Well why is no one talking about this??

There was another school shooting today. In Taft, California.
Kind of ironic that no one is talking about it.
Why not?? Cause these kids who got shot aren't as important or something?? Or does it just not fit the agenda of those who are trying to make other points right now??
What gives??

    I heard plenty about it.  Was on my local news and I'm all the way across the country.  But at the risk of sounding really awful and callous, it's just not the same emotionally.  No one died and only one person was injured.  I realize it's still a shooting and it happened to occur in a school, but it's just not the same thing as a mass shooting.  Single murders and attempted murders happen every day and we don't hear about every single one.

    There's shootings everyday throughout the whole world that not everybody knows about. What is it exactly you'd like us to do here?

    Yes I did! My phone decided to change states on me. At least it didn't curse this time ;)

    It might not be all over because this happens very, very often.  It usually doesn't make more than the local news.

    However, because of Newtown, these events are becoming more talked about nationally.

    20 1st graders dead versus 1 HS student injured.

    Not everything is front page news.
