What Black Lives Matter should be protesting

I don't have words for this.  Some stories are too awful.

So, Black Lives Matter, where are you?  Find the people who did this and make sure nothing like it happens again.

In case the story is taken down at some point:
KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- A Missouri father is speaking out after bullets ripped through his family's Kansas City home, killing his 9-year-old son and the boy's 8-year-old cousin.

[Jayson] Ugwuh and his cousin, Montell Ross, were killed early Saturday morning when a gunman sprayed bullets into the family home where they were sleeping. Altogether, there were six children sleeping inside the home at the time.

Three days after their murders, WDAF's Shannon O'Brien spoke to little Jayden's dad. He said Jayden awoke at about 1:30 a.m., to a barrage of bullets and ran out of his bedroom. When he noticed his cousin, Montell wasn't behind him, he turned around, ran back to get him and that's when both boys were shot.

"Didn't even cry, just got hit and ran and laid up under his big brother, you know. Like he knew exactly where to go for comfort, you know what I'm saying," said Ugwuh.
This makes me angry and sick and I can't fix it. Only folks like Black Lives Matter could if they weren't too busy burning and looting in Milwaukee.
