Double standard seen with murder cases

Success - Article sent! close

Several days ago an unarmed Army combat veteran, Terry Geike, was murdered by a gang of three thugs. Where is the outcry, the protest marches such as there were following the Trayvon Martin case in Florida? Where are the media commentaries that went on for weeks? Where are the "wringing hands" politicians? Where is one of President Obama's stupid comments? There won't be any: political correctness. Terry was white! The thugs weren't.
