Here's Some Disconnect
Minutes after the State dropped charges against a "poet" whose only talent appears to be staring at people from a distance of three inches, this happened:
- The Auburn Gresham man who shot an 11-year-old girl in August was aiming for her adult cousin, prosecutors said Wednesday — but there were few outsiders in the courtroom to hear it.
"Why don't we have a packed courtroom for this?" Cook County Judge Peggy Chiampas demanded to know as Cordero Harris, 27, stood before her Wednesday afternoon on charges of aggravated battery and aggravated assault.
Minutes earlier, activist Malcolm London — who'd been charged with battery to police following a Laquon McDonald protest Tuesday evening — appeared in the same court room.
When charges against London were dropped, the myriad activists, protestors and reporters who had flooded Chiampas' courtroom to see London, stood up and left. Chiampas had to pause proceedings to account for the exodus.
"Why don't we have every single press person in the room for this case? For an 11-year-old child?" Chiampas bellowed Wednesday afternoon. "Why aren't there people protesting outside for this case?"
Because, Your Honor:
- it isn't a white cop doing the shooting;
- it doesn't fit the political narrative;
- only some black lives matter
Anyone ready to have that discussion on race that Eric Holder was so gung-ho about?
