This reply reminds me of the Black Country Bugle, a weekly newspaper dedicated to the history of, er, the Black Country. On the rare occasions I've read it they tend to have a front page lead along the lines of "People are afraid as never before. Criminals roam unchallenged, crime is rife and the streets are no longer safe to walk. Never have there been such violent, lawless times. Inside - the next part of our fascinating series Horrific Black Country Murders Through the Ages."
