Local Kentucky residents getting perturbed about coverage of census worker murder

WYKT in Kentucky reports that national coverage of the murder tends to portray it as either anti-government loonies (as some liberals are implying) or drug-crazed hillbillies with guns. A local minister says the corruption and drug-running has been cleaned up considerably, and that sickening violence like this can happen anywhere. While this might be a bit of a whitewash, there’s also considerable truth in it. (One of the most horrific instances of violence I’ve heard of was the Cheshire home invasion in Connecticut in 2007 when we lived there. It took place in a wealthy Yankee WASP area and still gives me the heebie-jeebies.)
