Another sad tale of family murder. The lack of comments tells me people are not shocked by this anymore. After all, it happens at least once a week.

I'm so disgusted at reading about family murders almost every day here in this country in the JT. Is this kind of sensationism news coverage so important for everyone to read? It won't make your readers better people by informing us of these crimes. How about good news.
