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.
