Death is around every corner and nobody is immune to it.
100 murders, neighborhoods that are war zones, kids sleeping in bath tubs to avoid drive by shootings, growing gang membership and your daily mystery body found in a park. Those things are only worth 60 secs on TV and 2 paragraphs on page 5 of the local paper.
Football player MURDERS his girlfriend and kills himself and the whole city takes note. Lets face it, if this was done by anyone else NONE of you would give 2 shits about the story.
This city is developing a whole culture of murder, what makes this guy immune to it? His job?
