This just in: Guns don’t kill people, Rappers do

Whilst taking a brief glance at the news headlines on the BBC website today, I noticed a story billed something like “Rappers jailed over death plot”; two guys have been jailed for attempting to murder one of their girlfriends because she was pregnant (the story is tragic, but not the subject of this post). The title of the article didn’t sit right with me, I couldn’t see the relevance of the fact that they were rappers, it’s not like they are famous rappers, and the BBC doesn’t normally state the profession of would-be murderers. I decided that maybe I was being a bit sensitive to the whole thing, but maybe I wasn’t – I’ve just noticed the title has been changed to “Music pair jailed over death plot“.
