Teen misses rival & shoots innocent bus rider dead as girls laugh
By C.J. Sullivan, Larry Celona and Gabrielle Fonrouge
A young thug chased his rival onto a Brooklyn bus Thursday night and fatally gunned down an innocent man who was riding home to see his kids in between his two jobs, cops said. Kahton Anderson, 14, boarded the B15 bus in Clinton Hill at around 6:20 p.m. after two girls shouted, Hes on the bus, referring to the teens intended target, cops and witnesses said.

And let's start the countdown when the gun gets more focus and blame than these animals...3...2...1
And NY has the strictest gun control laws in the nation. How’s that working for ya’ll?
good choice of words. I’m still old-school enough that when I see “girls” I think of what used to pass for young females of the species, but anymore there’s little difference, thanks to the public schools, media, and stolen childhoood. We just have two sexes of thug.
Apparently "stop snitchin'" campaign only applies to speaking to police. You can narc to the thugs in the neighborhood as a matter of civic pride.
If it was my father I assure you at least three people would have had their LAST laugh!
I'm expecting to see these 'girls' sometime in the future in mug shots, or on the Maury show for the 5th time trying to find the "baby daddy."
Where the hell is Paul Kersey....
Well thank God that the NYPD wasn’t there when this happened, otherwise there would be at least 10 innocent bystanders shot.
It’s Warren Wilhelm time.
Me too, forget it I would go out of my mind jail be damned.
In terms of complete reporting, I would also like to be informed of the victim’s voting record. Just curious.
They might end up on morgue slabs when the guy they were trying to get killed catches up with them.
It’s Bernie Goetz time.
But, but....I thought all guns were outlawed in the Coumo crap hole utopia known as NY and everyone was safe now???
Now, now. How do we know that Kahton isn’t a recent immigrant from Sweden in the country to study interplanetary astrophysics? Maybe the “girls”were his research assistants.
That’s true, too. I really won’t be concerned about their loss.
we need to pass a law making it illegal for a 14 year old to own a gun.
The girls wont be laughing when they find out they are just as legally responsible as the guy who pulled the trigger. Alerting the shooter to the presence of his target resulted in the death of an innocent man. These girls should be charged with murder.

You are apparently unaware that "thug" has recently been declared a racist word because it is often used to reference black male aggressive and violent criminals.
the gun gets more focus and blame than these animals.
We ought to at least be willing to concede that accidental killing of bystanders is pretty unlikely with any other weapon, except probably arson and explosives.
Recently saw this movie for the first time. Was quite surprised that it wasn’t a “vigilante” movie at all.
Bronson just put himself into dangerous situations and then defended himself when attacked. I don’t think all of the shootings would qualify legally as self-defense, but he certainly didn’t go out and track down and shoot people he thought were criminals, which is what vigilantes do.
Told them to stop laughing?
I would get up and punch out each of the laughing punks.
People talk about “the Wild West” as if it was a bad thing. Immediate justice is the only way to curb all this garbage. Trash, to be specific.
Yes, but still, it’s the disgusting evil self-centered character of these thugs that should be the main focus. A moral good person with a gun would not even have that piece out in the open.
Democrat, same as it will be for the next 4 elections.
There is a little Paul Kersey in all of us.
The only question is, what will it take to push us to the edge where Kersey decided to take the plunge?
“we need to pass a law making it illegal for a 14 year old to own a gun”
Eric Holder opposes such laws because they disproportionately affect black teens.
I agree, obviously.
But, as with anything else, there is a cost to having widely available guns. That is that they are more readily available to those who are happy to misuse them.
This is an utterly conservative premise. Everything, no matter how good it is, has a price. Conservatives don’t indulge in the magical thinking that one can have good things without associated negative externalities. We weigh the good against the bad and determine whether a policy is on net appropriate.
The notion that it is possible to have a policy that is good for everybody in every way is a specialty of liberals. My boss, who is very liberal, thinks all policies should be a plus for all. Utterly resistant to the truism that every policy impacts somebody negatively.
If you put in pollution controls, costs of production go up, everybody pays more, and quite likely some people lose their jobs.
If you enforce laws against crime more effectively, individual criminals are more likely to wind up in jail. That’s negative for them, no matter how positive it is for society as a whole.
He then allegedly fired two shots. But instead of striking his rival, he shot Angel Rojas, 41, in the back of the head, according to law-enforcement sources.
The unidentified suspect, hiding out at the Community Laundry Center on Lafayette Avenue, was busted shortly after, cops said.
Police said they recovered the firearm from the teenager.
Okay, reading this, who is Kahton (cotton?) Anderson? The shooter? The target? Just a bystander?
Journo school was lost on this reporter.

Nah, they’ll be hired and promoted as poster children for the Obama administration.
This article says Cotton is the suspect and they arrested him, and again no mention of his race because we don’t want to focus on the holocaust of the black family unit by the liberal agenda, so no doubt by tomorrow Cotton will all be forgotten about and libs will scream for even more gun control which will solve absolutely nothing because they insist on ignoring the holocaust of the black family unit.
Probably in an ObamaCare Commercial “I loggeded on and gots me some free healthcare I deserbe. Wit my EBT, EITC, WICs, Section 8, TANF and such, it don’t cost me sh!t”
Becoming a murderer is too often celebrated. For many it's an initiation or a rite of passage with little or no consequence.
The fear of a gruesome public exit from society and from life itself might serve them and society better than our current leniency and tolerance.
A moral good person with a gun would not even have that piece out in the open.
...the more sensible thing would be to openly carry, then nobody will mess with you in the first place...but, society has spoken...
What I meant was he wouldn’t be holding it, brandishing it. Ready to use.
I totally agree otherwise. Don’t know why concealed is better than open.
I agree, the girls should be charged with something.
This story cannot be true. I don’t believe it.
First of all, NY has strict gun control laws. Only few people have guns. Its against the law for a 14 year old to own a gun so it cannot be true since we know that all criminals have strict ethic and abide by all gun control laws.
Secondly, he is a misguided “teen”. He didn’t shoot anyone. The racist gun lobby put that magic gun in his hand and timed it to go off as soon as he got on the bus.
For all this, he deserves a lifetime welfare check for him and his 14 siblings. Istead of having to steal, white people should give their belongings to him. Its white people’s fault anyway for working and having more than him.
Actually all we really need is a return to “speedy trials”. Wasting years to even get to trial is asinine. And then, speedy punishment. Death penalty loses its sting when you have decades before the axe falls. Nevermind all the chances for appeal and escape in that time.
Well thank God that the NYPD wasnt there when this happened, otherwise there would be at least 10 innocent bystanders shot.
And a dog...
He was 14, not old enough to vote. So that means he voted straight democrat ticket 4 times.
You are all correct. And not wrong about how accidents can happen with guns. Not to mention anything else - something libs refuse to acknowledge.
Cities are becoming so rife with ferals it’s best to avoid them whenever possible.
Lincoln was right.
Hedonism. Don’t you just love the brave new world the left is creating?
No we do not
In Kersey’s case, it took the rape of his daughter and the death of his wife.
White people of NY register your guns or we will arrest you sez govenor beedie eye all others are excused because of racial profiling, social justice and or affirmative action and inequality......thank you goodnight!
<<Voting record? He was 14, not old enough to vote. So that means he voted straight democrat ticket 4 times.>>
I think your answer might be right anyway, BUT I meant the VICTIM (not the perp). I decided after the last election that I won’t feel bad for ‘rats under any circumstances, even these.
