Why does it alway seem that when a politician is killed it is more of a tragedy than when an average citizen is murdered. The AZ shooting was tragedy but the congress womans life is no more or less important than the 9 year girl or any of the others that were kllied or injured. There are "attempted assasinations" on average citizens everyday. When I vote for someone to take polotical office I am selecting them to represent me not be more important than me. This mind set of many politicians really needs to change. They are so very out of touch with the average person it is scary.
