What happened the wee girl was awful and sorry for slightly off topic but the media (social & MSM) definitely drives or determines who gets mourned and who doesn't. Compare Aisling to the Mongolian lady stabbed in Dublin....another one is Sarah Everard to the Muslim girl in South East London. One all over the papers, the other hardly mentioned despite being weeks apart.

Yeah absolutely, occupation always gets mentioned in the first line of the story. Marketing executive Sarah Everard, Teacher Aisling Murphy etc. You donít really see that when itís someone unemployed or doing menial work murdered. Itís been like that for years now I suppose. There is certainly a hierarchy of victims

And a hierarchy of assailants too. I wonder what the narrative would be if the alleged killer was a 30 year old GAA, rugby or soccer star from the town?

Do you mean heíd get a easier time if he was a local star or a worse time.

There is always a hierarchy when it comes to these cases. Age and looks play a part in the emotional response as well as colour, background, occupation. It is just human nature as all people make judgements.

People are more emotionally involved when a victim looks like them or has a lot in common with them

If someone got shot dead in a gangland or traveller feud, most people on here (or anywhere else for that matter) wouldnít give 2 Fv{ks

It even goes beyond what people look like. The Mongolian lady just didn't know many Irish people and was not in widespread associations like Comhaltas or the GAA to say nothing of a school.

If your granny dies in the normal way or a well known author or TV person dies there is a difference in coverage.

Why is the face blurred out of the person of interest riding the bike that was caught on CCTV?

It's a fuckin media circus and now they are all warning the plebs on social media not to post things on social media.
They gave enough details on the initial suspect to identify him, then blamed Social Media.

Chaos at court today and all the outlets with reporters there after earlier tweeting he will at the courthouse at 8.15pm.

Reports on Twitter of a Slovakian Roma getting a beating on a street by a gang of men in Dublin because he was a ďfriendĒ of the accused.

Do you mean heíd get a easier time if he was a local star or a worse time.

I genuinely donít know but I suspect an easier time.

Two parts to that one:

Does it make a good story? 'Local star' would definitely be a big story and get the coverage, same as 'recent immigrant' has.

Does it make the alleged criminal more relatable to the average reader/viewer/journalist? 'Local star' definitely more relatable so you tend to get the mitigating factors rolling out - he was under pressure in some way, partner recently left him, financial issues etc. Makes it easier to separate ourselves from him but also starts to give the perpetrator an out - wasn't really his fault in some way.
