Well in this case two people being shot made news around the world.

If it happened in the US it wouldn’t even be significant enough to make the local news.

That’s the difference.

100%. Am American and literally thought how this wouldn’t be news in my city. God I hate it here.

Two people being shot in the US makes the news on Reddit any time it happens.

So please don’t be a hypocrite and pretend like it doesn’t.

There was just a shooting at the Mall of America. 1 dead, 1 grazed. You know how I know? Because it’s all over Reddit, with much gnashing of teeth and bemoaning of America and how bad we are, etc.

But when it happens in Paris, out come the excuses.
