Due to the acquisition of new evidence, ABC's Nightline has reported that the case of the Atlanta child murders of 1981 is being re-examined. More recently a 13-year-old girl in Philadelphia was raped and murdered. Why do these violent crimes continue to permeate our existence? They happen because we as a society allow them to occur. We as a people are too tolerant of the insidious crimes of our everyday life. These daily offenses are committed by "outstanding" citizens of our country.

HOW DARE Keith Smith, director of Active Criminal Records at the Criminal Justice Center, demand the removal of a small American flag from a front desk computer! Shame on you. When you stated you wanted the front counter looking clean and uniform, you insinuated that the American flag was dirty. And don't say it was taken out of context! How dare you disrespect our flag, our country and our military. Many have died for our flag, including my son. He died a horrible death for his flag and his country, and I detest anyone who treats it with disrespect.

Yes, it was wrong and insulting for Mayor Goode to schedule the city's annual business report luncheon for a Thursday, when City Council usually meets. "Disrespectful" is what Councilman John F. Street called it. To this thin-skinned Council, no sin is more venal than "disrespect. " And Council is expert at it - both ways. Visitors and witnesses cool their heels for hours before Council deigns to hear them out; sometimes Council even adjourns without giving some the floor, no matter how long they waited.

THE GOP won the House, and we have a GOP governor and Sen. Toomey. Well, here we go with the Tea Party, and the likes of Sarah Palin, who should return to Alaska with her family and stay there. No president of this country has ever been so disrespected as President Obama, who brought us back from the brink of a total collapse of the economy. Obama is a man for all the people, and that's why the Republicans are so disrespectful toward him. Lora Neal, Philadelphia

KISSIMMEE, Fla. - Chances are, the confrontation between Cole Hamels and Bill Hall that occurred yesterday will be forgotten by the time the Astros and Phillies meet in their season-opening series at Citizens Bank Park. Even if it isn't, it probably won't matter, since Hamels isn't scheduled to pitch during the three-game set. Still, the two players' brief exchange during the second inning of the Phillies' 7-6 win is worth noting given their disparate perspectives on the events that went down.

C'MON, DAILY NEWS (July 17): "Beef with baby mama's boyfriend?" Officer Brady may not have died heroically in the line of duty, but show him and his family some respect by printing a headline without all the cliched hip-hop slang. The negative connotations used in your headline do nothing but sensationalize his death as typical, without giving readers the chance to read the story. Grow up, just a little. Deric L. Adger Philadelphia I would like an inquiry into why Officer Marc Brady is not getting the same consideration as a police officer as Highway Patrol Officer Brian Lorenzo.

Re Sony "graffiti" ads: The mayor's spokesman, Joe Grace, said the ads "violate our laws and disrespect our neighborhoods. " Well, how about Mr. Grace cleaning up some of the malt-liquor ads that only seem to be in poor neighborhoods? They are also disrespectful. I guess the folks behind those ads are not approached because they paid the price to put them up. Rodney Houston, Philadelphia

FOR MORE than a decade, Lamont Hatton watched his brother's killer, William Little - who spent 10 years in prison for the 1989 murder - walking around their South Philadelphia neighborhood, unarmed, unafraid and free. Hatton watched Little cut hair at the Jazz U Up barbershop at 16th and Tasker, and mentor young people there in the evenings, respected after his stint in prison for murder as a community hero for speaking out against guns and violence. And Hatton wondered: "Why is this man alive when my brother is dead?"

THIS, HOPEFULLY, will be the last mention of Domonic Brown until spring training. Yesterday, the Phillies outfielder went on 97.5 the Fanatic to explain that he meant no disrespect when he wore a Cowboys jersey to Sunday's Eagles game. While at the Linc, Brown tweeted a picture of himself and some buds dressed in Cowboys garb. Reaction was swift and, in some cases, nasty. Some tweeters called him names, other suggested he should be traded. On Monday, there was more of the same.

Shane Victorino was asked Thursday night if he still felt like a Phillie after two full seasons in Boston, including one that ended with a parade down Boylston Street celebrating the second World Series title of his career. The question was intended as a joke in light of the latest Papelgate incident that surfaced Wednesday night in the home clubhouse at Citizens Bank Park. The Flyin' Hawaiian opted to answer seriously and he essentially said something similar to what Phillies pitcher Jonathan Papelbon had told the Boston Globe, which predictably triggered another in a series of controversial episodes involving the highest-paid closer in baseball.

The swift kick that Gov. Wolf issued to former School Reform Commission Chairman Bill Green's rear wasn't entirely unexpected after Green ignored the governor's plea that the SRC not approve any more charter schools. Nonetheless, it was disturbing to see Green demoted. Caught between the new governor wanting no new charters and powerful legislative leaders calling for an expansion of the independent schools, the SRC approved only five of 39 applications. That seemed like a reasonable compromise in that the small number suggested that only the best applications were approved.

The judge who sentenced former District Judge Rita Arnold for hiding a citation against her son wanted to make an example of someone who abused judicial powers, Arnold's attorney argued in a Superior Court appeal filed this week. Judge John Braxton - who ordered Arnold to serve 16 to 32 months in state prison on two misdemeanors - ignored the Chester County woman's previously crime-free life, remorse, and ongoing treatment for cancer, her attorney said. Braxton, "focusing entirely on the fact that these crimes were committed in her capacity as a magisterial district judge [and for her son]

TO THE POOR, sad, worthless, foolish fools who desecrated the Frank Rizzo statue: Your stupidity is exceeded only by your ignorance. That was an ill-mannered, mean-spirited thing to do, and if you have one ounce of human dignity, you owe an apology to the Rizzo family and to our great city of Philadelphia. Rizzo was Law and Order, and so am I. It's thugs like you that we need protection from. Rizzo, Lucien Blackwell and Hardy Williams are the only elected officials who expressed compassion for the so-called little people, the old and less fortunate, and love for Philadelphia.

City Controller Alan Butkovitz on Wednesday blasted developers working near Temple University for cutting corners and criticized the Nutter administration for failing to police construction sites that have been vexing neighbors near the campus. In a "special review" of off-campus construction, Butkovitz said builders had been illegally dumping debris in vacant lots, closing streets without a permit, and allowing dust to blanket the neighborhood and runoff to flow into the sewers.

LIFE REALLY IS FULL of delicious ironies. For example, who would have thought that the governor of the most liberal state in the nation, one that is so blue you can't tell where the land ends and the Atlantic begins, gets tapped to deliver the keynote address at the Republican National Convention? And after digesting that fact, who would have imagined that the party that says it's all about women and their dignity and independence could choose to honor a string of men who have done nothing but disrespect us during their storied political careers?
