Breaking News: Murder in Boston

Four young men were found shot to death in the Dorchester section of Boston last night. This despite the best efforts of clergy and police to bring the crime wave under control.

It is predicted that Boston will have a record number of homicides this year. Most people hardly take notice since the victims are usually poor and black. The media simply provide the numbers. Compare coverage of crime in our urban areas with the coverage of the white high school girl who disappeared in Aruba.
