Personal tragedies

Every murder is a tragedy, but the reality is that most murders are not widely reported.

Last year there were over 500 murders in UK and close to 2000 in the United States. Most were not known by you or I.

Those who seek to make political capital out of events should familiarise themselves with these facts.

Already there is a great clamour: why is the Media not making what has happened front-page news? Once more activists have their broad brushes out and are playing the victim-card.

But the true victims here are the deceased. The rest of us are mere onlookers. Please don’t exploit this incident.
