    Timesonline:
    Policewoman arrested over teenage model murder.
    Shannon 'tethered to roof beam during kidnap ordeal'.
    Review ordered after tragic life of Baby P.
    Boy, 15, shot dead on street in Derby.

    Yes it has always been like this. The only difference now is that modern communications mean that we get to hear about them.

    Everything is the fault of the press.

    Actually, its been worse. Take a look at the historical rates for murder etc going back several hundred years - it gets better every decade, although has flattened out a bit lately.

    read this : http://freakonomics.blogs.nytimes.co...the-newspaper/

    Life is much safer than it was in 'the good old days'.

    Chin up, its all a matter of perspective - that knife in your chest is half out, not half in...
