Why would the BBC report on the life of this one knife victim and not hundreds of others?

    Because unlike many victims this man was not a gang member or youff dealing drugs etc, in those cases the ‘victim’ is invariably a talented actor/model/footballer etc but also a gang member with a think skin, like his killer.

    This man was the victim of such a criminal

    Sadly this serial thug cannot be named, although with his track recite he should be.

    Who wants to sift through reports of "Hundreds," of knifing victims? Oh actually yourself and another "Person," on the look out for "Savages."

    Yours is however an unusual and very specific penchant and for the vast majority of cases local crime is only reported locally. In most cases there is little interest in crime unless it is unusual or local or part of a larger hot topic.

    They very often report on knife murders. In this case, a professional going about lawful business, it seems more notable.

    If the victim was an offender and involved in crime, then that tends to seem to lessen coverage. For example a young man stabbed to death in my area was a criminal who carried a knife himself, I thought the case was interesting, but it only got on local newspaper.

    It is reporting on the conviction of a teenage perpetrator. That in itself is unusual.
