    Chicago news manipulation of shooting

    I read about this shooting on the Huffingtonpost.

    Jimmell Cannon Shot Eight Times By Police While Allegedly Holding A BB Gun

    The article has a more liberal slant.

    Basically a 13 year old was shot in the park because he is accused of having a bb gun, not putting it down when commanded to by police and then shot when he pointed it at them.

    Sounds like a justified shooting in this case to me.

    The article and comments following it have a lot of its only because he's black, he was supposed to be a good kid etc, the media is taking the politically correct bs approach and not taking any real scrutiny of this kid. Not only that, they go so far as to manipulate his media image by cropping his facebook profile picture.

    take a look here at the photo shown on the news and once again his facebook photo uncropped.

    Given the choice between the police and the media… | RedState


    Looks like gang signs to me and according to an article its vice lords gang signs that he's flashing.

    The media needs to report on what these "victims" really are, criminals.

    It happens everywhere. I taught in the Omaha Public Schools, very poor inner city district surrounded by affluent districts. And you would constantly hear on the news of our "troubled" students who committed a crime or were "victims" and how they were all really good kids, just turning their lives around. Sometimes you would have actually taught the kid or know of them from your school and the media portrayal is just flat out lies. Most of these victims are scum, plain and simple, and when they die or get injured due to their criminal lifestlyes, they have brought it on themselves.

    you can always expect the media to slant any story like this, it is part of the plan to destroy our country by undermining the authorities.

    I'm with this. While I'm thinking this whole situation is a cluster, the Chicago PD isn't an organization I'm particularly fond of.

    Yeah I figured that the Facebook link would he taken down quickly. The third link should still have both the cropped and original picture.

    I'm also not trying to back up the Chicago PD, my main concern is that young criminals get a politically correct presentation by the news. I have no interest in setting foot in the state of Illinois until they get on board with ccw.

    Nothing that comes out of Illinois surprises me. When you let politicians go unchecked for decades, you get Illinois.

    Chicago crime is a direct result of the policies of the city of chicago, namely dictator daley and his cohorts. Chicago is #1 on my list of: Do not spend tourist dollars here.

    ALL criminals get a politically correct presentation by the news. They're afraid to put "13 year old gang banger shot after threatening police." as headlines, when, in reality, that's exactly what it should say. He pointed a gun at police, he got shot. I can't say that surprises me.
