Almost all of these were very short news stories blamed on “personal disputes” between families. But how “personal” are these murders when they put the whole country on edge, eroding confidence in the state’s ability to protect its citizens?
Murder and shootings are not “personal issues” no matter who commits them. The public deserves to have these crimes throughly investigated both by the government and the press, which should not accept such vague explanations. A little bit of digging–even a few phone calls–may reveal that these crimes could be less isolated than they seem. Either way, the public has a right to know more, much more.
