Black Carjacking Hero of Chicago

Media Lining Up to Defend Black Teen Shot in Carjacking, Attempted Murder

What’s it like to feel powerless?

A lieutenant in the Chicago Fire Department may find out.  The fireman committed the grave sin of defending himself and his property from an aggressor.  Now he is the target of a social media campaign to ex post facto punish him for having the audacity to protect what is rightfully his.

Last summer, the unidentified firefighter left his Jeep idling on the West Side of the city (admittedly, not a bright thing to do anywhere in Chicago) when it was carjacked by 17-year-old Charles Macklin.

Black Boy Shot – No Political Gain

by: the Common Constitutionalist

So a black child was fatally shot. His grieving mother tearfully described her son: My baby, he was a good kid. He’s a mama’s boy. He stayed up under me. He called me every day. I’m at work, ‘Mama, I love you. Mama, can I have this. Mama, can I have that’. My boy, he was just an angel. All he did was joke and laugh and play.”

The victim’s father says, “I love my city, but the city took something from me that I love even more. And that was my son. That was my little guy right there.”

I know you’re thinking – little guy?! The kid was a giant. Michael Brown was like 6’4″ and 300 pounds. We know the media and the race pimps promote him as a “young child”, to further garner sympathy, but for the father to say “little guy” is a bit much.

But I can understand your confusion. See, you think I’m writing about the Ferguson shooting, where white cop kills black boy. No – that’s not it.

You see, while the country was still riveted on the shooting of the “Gentle Giant”, there was another shooting – this one of an actual little black child in… where else… Chicago. read more

Come Visit Chicago…You May Live Long Enough to Leave

Just this past weekend it was reported that an 11-year-old girl was shot and killed in Chicago by a stray bullet.

Shamiya Adams was at a sleepover Friday night. The girls were making s’mores when gunshots rang out nearby. Evidently one of the bullets entered the house, struck and killed her.

In fact, a total of 22 people were shot just that Friday night in Chicago. And just a few weeks after 60 were shot over the Fourth of July weekend. That’s 26 more than were shot over the same holiday weekend in 2013.

Virtually all the shootings have been black on black, or Latino or let’s just say, minority on minority.

Yet, when reporting on the child shooting incident, ThinkProgress felt compelled to report that “A recent study found that African Americans were 10 times more likely to be shot by police than white people.”

Huh? None of the reported shootings were by police, yet the leftist radicals at ThinkProgress can’t help themselves. They have to somehow weave the “evil cops” into their narrative.

Of course ThinkProgress will never conclude that Chicago’s “gun violence” problem has anything to do with the city’s ridiculous anti-gun laws. read more
