Q ok, but are you a buddhist? 000723
birdmad nearly a decade ago

two young men broke into a buddhist temple out on the extreme western suburb of town

what began as a robbery by inept youth became a massacre

the murders were a scandal in themselves, the ensuing investigation was even more so

seven guys from Tucson were detained on the basis of one of their friends who happened to be a few beers short of a six pack

the case against them fell apart as the days following their detention rolled on

it would later turn out that the culprits were a small group of young men in their late teens including one with ties to the temple

for those lost at Wat Promkunaram i pay my respects

it was a cloudy summer day
not unlike today
what's it to you?
who go
