WHERE IS THE OUTRAGE?

WHERE IS THE OUTRAGE?
In America's urban centers, 3,081 people were murdered in the first half of 2017, according to the Major Cities Chiefs Association Violent Crimes Survey. That's up from 2,994 people for the same period in 2016. Some were killed with guns, others knives, some beaten to death. But dead is still dead. Where is the outrage? Is there little concern because the MAJORITY of these murders in these cities were Black people? THOUSANDS of people are murdered every year, especially in our more populated cities and most are Black. Some are just minding their own business, some are children playing in a park, some are housewives, father, mothers, students... So why don't their lives matter? Why is it when a school gets shot up people scream--GUN CONTROL? Is it because the large numbers of murders that happen are in places where there is SERIOUS GUN CONTROL already in place? AND, these people would actually have to look at the REAL CAUSES of these murders?
 
*The murder rate in Detroit is 20.2 per 100,000. In the first half of 2017, 136 people were murdered in that city.
