Gang Executes 9 Year Old; Father’s Reaction HORRIFIC

Gang Executes 9 Year Old; Father’s Reaction HORRIFIC

How many more babies have to die before something is done in Chicago? This young boy is one more victim in a long list of victims in a city of unchecked violence, a city that has been forgotten, plundered or ignored by Democrats for decades. If the President had a son, would he look like Tyshawn? Based on the way he ignores his hometown’s huge problem with homicide, probably not. Our President is only for the underdog when there are political points to score. I wonder if Obama will meet with Tyshawn’s mother like he met with Mike Brown’s? Read on to see for yourself the senseless tragedy.

It’s almost impossible to read through the news on Monday without hearing that Chicago street violence has hit another all time high. But now MSN reports that the lowest of the low in society –gang members — have actually set a new record by killing a 9-year-old boy in a gang-related hit:

Nine-year-old Tyshawn Lee was targeted because of his father’s gang ties, lured into a South Side alley Monday afternoon and executed, Chicago police officials said Thursday.

Speaking at the edge of the alley where Tyshawn was shot multiple times, Chicago Police Superintendent Garry McCarthy called the slaying “probably the most abhorrent, cowardly, unfathomable crime” he had seen in his 35 years in law enforcement.

McCarthy said police believe Tyshawn was killed because of his father’s gang ties and a recent series of shootings between rival gangs.

Tyshawn, a fourth-grader at Joplin Elementary School who loved to play basketball, was walking to his grandmother’s house Monday afternoon when police said he was lured to the alley in the 8000 block of South Damen Avenue and shot repeatedly.

A basketball he always carried with him was found nearby.

McCarthy told reporters that Stokes might know who killed his son but that he has refused to cooperate with police. When investigators approached him, Stokes responded with words that “you can’t say … on TV,” McCarthy said.

Earlier Thursday, Stokes showed up at the Leighton Criminal Court Building for a status hearing on a felony gun charge he faces. His attorney didn’t appear, so the judge gave him a continuance after Stokes mentioned “my son was killed.”

According to court records, Stokes pleaded guilty to armed robbery in mid-2011 and was sentenced to six years in state prison.”

When do members of these communities rise up and say “no more of our children will be killed”? If we are looking for proof of what the breakdown of the family does to people; men, women and children, look no farther than Chicago. When the family unit is nonexistent, then neighborhoods become violent war zones with every man, or boy, for himself. Children like precious Tyshawn should be protected by their fathers, not killed because of their criminal activity and then denied justice when he refuses to come forward and assist in the murder investigation. Fathers are meant to be their family’s protectors. And leaders are meant to go after the criminals, not allow them to have free reign, and bring death and destruction wherever they go. When is enough, enough?
