Last Thursday, we featured a thread by Leonydus Johnson showing the faces of black children — as young as 11 months — who had been shot and killed. Among them was Jaslyn Adams, age 7:

CWB Chicago reports that the man alleged to have shot Jaslyn, Marion Lewis, 18, had two felony cases pending at the time of the shooting — making him the 18th person charged with killing, trying to kill, or shooting someone while awaiting trial on other felony charges.
Man charged with murder of 7-year-old girl at McDonald’s drive-thru is the 18th person charged with killing, trying to kill, or shooting someone in Chicago this year while awaiting trial on other felony charges. (He actually had 2 felony cases pending.)https://t.co/sqTyd5DhlZ

Looting? Vice President Kamala Harris might have set up a bail fund for him.
Marion Lewis had two felony juvenile cases pending — one for burglary and looting, the other for possessing a stolen motor vehicle — when he participated in the murder and other crimes this month, prosecutors said. He was previously convicted in juvenile court of a gun charge, possessing a stolen motor vehicle, criminal trespass to vehicle, burglary to auto, and attempted residential burglary as a juvenile, authorities said.
Police tracked down Lewis from a video he’d posted to social media before the shooting, but he jumped into a stolen Durango, crashed it, then tried to carjack a Land Rover that was carrying five occupants, including young children in safety seats, firing one shot through the driver’s side window.
Cops brought him in alive and charged him with 18 felonies, including first-degree murder, three counts of attempted first-degree murder, aggravated vehicular hijacking by discharge of a firearm, and six felony counts of aggravated discharge of a firearm. Imagine if cops had shot him, though.

Kim Foxx is still trying to find the men who tried to hang Jussie Smollett.
I was told this is fear mongering by @SAKimFoxx

This will continue until there are political repercussions for prioritizing the rights of criminals over the rights of law abiding citizens. Vote differently!

If CPD loses Qualified Immunity, so should Kim Foxx and any attorneys that follow her. Only then will we see charged felons in jail until their trial.

I'm surprised the picture that was chosen to be released wasn't of this guy as an adorable 5th grader.

How did he get an Illinois Firearms Owner Identification Card? He HAS to have one to possess a firearm or ammunition in Illinois.

Driver would most likely be charged if defense firearm had been used on this "poor baby"

Why was he out on bail again?

@SAKimFoxx @KimFoxx how’s the no bail plan working out? For us taxpayers citizens we think it’s absolutely madness what you’re doing. I’m sure the money Soros gave you helps you sleep at night despite

So, is LeBron James sick and tired enough of black lives being snuffed out to comment on this case?

Wonder if LeBron James will tweet how angry he is about this murder of a 7 year old girl? I'll hold my breath.

So, defund the police, end cash bail, end incarceration … what else is it progressives want? You know, in the name of eliminating systemic racism from our justice system.
