The New York Times, “Quest for a New Life Ends in a Tangle of Gang Ties”

This year The New York Times has been writing up every murder in the 40th Precinct of the South Bronx, one of the most murderful chunks of the city. Here’s the latest. I devoured all the preceding installments about three weeks ago. I love this true crime lens applied to victims (or criminals!) who otherwise might not even receive an obituary. Look to the left-hand column for the other dead. Plus, if reactions across the internet are any indication, it’s pissing off conservatrolls that folks living on the fringe are receiving compassionate treatment.
