Saying something hateful is nothing like killing someone in cold blood. You already know that, but if you say it, then you'll have to admit to yourself how horrible these murderers actually are.
Nowhere in the Bible does it say that all sins are equal. You already know that, but if you say it, then you'll have to admit to yourself how horrible their crime actually was.
You're making up excuses because you feel ashamed of the way some (but not all) of the members of your community are acting. You should feel ashamed.
Stop wasting time on excuses and start taking action in your community to put a stop to the actions of a small minority of thugs and wanna-be gangstas that are getting all the headlines. Put more pressure on some (but not all) of the parents of these wanna-be's in your community to stress the advantages of education and real parenting rather than just letting them just do whatever.
More effort on the front end always results in less excuses coming out on the back end. Of course, you could just continue to do nothing until the next murder occurs. Then you could just post another excuse and misquote a little bit more of the Bible to fool yourself into thinking you shouldn't feel ashamed about having done nothing in the first place.
