If Pakistan were to line 'em up and shoot, would the murders of Baloch receive more attention?

Within hours, four additional dump and kills and one death by beating were tweeted. The beating victim was female, Pazo Bibi--'collateral' damage in her brother's war, following a raid on the family home by the Pakistani military. On Saturday, the tortured and bullet-riddled body of journalist Javed Rind was discovered on a roadside.
