    Please explain why the death[penalty is wrong and why Freddie Gray matters but these victims aren't emblematic of the utter deterioration of civilization.

    His 2-year-old daughter was sitting in her car seat when he turned the gun on her and opened fire, police said. He had gone to the girl’s Fort Washington home early Tuesday morning and waited for her mother to leave the house to confront her about the $600 in monthly child support he recently had been ordered to pay, according to police and court documents.

    The disagreement over those payments turned violent, police said, leaving NeShante Alesha Davis, 26, and her daughter, Chloe Nichole Davis-Green, dead.

    Daron Maurice Boswell-Johnson, 25, was charged with two counts of first- and second-degree murder in relation to each death after he admitted to killing his daughter and Davis, Prince George’s County law enforcement officials announced Wednesday.

    Western civilization is less violent than it has been at any point in the history of mankind.

    Where's the local and national outrage? Where's the call to prevent domestic violence ? Where's the political courage to criticize life choices that led to infantacide

    True, and as with officer-involved deaths, there's a vocal majority in this case saying the victims deserved it. They were no angels.

    Is there a large contingent of the American public that is trying to defend this dude's actions?

    OK, let's have a national conversation about this incident:
    Advocate: Killing women and children to get out of child support is wrong! This man should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law!
    Everyone else in the country: WE AGREE!

    Annnnnnnnd, scene.

    Idiot OP doesn't care that the Black Lives Matter movement is about state-sponsored violence against black people.
