Was he holding a Confederate Flag?
Pray America is waking
Just like the blacks murdered via abortion don't count.
ISIS doesn’t even have to bother.
No Jesse, no Al, no Obama, no demonstrations. Apparently black lives really don’t matter.
I’m SO glad banning the confederate battle flag or naval jack has stopped black on black crime. Wait, nevermind...
black on black killings?
Quite obviously no one really gives a damn.
Only one dead? This has the potential to be a pretty peaceful weekend for Chicago.
Would like to know the TOTAL body count and wounded for the Shitcago Independence Day holiday weekend July 3 thru July 5.
Funeral directors are gonna be busy. Faux clergy too.
Wow...lotsa people are upset with the new online streaming tax.....
I wish the thugs would take time for target practice, no need to waste perfectly good bullets!
When my kids were 7 they weren’t standing out on the street at midnight.
No big deal because these were all done in love not hate and the Confederate flag was nowhere around.
Did they release the Carolina Kid for a night pass?
Poor little boy - and someone knows who killed him but they won’t snitch
From the article:
The boy was with his father after spending the day at his grandmother's house at a July 4th celebration.
July 4th night is not that unusual...
I was sort of surprised baby daddy was mentioned...
My god... will Jessie or Al talk about it??? Was the shooter white? I bet not...
The 7 year old was going to a midnight basketball game....
Now, now.. we mustn’t get on our high horses here.. We must be sensitive to the ways others celebrate a holiday...
Oh, wait... This happens EVERY weekend in ChiCongo.
