    There have been many posts recently about the murders in Conn.
    Yes, Over 20 lives were snuffed out in a matter of minutes.

    But over 14,000 Americans are murdered each and every year. Why isn't there a fuss made over them
    (that is an average of 38 /day)

    Mind you, I am not trying to denigrate the memory of those in Conn, but why does a larger number make a difference?

    President Obama had a special news conference, Networks spent countless numbers of hour reporting.

    Would this have happen for 1, 2, or a group of 3 who were murdered?

    Just wondering?

    The president addressed this about at the 10 minute mark of his speech.
