Another defensive shooting shooting in Chicago
It seems to be becoming the new fad. Or perhaps this was always happening, and the media only now covers it -- which might be even more significant.
Note the mantra: the shootee admits to throwing a rock or brick through the woman's window, the neighbors say he harasses everyone, and his family and friends say "He wasn't the type of little boy to do that; to throw a brick in an old lady's window like that."
Hat tip to reader Jim Kindred...
Oftentimes, a bullet wound is a great educational tool.
My over/under on these two mutants is 30/70.

I'm continually disgusted with the trend of family/friends of thugs declaiming what a saint the thug was.
