Gang Warfare

I agree with the intense reaction to the killing of 50-plus people and the destruction of businesses and personal property, a reaction that seems appropriate.

But why wasn't there any similar reaction to the gang warfare that killed more than 1,000 people in Los Angeles over the last year? Is it the loss of property that mobilized our President, vice president and countless politicians? Why did not one of them sympathize with the families of those killed from drive-by cars?

When will we see action against senseless shootings of so many innocent bystanders?
