We can’t afford to accept murder as part of city life

Oh damn! I thought he was writing about Chester...
"...one could say that city residents have learned to live with violence; accept murder; especially for those engaged in degenerative behavior. 
Our massive murder counts have made us immune to the fact that lives are being taken. 
When we forget that murder is murder, even for those involved in antisocial behavior, then we die, too. 
One could compare (Chester) to a winter globe, picked up, shaken and then set down. 
Life eventually settles until the next dust up of swirling headlines that report another (Chester) murder. 
We have grown accustomed to a violence that folds us into compromised positions of apathy."
