Re "Where is the outrage?" (Letters, Aug. 26): It is everywhere. People from all corners are outraged over the terrible shooting of a young ballplayer from Australia by three teens who were "bored."
But you want to know the difference between this and the Trayvon Martin case? In this case, the alleged killers (and their driver) were arrested almost immediately, and there is no part of the media or culture that is holding them up as heroes. George Zimmerman was free and walking around for weeks, and the (mostly right-wing) media was exalting him and his highly questionable behavior. The three young men in this case are sitting in jail, awaiting their trial. There is a world of difference between these two cases.
