A history of violence.

Itamogi had its first murder during a robbery this week.

Random violence was something they heard of on the news and was a 'privilege' of big cities. This murder crashed their last illusions they lived in a special place. They've been leveled by the lowest common denominator.

Sign of the times.

Now, a sign of hypocrisy is that most of the townsfolk - all self-proclaimed Christians - were rooting for a public hanging of the criminals. Afterwards they would probably all go and take communion.
