Suburb Watch

This Link: Chicago Tribune | Bond denied for father in daughter’s killing goes on mention a suburban murder. I am a bit disturbed, but not surprised, about the statement that, “additional charges may be filed, pending an autopsy.”

Suburbia has it’s share of crime, but it rarely makes front page news. In my experience, suburban crime tend to be a bit more disturbing and get a lot more press time. As an aside, it’ll be interesting to track this news story, just to see how much press time it actually gets in comparison to other stories.

I do have another reason for bringing attention to this story–the majority of my family lives in the suburb mentioned in the article. They’re telling me that this crime is the talk of the town, and a complete and total shock. I am too jaded to be shocked by this, but, not too cynical to not feel for the family and the community. I hope that Clarendon Hills, and the survivors of this tragedy, can find some solace soon.

    That story turns my stomach and brings tears to my eyes. As it has been said in the movie Parenthood, “. . .you need a license to buy a dog, to drive a car – hell, you even need a license to catch a fish. But they’ll let any butt-reaming asshole be a father.”
