    Years ago this might have raised gasps. Now it seems a weekly occurrence.

    I totally agree regarding the fact that crimes of this nature have lost their power to shock. We seem to accept them as a matter of course. The late Sen. Daniel Patrick Moynihan spoke about "defining deviancy downward" - basically, allowing social and ethical standards to slip rather than to take an active stand and say these things are unacceptable. This is an extreme example of that, but an example nevertheless - that we no longer gasp at crimes of this nature.
