On Monday, I suggested that the intense 24-hour coverage of mass shootings in America can actually distract us from the true scope of the problem. Here are a couple local headlines to hammer home the point. Chicago Sun Times: 28 shot, 4 fatally, in Chicago over weekend. ABC News: Gun violence continues in Philadelphia after 11 shot in 24 hours: The city is on pace to surpass 600 shooting deaths in 2021. (600 in one city in one year. That’s what I’d call a mass shooting.)

+ And on the way different crimes involving different victims are handled by the police and media. After decades of speculation, Paul Flores charged with the murder of Kristin Smart.
