Oiy vey. Kids were the target this time. The dead were 14 and 18 years old. Victims were as young as 12 this time.

This seems like a flashback to Orlando. I hope that terrorism was not the cause here.


#7

Its not-it was a gang related drive by shooting

Strange that a senseless drive by killing is somehow “less frightening” than if it were Islamic terror based. Yet the end result is the same in both cases. Except of course that the press is largely ignoring this attack since it wasn’t Islamic terror. :shrug:

It is what it is.


#10

daily reporting of deaths will desensitize the public after some point, seems like that is whats going on, because just a few years back, there is no way a random drive by shooting would have made the national news.
