Last October, an autopsy by the Cook County medical examiner’s office determined that a 3-month-old South Side girl was the victim of homicide. The event remains unreported largely outside Chicago local media, but it appears that she may have been bashed to death by a parent.
Not really newsworthy, I guess, unless you live in Chicago. I assume that kind of thing happens sometimes. It does here in my home-town, too.
Still, I do wonder how much police time is dedicted to solving such an incident, compared to the police attention given to fucking Michael Jackson and his stupid fucking doctor and his stupid fucking drug habit and his stupid, horrible family.
I don’t live in LA. I’m not sure why I should be bombarded with information about some rich, insane arsehole and his botched assisted suicide attempt / overdose / predatory doctor. I’m sure that kind of thing happens from time to time in “LA rich people land.” But that’s not where I live. So, how is that news?
Basically, I think it must be almost impossible for police to maintain their integrity about time and resources when this kind of shit happens.
