Vigil for Earnell

Remember the Good Samaritan that Nick Coleman wrote about today? You know, the 53-year-old man who stopped a drunken assailant from beating on two women? And got killed for his trouble? Nobody in the neighborhood seemed to know about Earnell Luster, his bravery, or his death.

Ninth Ward Councilman Gary Schiff and couple of Phillips neighborhood groups are organizing a vigil for Earnell tomorrow night, Thursday, March 8 starting at 6 PM. It will be at the corner of East 26th and Longfellow.

It would be nice of some of you could show up for a while and acknowledge Earnell's sacrifice.

Update: The vigil has been postponed.
