Joe Moretti from Jamaica says:
Congressman Meeks was very vocal about the Garner trial (which I do have to say was a travesty), but where is Meek's outrage not only about the number of black victims of gun shootings in Jamaica by people of color, but the poor quality of life issues in this community that are just not being addressed and add to this situation. So where is Meeks on all of this? Hell, where are the other elected officials, all persons of color. Or does the death of a black person by another black person not on these officials priority list and is not just as compelling or make good news worthy stories or photo op.

I mean this is how many killings since the horrific shooting of young Daja Robinson in the summer of 2013.
