- Chicago police shot and killed a man on a CTA Red Line train early Saturday who, officials alleged, was walking through the train with a gun.
[...] But several witnesses who telephoned the Tribune and other media outlets Saturday countered that version of events, arguing that Lash appeared unarmed and that the shooting appeared unjustified.
"I didn't see a gun at all," said Natalie Bruce, who said she was on her way home from church when the shooting occurred. "The officers put his hands behind his back. They seemed like they were patting him down, and they tussled a little bit, but they had him pinned against the wall."
We're assuming the Tribune is going to stand by their reporting that Ms. Bruce was headed home from church at 2 AM and not from Church's Chicken. And we're sure the Tribune, being upstanding corporate citizens who never ever be involved in anything shady, immediately forwarded this citizen's story and contact information to the proper investigative body.
This is why we can't wait for these newspapers to go under.
