Crime seems to be overblown in news

I was just wondering why, in a resort area like this, the newspaper chooses frequently to print crime reports on the front page, especially as the lead story?

It seems to me that it makes Hilton Head Island look a bit tawdry to our visitors. There is so much more pertinent news to know about than people shooting each other from their apartment balconies, cooking up meth, etc.

I've never subscribed to a newspaper before in the several places that I've lived that repeatedly ran this type of news on the front page.
