One Death, Four Stories

A guy got stabbed to death last night on Staten Island (about a quarter mile or so from my front door).
How it plays in today’s papers:

Newsday: Bare-boned facts of the matter (it’s a Long Island paper…they don’t really give a damn);

NY Daily News: Along same line as Newsday but screws up relationship between victim and accused, mentions “local gang” involvement possible (the neighborhood is a notorious Gansta town);

Staten Island Advance: More details (it did happen in their back yard, after all), including an attempt to attached some blame for the brawl on the 911 system. Nobody is doubting whether this is “gang-related,” but the local rag doesn’t deem it newsworthy to mention this place is one of the highest gang-crime corners of Staten Island…might piss off local “community” honchos;

NY Post: ‘S.I. BLOODS GANG SLAY’

The area in West Brighton has a longtime reputation as a focal point for crack distribution. In February, 30 members of the local “Deuce Mob” and “Mob-Up” gangs were charged with conspiring to distribute crack.

“Everybody is quiet here,” said one neighbor. “We’re frightened. We don’t want to talk about it. It’s too dangerous.”
