I just wanted to mention that her death was random. She wasn't shot because she performed at the inauguration.
I hope that I was not implying that this is why this poor girl was shot. She was certainly not the intended target based on other articles that I
have read. Apparently she was shot in the back in the cross fire.
According to the Tribune...
Most of those who were in the park were gang members, and those in the group did not stay on scene to help after the shootings, according to
The witnesses did not stick around to help the police ID the shooter who got away in a car that was waiting for him. Surely, someone knows who the
shooter is. More than likely, he'll end up shot and killed too... and will never be brought to justice. No snitching in that culture...
How many more people have to die before society says enough is enough? I read the other day that a Chicago mother had just lost her 4th child to
violence in Chicago. 10 years earlier she had lost two sons and a daughter to Chicago violence.
You can't legislate violent and bloody crime away. The change has to come from within. Criminal thugs don't abide the law.
