    Sad. Dozens and dozens of posts and comments for a young, dreadlocked Trader Joes worker (or as some people dismiss as white hipster) gunned down for probably talking tough and not one comment for a surely struggling old lady who died just as violently. Someone’s mama and someone nana, I expect.

    I wish her family the best

  2. Why can’t you just offer your condolences without tarnishing things with your insipid “observations”? Why compare one life to another?

  3. As tragic as this accident was, it’s obvious as to why the other story received more comments: this was merely an accident which is not part of a larger problem (beyond the obvious fact that people need to watch where they’re going, and I suppose I could be talking about both the pedestrian and the driver here), whereas the shooting is indicative of a widespread problem of violence in the community, the city, and cities like this throughout the world to which there is no easy answer.

    Nicely done on drawing in a completely unrelated story in order to do some speculative trash-talking about a dead man to make your “point”, however.

    Thank you for your sympathy. We love her very much.
