Media and Public Ignoring Violence?

Jim writes: There has been little news coverage about the recent murder in the Meadows. Or the attack and robbery at the BB&T on 5th Street Ext. Why? Because the residents of these areas do not have the clout necessary to demand the police department’s attention? Have murders and other acts of violence become so commonplace in Cville that they are now brushed aside to one day’s coverage on page 4 of the Region & State section of the newspaper? Perhaps the county government is hoping that the recent problems at Meadows will take care of themselves. This sort of apparent complacency does not bode well for the future of our community.

Somehow, I hadn’t heard a thing about either these things. Are these being ignored? If so, why?
