    I rather thought this one would be a sitting duck.
    Maybe I'll add some clues in a couple of days and I have another riddle on the drawing table.

    Alright, this is coming far out of left field. I can fit part of it, but not all.

    Neighborhood Watch?

    Actually, in a just now 'aha' lucid moment. I finally got it all to fit.

    Well done Jon!

    I also got neighborhood watch for the first line, but didn’t really get any further with it.

    I can put it all together if I got it right.

    Born of Genovese sacrifice,
    I am to reduce that price -

    This part had me thinking the Genovese Crime family. Nice misdirection. I couldn't make this part work. I kept thinking hood watch. Then I thought sacrifice while the neighborhood watched. Kitty Genovese was attacked and later killed with 38 people watching. The neighborhood watched. This was my aha moment

    Also meant to eliminate a likely false effect-Bystander Effect, I came across this effect when researching a riddle on this forum not yet solved.

    Maybe George should have been circumspect-George Zimmerman coordinator of a neighborhood watch program, he shot Trayvon Martin. His trial was all over the news. It was said he acted rashly.

    Nice riddle.
