For those of you who like to look at maps, here are the approximate locations for homicides in the months of June, July, and the first couple days of August. I troll the various local papers and coroner's press releases to assemble the map.
I started this macabre hobby after my image of Pomona didn't gel with the image I was reading in the local papers. Conspiracy? I doubt it. Is it a lack of understanding of PR within the city? I would venture to say, probably. Is it likely to influence who shops here, who buys homes here, who rents here, and what businesses locate here? Probably.
I'm not saying that image is everything, just the most important thing.
