Tyshawn Lee, a 9-year-old boy in Chicago, was murdered last week. It was an execution of a 9-year-old. Tyshawn lived in Barack Obama’s hometown, Chicago. Barack apparently hadn’t gotten around to “organizing” Tyshawn’s community before he retired to the House of Many Colors.
How could a 9-year-old be executed? His sperm donor is apparently a gang member and some rival bangers decided that killing his offspring would be a good thing to do. The killers haven’t been identified.
Tyler’s mom didn’t have money to bury him and the sperm donor wasn’t forthcoming with any cash so mom put up a GoFundMe page to raise the money for a proper burial. That’s where the story gets dicey. Mom bought a new car. The people who donated for Tyshawn’s funeral are not happy.
Mom says she made the down payment on her new car, a Chrysler 200, with money she’s been saving and the dealership put the purchase on Facebook. Her GoFundMe page was taken down on Sunday and she apparently got the $17,000 that was raised.
In a twist that could only come from Chicago, Tyshawn’s sperm donor also put up a GoFundMe page. That one was taken down as well. At this point we don’t know if Tyshawn had aunts or uncles, but we’ll monitor GoFundMe.
