We posted yesterday on how newly minted celebrity #BlackLivesMatter protester DeRay Mckesson noticed that many of those protesting in McKinney, Texas over police use of force at a pool party were familiar faces:

We have just one question for DeRay and everyone else he recognizes in McKinney: Why’d you leave Baltimore?

The Baltimore Sun’s Justin George reports that four children were shot in Baltimore over the weekend, one fatally:

And from earlier this weekend:


Three other children were victims of violence over the weekend.

An 8-year-old boy and a 10-year-old boy were in the the Darley Park neighborhood on Saturday night when they were hit in the back with bullets from at least one unknown shooter.

A 13-year-old boy walked into a Baltimore hospital on Sunday afternoon with a gunshot wound to his side. Police believe he was shot in the 200 block of Cherry Hill Road in southern Baltimore.

In summary, a 16-year-old girl was killed and torched to hide evidence and three other children were shot, but the collective focus of the media is on how the police reacted to a pool party gone wrong in a Texas suburb. Are we the only ones who see a disconnect here?
