It's one of life's mysteries that anyone could defend the hell-hole that is Southampton.

A Police Officer of my acquaintance who works in the town calls it 'the wild west'.

I'd like to evacuate (most) people, and get the Luftwaffe back in.

Gotham City indeed.

Someone made a crack about the city turning into a Gotham city yesterday and at the time I thought it was insensitive but now I can't help but wonder.

Crime in Southampton is getting more shocking, increased shoplifting, assaults, sexual attacks and now another murder.

It's about time something is done, we need more police in our streets and tougher penalties for offenders.

My thoughts are with the poor man's family and hope justice will be served

Move on with your life & don't bother going to the effort of logging on to this website & commenting about a story that doesn't affect you in any way then.
Especially if you no longer live in the area & find Southampton so offensive?. ;-)

Eh? Heaven is a "low crime area"?

If the Big Man can't eradicate crime given:
a) His omnipotence
b) His punishment options and
c) only the good 'uns are supposed to get in

what chance have we mere mortals got.

You missed home invasions and arson off the list as they too are very popular, other than that - spot on.

"Small white spheres have been placed throughout the road, possibly to indicate the position of people involved or where evidence was found."

Er, that's what a murder is.

This is a newspaper reporting real life - it's not all pleasant things, I'm afraid.

You can't complain about it not being nice after calling it 'appropriate'.

Murder is not a nice thing. It's shocking, upsetting and ultimately dramatic for the people affected by it.

As a comment above says, this is a newspaper website and it is not their job to sugar the pill of reality. It's job to report what has happened - which is what they're doing.
