Tyshawn Lee was targeted and lured into the location where he was fatally shot late last year and BlackLivesMatter was silent.
Tyshawn was 9 years old.
He was shot in a gang-related violent event and it was not done by a white cop, so his life did not matter to BLM, Obama, or Sharpton. They could not politicize it! It did not fit their narrative. Tyshawn was of no use to BlackLivesMatter
ABC& in Chicago reports:
“At this point, we believe that Tyshawn was targeted, lured to this spot and murdered. We believe that this is the most recent in a series of gang-related, violent events,” Supt. Garry McCarthy said during a news conference Thursday.
McCarthy said police are investigating any possible ties between Lee’s father, Pierre Stokes, and a gang that may be in conflict with another gang. McCarthy alleges that Stokes is not cooperating with police.
“We believe Tyshawn’s father has ties to a gang that is in conflict with another gang,” McCarthy said.
Stokes rejects these allegations and is frustrated with police focus on him.
“I don’t want to harm nobody, I just want to see justice for my son by seeing the person who did it – whoever did it – locked up. That’s all I ever want,” Stokes said.
Well Tyshawn’s father went for his own justice. 4 months later, he was charged with shooting the girlfriend of one of the men held in the killing of his 9-year-old son. Again, BlackLivesMatter is silent!
Pierre Stokes, who is 25, was charged with three counts of aggravated battery with a firearm and one count of unlawful use of a weapon by a felon in the shooting of the woman.
But BlackLivesMatter is silent. Obama and Sharpton are silent. You would think they would be all over this thug mentality that surrounded this poor child. You would think that they would address this issue that is MUCH bigger than the tiny fraction of incidents where a cop has a bad shoot.
Listen to the video as Brittany Hughes tells Tyshawn’s story, and tells the truth on the statistics of cops shooting those they should not. BlackLivesMatter is angry at the wrong people.
