You call 911 and we come, but what are you going to do for 5, 6, 7 or even 10 minutes it takes us to get there?
There you go. When seconds count, the Police are just minutes away.

There are shootings in DC neighborhoods, then there is a shooting on the National Mall. The second one occurred in the area tourists go.
In Detroit, people get shot every day. The only time it's big news is when it happens near the stadia, the medical center, the courts, the fireworks/festivals or some other part of town where white people still go.
Rich, suburban, women getting murdered is always big news, though. Especially if the husband is the only suspect. I'd guess 3-5 people have been shot and killed in Detroit over the past couple of weeks, but the big story is the woman from Grosse Pointe who was stabbed to death and her body was dumped on the east side of Detroit. A "handyman" is claiming he did it because the husband paid him to do so. Until Whitney died, this was the lead off story on the local news all week.

This was a suicide. All wrapped up and over with."Today, [the American voter] chooses his rulers as he buys bootleg whiskey, never knowing precisely what he is getting, only certain that it is not what it pretends to be." - H.L. Mencken
