    It's an obvious sign of the times when someone questions the newsworthiness of the cold-blooded murder of two young people in a park...

    That's not what's being questioned.

    It's obviously a tragedy if anybody minding his/her own business in a park is shot to death, but this ordinarily doesn't lead to a national headline.

    Yeah.. couples being murdered doesn't make it to the headlines.

    Normally don`t use MSNBC, but I saw it come up.

    A shame, and so young. I hope their sexuality wasn`t the cause, but as this point, unknown.

    Why kids though? What have they done?
    Tis unfortunate no matter the reason. Senseless killings are senseless, I hope they catch the scum who did this.

    So do I. And I'd like to emphasize the fact, because this is already being distorted, that one person died while the other survived. I hope she will be able to provide the cops with information.

    I dont really care why the news reported this crime or if their sexuality was a factor in the shooting. Either way it is terrible crime and I hope that whoever did it is caught soon.

    So do I. It's a horrific crime, so stupid and wasteful. Age, gender, race, nationality, orientation--none of these matter. Two innocent people were shot in a park. That's the story here.

    That's a shame. There are, regrettably, people running around loose who think murder is a fine evening's entertainment.

    Any time anyone is murdered its a shame...anyone....no one deserves that.

    I have to disagree however, that all murders are national news...that is untrue, most murders are relegated to the 2nd or third page and get one paragraph. If all murders were national news thats mostly what we would all be reading.
    There has to be something about the murder that makes it stand out or piques the media' attention

    Isn't all news "Breaking News" when it first comes out?
