It took them fifteen years. Its about time women stand up and let it be reconized that we are human beings. They do not follow up close enough on womens murders or disappearance. Last year there were over fifty thousant women missing.

My heart breaks for these families that lost loved ones, but I agree with Margo, women need to band together and have their voices be heard. If we lost that many Senators you better believe they would of found the killer by now.

So many women, and the fight continues to bear arms. Speak up folks we may not like guns but when you are a victim I bet you wish you had.

One question posed is "how rich do you have to be to be assassinated rather than murdered?" the question should be "what criteria is used to determine you are human enough to be considered worthy of having your murder investigated?"
