Everyday you turn on the news or read stories on the net there is more and more bizarre crimes popping up, or just plain cold blooded killings taking place for no reason!! What the hell is wrong with people nowadays, are they that bored with life or just plain evil or stupid??

Maybe too much Jerry Springer, or maybe they feel that doing some stupid crime spree or brutal murder is the only way they'll get their 15 minutes of fame??  ???

There has been more murders in Tampabay in the last twelve months.  At least it seems that way when I watch the news.

You are right mjs, there is at least 1-2 murders every week now around the Tampa Bay area and it used to be maybe 1 a MONTH several years ago.

I can remember the time when there wasn't  muder on the news every morning.  I agree, what IS happening?  Sad commentary on life, isn't it?

And some of them seem to be random or for completely stupid 'reasons.'  How about innocent bystanders in drive-bys?

A lot of them are concentrated in a small area of Tampa.  Thankfully out here in Valrico the crime rate is still fairly low.

And it's not just shootings but all this "baby mama drama" pisses me off too, with people having several kids with several different parents all over the place. Either use some protection or keep that thing in your pants, or else you deserve whatever happens to you as a result of your laziness and stupidity!!

Did you guys see Bowling For Columbine? Whatever your thoughts are on Michael Moore,
the film pointed out that it's not because we have so many guns. Go to Canada and
you don't see the kind of senseless killing that you see here. So, as Chrispy says,
what the hell is wrong with people? Is it the violence that is on the news every
day that is feeding the problem? I don't know. The violence is not new. It's
been that way for as long as I can remember. In some states, the murder
rate is up and in others, it's down.

I live in an expensive part of Manhattan Beach. One of the benefits is the very low
crime rate. Maybe one murder a year. It's one of the reason I don't mind paying
up the nose for a place here.

When I last lived in the TB area (20 yrs ago), everytime I turned on the morning news there were stories about a murder. Usually convenience store robbery/murder.  This is nothing new in TB.  Sounds like things haven't changed. One more reason not to return to TB (in addition to the outrageous inflated housing costs for poor quality homes, and the inflated property taxes and home insurance that comes with it).

I have to totally disagree with that having lived here for about 37 years now, and I am also a news junkie as well.

I blame it on the rap, the porno, and the Mary Clark Higgans books.

I checked around. Crime rate has gone down. It may look like there are more murders but that is
not the case in Tampa or Florida. Sorry, Chrispy, you're wrong on this one. At least when it
comes to the Florida or Tampa crime rates.

Those are stats Joe and I understand that, but just this week alone I have heard of 2 shootings and one actual murder that has taken place in the Bay area which is not very comforting to keep hearing about over & over.
