    Parents of murdered British students criticise Barack Obama (edited)

    Too bad for these kids. They don't look like Obama's son so they don't count.

    If the president took time to address every incident of murdered individuals, he would never make it out of the wonderful communities he 'organized'.

    Like all politicians, he doesn't give a crap unless it helps him politically.

    Hmmm... wait... so this is a case of parents being angry because Obama didn't comment on their child's death even though the kid got the justice he deserved? Unlike Martin? Who's killer was given a slap on the wrists and backed by the police before the investigation was even concluded? Apples and Oranges is one thing but this is ridiculous.

    They probably didn't look like they could be his kids.

    White kids don't make good political fodder.

    Re: Parents of murdered British students criticise Barack Obama (edited)

    So, Obama is criticized for "interjecting himself" into martin's case after answering a question posed by a reporter regarding a wildly televised nation-wide news story, yet the right wing press is now crucifying him because he didn't apologize to a relatively unknown victim's family regarding a case that has not been in the national news, been nearly completely under the radar and has not been posed as an issue/question to the president himself? Make up your mind already. I would personally prefer he not comment on any of these situations to avoid the painfully stupid and accusatory interpretations that ensue.

    Just politics...

    If Obama had time to speak out against the murder of some obscure Ugandan LGBT rights activist, he has the time to address this.
