Dozier said though McCollum is not in a gang now, that doesn't mean he was a random victim. The police report states the shooting may have been gang-related.Two guys got out of a white car and started shooting at him. Yeah, it was 'gang-related'. Whether mistaken identity, 'revenge' for past connections, or he's not turning much around.... hard to know. What we do know is the standard 'blame the guns' meme is the excuse for Chicago's failure in social experimentation.
Help us reduce the flow of illegal guns into the streets of Chicago.-MDA-ILNow let's look at another shooting that occurred recently and the history.
Jerome N. Harris, 17, was shot about 9 p.m. Sunday in the 1100 block of West 112th Place and died about an hour later at Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, authorities said.This individual is going to go down in the Anti's books as a 'child gun death' but let's go back two years to when he was 15 or 16:
Harris had previously been charged with several felonies for allegedly firing shots at a police officer in August 2012, according to police and court records.So he shot a police officer. What happened to him?
Harris pleaded guilty in October 2013 to aggravated unlawful use of a weapon, and aggravated assault of a police officer, court records show. The other charges, including attempted murder, were dropped.So he was out of jail after less than two years served for actively trying to kill someone. This is the kind of revolving door 'justice' system that's in place in Chicago/Cook County. How many charges had been dropped/pled down against the shooters of McCollum or the dozens of other repeat, violent offenders in the city? Why are they out running the streets?
It has nothing to do w/ 'flow of illegal guns' and everything to do w/ incompetence, laziness, and a cultural lack of ethics/morals.
