I did an essay in college on violence in Wisconsin.
I used headline for an attention grabber. My paper read something like this
The body of a 13 year old boy was found mutilated in Humbolt park. Victims name is still unknown. Police have no suspect.
45 year old man shoots his family then turns gun on himself. Investigators are working on motive.
Another Co-ed is raped at gun point near UWM campus. This is the Sixth girl raped this week. Police are looking for suspects.
The Mini-mart on 25 and locust was robbed about 12:30 last night. The robbers got away with about 250.00. The Clerk was shaken up but unharmed. ( I gave about 5 different crimes and then added something like )
These are just a few of the crimes that occur ed in the last week her in Alabama. ( then go to this website for statistic) http://www.acjic.alabama.gov/crime.cfm give a quick run down on the crimes that happen over a course of a year.
Other wise you can
use the Stat to grab their attention.
I took the violent approach. I also found that that more violent the crime the more interested everyone was.
