Hey, Media: Chicago Teen's Shooting Called Gang-War Mistake
Apparently, gun downed honor student Hadiya Pendleton was in the "wrong place at the wrong time."
The Chicago teen who was killed days after performing in President Obama's inauguration may have simply been in the "wrong place at the wrong time." Chicago's superintend says, calling the shooting a matter of "mistaken identity." The shooting, police believe, was part of a turf war among gangs, but Hadiya Pendleton had no gang links--nor, it appears, did any of those with her that day. The gunman, however, seemed to confuse the group with gang members.
This tragic story just got worse. But it's a story that can't be used to score political points by the gun-control fanatics in Congress and in the national press. So, the mainstream media that has virtually ignored the daily carnage in the city of Chicago can now go back to looking the other way.
