Where is outrage over this killing?

Just caught the breaking news this Monday morning regarding the apprehension of the second young person charged in the violent murder of the elderly World War II veteran in Spokane a few days ago during a violent robbery. Where and why is there no vitriolic outrage over this incident (with obvious reverse dynamics) vs, the mass outrage over the recent verdict in a Florida court case? Seems to many of us to be a very defined, very different social reaction to these two tragic incidents. And for what “good” reason is that? Seems as though “balance” no longer exists?
