Are we becoming desensitised?

It says a lot when the most read story on the RG website is ‘Husband and wife open new Hamilton ice cream shop’ and the third most read story is ‘Pair guilty of Clarke murder’.
I wish the couple behind the ice cream venture every bit of luck they can get – I know how hard it is to start a business. Be sure, I’ll be bringing my children….
But, it has had more eyeballs than two men convicted of murder. What does that say? To me it says we are getting desensitized.

Gone are the days when the mere sounds of gun fire would make the front page, indeed gone are the days when murder trials make the front page. Gone are the days when a murder conviction is the main story on the front page.
This is not a criticism of the RG, it is an observation that we are becoming so used to these things that they no longer shock us, let alone really interest us.
The police have done a great job cracking down on gangsters and along with the DPP securing convictions, but the problem is, these things have become the norm…….
