Just the other day, we were talking about such a scenario over at Civil War Crossroads. The shooter has been identified as
Pat Hines … the Black Undertow:
“But a little boy has been gunned down by Chicago street gangs — the shooter allegedly said, “I just hit a shorty, I just hit a shorty,” and there has been precious little national outrage over it. …
But practically none over Antonio Smith, who just before he was killed argued with his mom because she wouldn’t give him a cupcake. ….
“I don’t understand why people aren’t as outraged when a young child like this is executed on a street,” Alvarez said.
I asked: I didn’t see Al or Jesse on the South Side, did you?
“I agree with you,” she said. “I think that’s wrong because it’s young children being killed in minority communities and these activists need to be just as vocal and just as outraged … as they are when there’s a police shooting …”
For some reason, I doubt that Brooks Simpson or Spelunker will be weighing in on the death of the latest “shorty” in Chicago, Antonio Smith. They didn’t have anything to say either when 13-month-old “shorty” Antonio Santiago was shot to death in his stroller by the Black Undertow in Brunswick, GA over a year ago now.
Note: Wasn’t Garry McCarthy the guy who blamed Sarah Palin and the Pilgrims for gun violence in Chicago?
