It's a war zone in some areas of Chicago, but the news keeps saying "people" are dying. No, thugs are shooting thugs and sometimes accidentally capping innocent bystanders like that three-year-old boy.
Thugs are shooting thugs, sure, but it's not just "sometimes" that innocent bystanders are getting shot. Saying otherwise is overly simplifying things, not to mention dehumanizing victims of violent crime in Chicago.

Uh... don't give a **** what she says about other things, I was just quoting that one tweet due to the numbers and the percentage.

Her opinions on other things aren't relevant, nor do I even care. I was just quoting her because I follow Dan Sinker, the guy that did the parody Rahm Emmanuel account, and he retweeted that.
