Ronald Jensen asks where is the outrage over the murder of a white man in Oklahoma ("Where is outrage?" Forum, Aug. 25). What are we supposed to be outraged about? Yes, like the killing of Trayvon Martin, this was a senseless killing. But the people responsible have not been allowed to walk around free.

If, at their trial, they blame the victim for their crime and get off, there will be plenty of outrage. However, that will not happen. These young men will go to prison for a very long time, as they should. As George Zimmerman should have in the Martin case. So, what are we supposed to be outraged about?
