Description

The Birmingham News reports on "the effect of homicide on children and family members in Jefferson County, Alabama's largest county." Birmingham is known for having one of the highest homicide-per-capita rates in the country. The reporters find that many families have seen family members die by murder generation by generation in a "cycle of violence", and that the state has failed to provide any counselling or financial aid to the survivors of homicide.
