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.

Looting? Vice President Kamala Harris might have set up a bail fund for him.

CWB Chicago reports:

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.

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

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.
