Michelle Obama will attend the funeral of slain student Hadya Pendleton. Obama is a Chicago native and Chicago’s homocide rate reached aan all time high last year, and so far this year 42 people have been killed. Some concerned citizens had created a petition asking the president to attend, but what would his presence accomplish? Some have asked why does the media carry extensive coverage of the Sandy Hook tragedy and vritually ignore the violence in urban areas? So is the White House bowing to pressure? What do you think?
