The way I see these things is as follows.
When one thug shoots another thug, or two thugs shoot each other, the whole of the rest of society, everyone who is not in some way, shape or form,
connected to thuggery, will find it hard to identify with the victims. Right wing, left wing, it does not matter. People who are not prepared to kill
other people over territory, or money, or street cred, will simply not find it possible to identify with those who are, regardless of what their
politics looks like.
When a room full of people who are just sitting down, eating dinner, minding their own business and causing no trouble, are shot up by a maniac with
no undies on though, well, those people at the diner could be any law abiding citizen, just going about their routine. Its easy to identify with the
victims, because their motivations in being where they were and doing what they were doing, are familiar to EVERYONE in society, not just those who
happen to know which corner dealer has the best rates and the best supply.
And to be honest, there SHOULD be more attention paid to the deaths of people who do not contribute in some way to their own downfall. Innocent
victims, no matter who they may be or where they are to be found, will always be more newsworthy than those complicit in the creation of their
