Little baby Dillan Harris was buried Saturday in a tiny white coffin.
The 13-month-old wore a white suit as his family celebrated his short life.
A week after little Dillan was run-down by a man fleeing a South Shore shooting, about 500 family, friends and loved ones gathered at Gatling’s Chapel on the city’s South Side.
#BlackLivesMatter? Not so much when it’s black-on-black… Oh, you were wondering why this wasn’t all over the news and Al Sharpton was shlepping his fat ass to Chicago to call all white people racist?
Back to the funeral: From the Sun Times:
They wept as they viewed the baby’s body, unable to comprehend why the smiley baby became an innocent victim of Chicago’s violence.
A nurse was on hand to make sure people weren’t overcome.
Though he wasn’t killed in a shooting, Dillan, known as “Dill Pickle,” was run over as he sat in his stroller, waiting with his family to head to the beach.
Authorities allege Antoine Watkins was driving a car that was fleeing a fatal shooting in the 7700 block of South Kingston that claimed the life of 22-year-old rapper Marvin “Capo” Carr. Watkins has been charged with murder in Dillan’s death.
Dillan’s parents, grandparents, siblings and a host of uncles, aunts and cousins sat in the front rows, most wearing white. They did not speak during the service but wrote in the funeral program, which was decorated with Mickey Mouse: “Baby Dillan will forever be in our hearts.”
“The hurt. Oh Lord, the hurt. I know of no hurt like that of a child taken in death,” the Rev. Neil Redd told mourners, adding: “Only the Lord knows why he would take a child. He may or he may not give a reason to us. Don’t be angry with God. It hurts so bad because we don’t understand.”
25 more shot in Chicago over the weekend – thank the Lord for that strict gun control they got there, eh?
Black lives don’t matter to the #BlackLivesMatter bigots.
