Rape and Murder on Sydney Rd.
Yes, terrible things happen every day, every hour. But this happened on my doorstep and I can't help feeling I could have done something. Instead of making me frightened, as it would've done when I was younger and more of a target for abuse, I am getting into fights. Yesterday the streets were clogged with the gentlemen of the Press. I asked a Channel 7 cameraman (rather peremptorily I admit) to get out of my way and he replied "Calm down, luv!". Obviously; crimes against women committed outside my door should leave me calm. 'Parasites!' I hissed. 'Bloodsuckers!' 'Hey' he says " We're catching murderers!"
