Concerned about lack of response

COURTESY TO THE BELLINGHAM HERALDJuly 10, 2013 

A 23-year-old female is killed by a random shot. We are told the shot comes from an ex-felon's rifle as three men target shoot. We are then told the men are asked for $5,000 bail. Is anyone else infuriated at such apparent injustice?

Why does this person have access to guns?

Why this inconsequential, unjust response from the court?

Why have we not heard more from the police and press?

Have our brains and hearts atrophied to the point of paralysis regarding violence in our community? Scream with me!
