    Would you say the same thing about one of NYC's boroughs or one of LA's neighborhoods?  There have been more than a few situations in which the "local residents"  of one part of a city have defended even the most heinous offenses/offenders.  Heck, we see similar behavior in this virtual community we name "DailyKos" on a regular basis.

    This behavior is defined by community, not geography.  It's really easy to blast away when the two happen to coincide, but that requires us to willfully ignore identical situations in which the two do not coincide.
