  1. So sad another young life lost, where is the outrage though? It seems society is very selective on what they become outraged or offended about.

    If this would have been a police killing outrage would be everywhere and demands for an arrest and prosecution would be demanded.

    So why is there no outrage and why is the community not demanding answers. Those responsible need to be held accountable no matter who the shooter is.
