It was played Down perhaps because Public officials fear stating a Case with adequate and truthful drama lest they be accused of giving their City a bad name. This is bunk because when children play at murder the situation is real bad also for some reason All that those who run pal can raise is about $750,000 a year which is Chicken feed for the Job that needs to be done new York where some women buy dresses at $2,000 a piece can of fold $5,000,000 a year for this kind of work.
