The Bleeding Leads

What's a bit maddening is there is almost no follow up reporting on gun crimes in Philadelphia, except for certain types of victims. It took me awhile to notice that. A young man was shot around the corner from me not that long ago, and I have no idea if the perps were caught or what the motive was. I'm not claiming this wasn't covered - I have no idea - but I pay a reasonable amount of attention to local news and I never saw it.

The murders are reported, but they're just kind of ticked off. Rarely are there actual stories.
