    Will there be protests about this shooting, like the ones for Mike Brown and Vonderritt? I doubt it.

    Well, there should be. It's up to our community to gather together and protest. If people who are angered by this dear little girl being shot down don't gather in the streets to protest, whose fault is that? OURS. It's our fault for being so complacent that we have no energy to gather in the streets and be heard. Shrugs shoulders.

    I cannot physically gather in the streets and protest this plague that's hit our country (and no, I'm not talking about ebola), but I can research the actions/reactions of my elected officials and gather my wits in the voting booth and protest there...legally and peacefully.

    When the shooting happened, the Chief of Police there went to the scene as soon as he heard. Along the way, he tweeted about the little one's condition, corrected earlier information about her age, and appealed to the killer to give themselves up. Upon arrival, he asked for prayers for the family and officers at the scene.

    I think this one has hit everyone really, really hard. Maybe even the shooter too, if they really didn't intend to shoot the child. Maybe they will give themselves up, or someone will do it for them, if they don't.

    My computer's playing up again so I can't link the articles, but they're saying the child was just walking out of the gas station, and was shot. Police are sure she wasn't the intended target and kept everyone in the parking lot for hours until they'd questioned them.

    At first I thought this had to be a robbery gone wrong. But I'm beginning to think now it was a driveby shooting with the real target someone else in the parking lot?

    Police said the little girl had just walked out of the gas station when she was shot.

    On Saturday, Hooper’s mother, Charity Guinn, returned to the scene.

    “She was a sweet little girl and she didn’t deserve this at all,” Guinn said. “I just want anybody who knows anything to speak up because it’s not fair, I did not deserve to lose my daughter.”

    Her name is Angel, she went to the store with her dad to buy bubble gum and got shot! :(

    Wasn't that a sweet little face.

    This is something to protest about! imo
