I make no comment on the death of Nicola Bulley. For her family this is a truly devastating time and I hope they find peace.
Leaving aside social media one thing I do find disturbing is how the so called main stream media treat some lives as more important than others. In 2022, 69 teenagers were murdered in the UK. Most were knifed, most were male, and most were black, and most were poor.
A 16 year old black boy knifed to death in an inner city housing estate hardly merits two minutes on the local news. But his life is surely as sacred as that of anyone else. His family will grieve just the same, will they not?
