The author is asking us to consider the scale of our reaction to this event, compared to how we react to other events. For instance, he asks whether the reaction would have been the same had it happened on Kennilworth. The reaction to this in the comments, as if it was justifying what happened, shows that many are not able to ask themselves why they feel so upset in this case, but not in other (semi-) hypothetical ones, including one that is identical but happened elsewhere in the city.

I appreciate that this piece asks us to consider what lies beneath our immediate emotions, to identify the principles that are important to us moving forward.
