Mitchell v. Jakes - Community Loses
First up, hack columnist, race baiter and thug apologist Mary Mitchell actually making some sense:
- Suppose Taniya and Patrice had been mistakenly shot by a jittery white police officer who thought the unidentified male they were talking to had a weapon?
"The people" would have packed the street to confront the cop who fired the shots, as they did after the recent police shooting involving Aaron Harrison, 18.
Yet, it isn't the out-of-control cops who regularly kill black children.
According to the Chicago Police Department, so far this year there have been 27 police-involved shootings -- 12 of them fatal. Of the 27 police shootings, 10 involved persons 19 years old and under.
During that same period, 1,253 persons were shot by random civilian gunfire. Of that number, 410 victims were 19 years old and under. The total number of fatal shootings in this age group was 44. Also, four teenagers were bludgeoned, four were stabbed, one was burned to death and four others were killed by an unknown weapon.
Next up, we have play reverend, failed mayoral candidate and race baiter extraordinaire, Paul Jakes who is quoted thusly:
- The Rev. Paul Jakes, a former mayoral challenger, counted 20 shootings at the hands of police this year, 10 of them fatal. "There are too many trigger-happy cops out there, and they think black life is cheap," Jakes said.
- Mitchell claims 27 police shootings (12 fatal) amidst 1,253 "civilian" shootings (anyone got the latest homicide numbers?)
- Jakes claims 20 police shootings (10 fatal) and a free fire zone led by police stacking up dead black people so you cant drive down the streets.
