Why Do They Do It?

'A few days ago, I watched the movie "Veronica Guerin" on DVD.Veronica was an Irish journalist who investigated the drug lords in Dublin during the 90s. She pushed her limits to cover that story. She faced death threats for exposing the lords in the Irish media. In 1996, she was silenced by an assassin. To their disappointment, her death resulted in an outrage and crackdown on the drug trade in Dublin. It took her death to mobilize people and the government to fight those criminals.

In one movie scene, the drug lord calls her and threatens the life of her 6-year-old son. After the phone and while shaking from the horror, she tells her husband not to tell her boss that she cried."
