“The police pulled a gun like he was going to shoot him too, telling him to back up,” said Veronique Jones, the victim’s cousin. “He was just laying there. He didn’t have no weapon or nothing. He was just trying to hop a gate.”Yep. "Trying to get his life together" so he runs from the cops. And how do his friends and family honor him? By posting pictures of him.
“He never posed a threat or anything,” said friend Jay White. “He had a warrant of his arrest that he knew of…so maybe that’s why he took off running.”
Well that's not bad. Many of us like posting pictures posing w/ guns, right even ignoring the various 'rules' breaking here.
From the Sun Times:
Hmmm. Kind of like this one?Police said a Glock semi-automatic handgun — with a laser sight and an extended high-capacity magazine — was found at the scene.
Now I don't know if that's the exact gun or not but I'm going to hazard a guess this 20 yr old did not have a valid FOID, did not legally purchase any of the various firearms pictured, nor did he have a concealed carry permit.
But the family is going to back this 'good boy' 100% no matter the facts.
H/t to GSL.
