- Police say girl suffered seizure and died after being forced to run for three hours by grandmother, stepmother
So, some BAD parents make a child run, in ALABAMA, and that child dies. Should this story matter to me in North Carolina (or even if I lived in Alabama for that matter)?
The girl, Savannah Hardin, was a third-grader at Carlisle Elementary School. Superintendent Alan Cosby said: "This is obviously a very tragic, devastating, heartbreaking situation," Cosby said. "Nothing like this has ever happened before."
Which is why it is news!
Notice what Fox did below that story too. It linked the story to an accidental school shooting in Seattle and the trial outcome of the UVA Lacrosse player who murdered his ex-girlfriend.
this fits in nicely with facts of media coverage of crime laid out in the book.
