Three teenagers have been charged with attempted murder in the shooting of a 4-year-old girl as she rode her scooter near her grandmother's home early this week, authorities said.
Laquan Waters, 18, Tyrese Pearson, 17, and Roosevelt Stevens, 15, have been charged with attempted murder in the shooting about 4:55 p.m. Monday of Khalise Weatherspoon, said Cook Count state's attorney's spokeswoman Tandra Simonton. Khalise was the fourth child age 7 or younger to be shot and wounded in Chicago in July.

One thing overlooked in O’Reilly’s talking points memo is the names given to these kids. Perhaps if they were given some normal names, they’d be more inclined to act normal???
So sad. So senseless.
“Detectives were able to track down the suspects despite lack of cooperation from Khalise’s family in identifying the shooters, an official said today.”
I guess they did not want to give O’Reilly and the other Crackas something bad about the africanmerican community.
OK, where are the angry mobs? Where’s the media? A 4-year-old? What were those freaks doing?
Were they wearing “I am Trayvon” t-shirts?
Laquan,Tyrese and Roosevelt wink and rub race card.
Such fanciful names. But its black-on-black crime so who cares?
Jesse? Al? Quannel X? NAACP? BO? Thousands of haters sending death threat messages to Laquan, Tyrese, and Rooservelt?
Oh, wait, that was/is George Zimmerman's fate.
Black-on-black crime just doesn't register even when 3 black teenage boys shoot a little black girl.
You'd think this was Chicago or something!
Oh, wait, this is, uh,.....
Or afraid for their daughter, themselves and their other children.
Good point. Good post.
Not according to one specific Ad Council radio spot that I have heard. And who is to argue with the Ad Council since it is filled with open-minded, tolerant and DIEverse liberal ideas.
You know, if they rounded up and jailed everyone in the USA name Laquan, Tyrese , and Roosevelt, violent crime would drop 15%.
Where’s Jesse and Al? Oh yeah, no potential for monetary awards here...
My first act as POTUS would be to sign an Executive Order placing all individuals with Ebonic names under house arrest.
It is possible the family had other plans for rehabbing the bratty little sh*ts.
Khalise was the fourth child age 7 or younger to be shot and wounded in Chicago in July.
Hmmm. No wonder the highest authorities in Chicago are so adamantly opposed to the right of the people to keep and bear arms. If the commoners could fight back against the city-protected criminals, there's no telling what might happen.
In full seriousness: the people of Chicago remind me of the Palestinians: no one cares one way or a dozen others about the children.
.........I’m sure you and most freepers agree that if it is a 4 year old little innocent girl that was shot and killed, I don’t give a damn what her color was and I, for one, care! These bastards should be taken out in the street at the exact spot the little girl was and SHOT in the gut just like she was! Then they should be allowed to just lay there and die! The more people watching the better. Superbowl sized crowds preferred!
And, if the perps were white or brown or red or whatever, I would be saying EXACTLY the same thing! These guys have no right to breathe air on this earth one second longer!
Laquan, Tyrese, and Roosevelt... potential Obama “sons” or members of Mensa? Which is the more likely? Hmmmmm.....
Rabid animals like these three need to be put down and not coddled. I can hear the liberals gnashing their teeth ans shouting “racism’ even now.
Just ask Shirley Q. Liquor.
It seems from the report that the child may have actually been the target of these gentlemen.
Her response was. she's just reporting what she is hearing in the hood. Her explanation for the growth of the rumor is that only 30% of murders in Chicago are solved. As though law enforcement complicity is the only reasonable explanation for a large number of unsolved crimes.
Of course the logical explanation is that no one in the hood will turn anyone in or cooperative with law enforcement. Even if it's your 4 year old relative who is shot.
“Black-on-black crime just doesn’t register...”
Sort of like the “N-word”. OK for them to say, but not OK if you say it. OK for them to kill each other, just don’t let whitey do it.
Yeah , but we don’t want the truth getting of the way of the facts.
It is all cultural differences. When blacks do it, to the liberal mind it must be ascribed to normal cultural activity and must not be repressed because that would be placing white cultural values over black cultural values which must absolutely must not be done. If some culturally deficient ghetto neighborhood suffers a decline of its normal cultural values then perhaps the government should send establish a training program in order to boost those fading cultural values before they disappear and the residents become subsumed into the repressive white majority culture. Children must be trained how to ack in accordance with their imputed normal cultural values.
In a Communist state the criminals are considered to be partners of the Communist system in that they keep the bourgeoisie and the more industrious under control and always fearful.
When I was younger, I went to school with some Negro children, as they were then called Negroes. And the Negro children had names such as Karen, John, Michael. There was once a time when black people gave their children names which were not so distinctive. Who knows why they do this nowadays.
I wrote about this before but one morning, I was listening to the radio and a white male called in to discuss his AA coworker who had been robbed at gunpoint by another AA. The coworker knew the name and address of the criminal but refused to even report it as he ‘didn’t want another brother to go to jail’. Lord knows how much more crime is being committed against the AA community and not reported. Are they reaping what they sow?
When will this end and how? Never and not well, I am guessing. And they need to stop with the stupid, made up names. When I make a call to a customer service number and get a Laqueesha or a Lavontray on the phone, I say, “Sorry, wrong number” and hang up and try again.
So, how long have these 3 been on the Chicago Police force?
I find that hard to believe.
Wouldn't that be considered a "Hate Crime?"
I hope these thugs go to prison, get raped and beaten half to death by bubba, and wind up eating their food through a plastic tube.
They think the names will sound good and cool when their kids are stars on the B-Ball or football team, which they will never be. It is their fantasy.
The one on the left looks like a character on the Simpsons.
And if they succeed in the world of pro sports, ESPN personnel will refer to them by first names.
That’s what he looks like I was thinking he had water on the brain but It said realized he had no brain..
It's not only ridiculous, it's insidious, especially when you have an ignorant population willing and eager to believe it. ....and believe me they must be ignorant, they voted for this female POS!
Me, too. I observed on a thread about Trayvon Martin's parents that they reminded me of the parents of suicide bombers.
One thing for damn sure, Travon has been worth a hellof a lot more to them dead that he ever would have been had he lived.
I heard her, what an attitude! Here’s the new grievance industries talking points.......the suspects because they are black, have been arrested and charged, unlike George Zimmerman, who was set free.
I wonder if Obama is going to come out and say “If I had sons, they’d look like....”
Oh, wait...Never mind... that wouldn’t help him, would it...
His head looks like Mr. Peanut, but without the top hat, can, and monocle...
The words on that shirt apply to every moral, law abiding citizen.
These are good boys. Very polite. They wouldn’t hurt anybody. They’re working on turning their lives around.
Ah, more of those mischievous, happy-go-lucky “teenagers”, like on “Happy Days” or “American Graffiti”, right?
