Re "Where is the outrage?" (Letters, Aug. 26): The outrage with the Trayvon Martin killing was caused by the fact that his killer was not even charged at the time, and that, in the end, he got away with murder. The comparison with the Christopher Lane killing does not apply despite the right-wing media's best efforts at trying to make them the same in reverse, saying, in particular, that the three killers were black when one is white and another is half white.
The outrage in the Lane killing should be that the insane availability of guns to pretty much anyone is causing yet another innocent life to be lost and making the United States look to the rest of the world like a war zone. Everyone is outraged at the loss of Lane's life but, for many people, the outrage unfortunately stops there.
