When Will They March For This 9 Year Old?

From the Chicago Tribune: A 9-year-old boy was killed and at least seven others were wounded in separate shootings on the city's South and Northwest Sides, officials said.
The boy killed had been shot in the 1200 block of East 71st Street in the city’s Grand Crossing neighborhood, police said. The boy was in a backyard near train tracks when he was shot in the chest, hands and arms, police said. The boy was taken to Comer Children's Hospital in critical condition where he was later pronounced dead, said police.
A resident on east 71st place described hearing six shots. He also said the sound of gunfire is very common due to the drug and gang activity in the area. Police with dogs were investigating the area nearby where train tracks were located.
The first shooting happened about 3:45 p.m. on the 3900 block of South Lake Park Avenue in the city's Oakland neighborhood. Two teens, ages 16 and 18, suffered gunshot wounds, according to Police News Affairs. The 16-year-old boy was taken in critical condition to Comer Children's Hospital in Hyde Park. The other teen was taken in critical condition to Stroger Hospital, said police.
So, when will Al, Barack, Jesse, Eric and all the other racists/thugs come out and march and riot on behalf of the 9 year old?
And more from the Chicago Sun:
A 9-year-old boy was fatally shot Wednesday afternoon in the backyard of an apartment building in the Greater Grand Crossing neighborhood on the South Side, authorities said.
Police responding to a call of shots fired in the 1200 block of East 71st Street about 4:05 p.m. found the boy shot multiple times in the backyard, police said.
He was taken to Comer Children’s Hospital, where he was pronounced dead, authorities said. The Cook County medical examiner’s office confirmed the death but did not have further details Wednesday night.
Rosetta Jordan, 81, who lives on the block, said her son, Eddie Jordan, 45, heard gunshots. Before going out to investigate, he ordered his 9-year-old son to the basement where he would be safe from stray gunfire.
She said her son found a “neatly dressed” boy lying in the backyard of a neighboring apartment building.
“I’m still shaking,” Rosetta Jordan said Wednesday evening. “It’s just so sad.”
