Homicide Watch, which reported on violent criminal acts in the District, has shut down. The cause is financial, as the Washington Post explains. The blog’s inability to continue appears to be blamed the inability of any media organizations to take it over. But perhaps media organizations, which have cutback on local coverage because of their own financial constraints, are the least able to nurture this valuable public service. Since its creation in 2010, Homicide Watch has tracked the cases of 320 people arrested for murder. This is a large number, but only a fraction of those affected. Violent crime is a public health issue, and it would seem that there many organizations in the District that could contribute to maintaining the site. Hopefully, it will find a way to continue.
