Wrong lesson

February 10, 2009

Re "Scholar haunted by early chapter," Column, Feb. 3

What a great message to send to gang members who may be considering changing their ways: Get out of the gang, go to school, acquire a taste for literature, get a master's degree, aspire to be a teacher and, oh, by the way, you might still get deported.

I can't believe that an immigration hearing is being held for Juan Obed Silva. Deporting Obed would be an example of vengeance, not justice.

What incentive would that offer any other gang member to reform?
