this was the city's first of the year, but its fourth in a little over four months.
