There's been a murder!

[The title of this post should be read in the style of top Maryhill detective Taggart, with emphasis on both the r's in murder (see youtube for various crap examples).]

In the newly gentrified, up-and-coming, area of Glasgow called Ruchill (it's pretty much part of the west end now don't you know) a flavour it's past infamy still lives on in the form of murder most horrid (although in the past it was mainly car theft and petty vandalism apparently.) The reason that this is of note to me is that it happened on the street where I live, but being out of the country I've not had to deal with it first hand. This happened in broad daylight in the middle of the afternoon to, which makes it slightly more disturbing. Hopefully it'll be a one off occurrence and the area will be back to it's less murderous ways by the time I return next month.
