Remember, Police Are the Problem
- Two 16-year-old boys have been charged with killing another 16-year-old boy in the Austin neighborhood in what was the 99th homicide of 2016, according to authorities.
Tiawyan McDade killed Dijuan Williams near Huron Street and Lorel Avenue in the city's Austin neighborhood, according to prosecutors. McDade was ordered held Thursday in lieu of $1 million bail.
He and another boy, a 16-year-old charged as a juvenile who authorities did not name, are accused of approaching Williams and asking about a gang affiliation before McDade shot Williams at the other juvenile's direction.
The shooting happened on Feb. 24 about 6:15 p.m. It was the 99th homicide this year in Chicago.
This was a properly purchased and carried weapon, right? Everyone involved had Concealed Carry licenses and had passed a background check and the state-mandated courses? And surely no one of color was involved?
