Art Imitates Life

In Painted Black, Philip Quinlan treats the homeless like commodities, less important than lab rats.  Even the police have more important things to do than worry about a missing street kid.

In real life, it’s sometimes not much different.  In California, a serial killer appears to be choosing victims simply because they are homeless.  If no one cares about you, if people don’t even notice you, or wish you weren’t there even if they do notice you, you’re an easy target.

Two of the killings took place at night and one in the late afternoon.No motive has been determined, and investigators have found no connection among the victims beyond their homelessness.
