The suspects in the Alabama mass shooting, one of the worst in US history, were arraigned. Why do you think this story has disappeared from the news?

Did you hear about the Alabama mass shooting at a 16th birthday party less than two weeks ago?

[April 15th's] shooting at a 16th birthday party shocked Dadeville, a sleepy east Alabama town of 3,200. Besides the four people killed, 32 others were injured, four of them critically. The Sweet 16 birthday party, at a dance studio just off the town square, was in full swing when gunfire erupted.

Investigators say 18-year-old Phil Dowdell, 23-year-old Corbin Holston, 19-year-old Marsiah Collins, and 17-year-old KeKe Smith were killed in the gunfire. Another 32 people were rushed to hospitals across the region for injuries ranging from minor to critical.

32 people!

Here were the victims who were murdered. Considering their racial narrative, why has the national media silent on this over the last week? You'd think the gun-control advocates would be all over this!

Maybe the suspects can give us a clue:

Strangely, no national outlets are picturing the perps. Why is that?

Check out the BBC: All the murdered victims were black and the perps were black, but they showed grieving white people on their header photo!

The few updates from after the arrests are few and far in-between.

Look at this CNN article from this week. Six people have been arrested and arraigned but CNN shows no picture of them.

Seems like y'all have some thoughts.

Here are 5 of the 6 suspects, by the way:

Thursday night, the Alabama Law Enforcement Agency announced the arrest of a 15-year-old juvenile from Tuskegee, Alabama - the sixth person arrested in the investigation so far.

Earlier Tuesday, authorities say they arrested 19-year-old Willie George Brown Jr. of Auburn and 20-year-old Johnny Letron Brown of Tuskegee.

The pair join 17-year-old Tyreese "Ty Reik" McCullough, 16-year-old Travis McCullough of Tuskegee and 20-year-old Wilson LaMar Hill Jr. of Auburn in custody. All five men have been charged with four counts of reckless murder. Tallapoosa County District Attorney Mike Segrest said the two teens would be tried as adults, an automatic requirement for anyone 16 or older charged with murder in Alabama.

Remember stories like these the next time the media tries really hard to convince you about something. Ask yourself why they care so much about certain stories and so little about others.
