What is that supposed to mean? Just a ghetto crime?
Another gang crime which gets no media, police, social media in uproar response.
I'm not exactly sure what you're probing at, but here in Chicago (where crime is running a little crazy) we get LOADS of media attention.. So maybe gang crimes aren't getting attention in your area, but they certainly are in mine.

Michael, Michael, Michael, don't be such a D.A. Spend 10 minutes in the Ghetto you'll figure out what he meant. Oh and by the way be sure to let your next of kin know whether it will be an open or closed casket funeral
I spent 15 years living in the shadow of Tiger's Stadium. The vast majority of people living in Detroit are good people.
Violence happens everywhere.
More people means more violence.
Just a ghetto crime? No such thing. All violent crime harms society at large. That is the problem I have with what you said, but I suspect we are on the same side.
At least the context of nothing ever gets lost on the Internet. =)
I mentioned the "another ghetto crime" element to trying and highlight how ridiculous and hypocritical it is that 1 guy goes into a mall , shoots into the ceiling and that is all you see on the news..
Meanwhile in North Philly tonight multiple people will be killed, robbed , raped, violated destroyed and no one will care and in Detroit 9 people get shot but their is no righteous outrage from the normal cast of characters.
You misunderstand the op. He said "its easy to dismiss it" implicating we shouldn't immediately dismiss it as such. Also he asks how it will be treated by the media if it is.
