Another Stupid Statement from the Trib

After the tragic shooting death of yet another Chicago child, 7-year-old Amari Brown, the Chicago Tribune Editorial Board issues yet another stupid statement: "We don't yet know the tick-tock that preceded the shooting of Amari - the swirl of bad acts and motivations that left him bleeding to death."

Yes we do.  Here's the tick-tock:

  • Amari's dad, Antonio Brown, is a high-ranking member of the Four Corner Hustlers
  • Antonio has a 22 page rap sheet, with 45 arrests for gun crimes, narcotics crimes, and forcible felonies
  • Antonio has a 5-pointed star tattooed on his forehead and a blunt tattooed on his cheek
  • Antonio was the intended victim of a gang shooting
  • Antonio had his 7-year-old son outside after midnight on a historically violent night in a historically violent neighborhood
But apparently Garry McCarthy is a bully for pointing out that Antonio Brown is responsible for his son's death.

  1. None of this ever talked about 2 or 3 days after a shooting, it would make too many people look bad. God damn shame.
