The Chicago suntimes is biased. The editor redacts the story "shop owner's argument off-target" after it was posted on major news outlets. Only a caward buckles under political pressure such as the editor of this story. I'm sure if there was a group or armed thugs howling around his office harassing him he would have more sympathy and understand that Mr zoubeidi did what he had to do.
Read the calumet city police records. There were three armed robberies that took place within the past couple of years and six forced break inn's. The suntimes does not report any this information because it's Revelant and conflicts with the political atmosphere at hand regarding gun laws in this corrupt state.
From this day on I will refer to the Chicago suntimes as ( AlJazeera) until they get there facts straight.
Mr zoubeidi had a right to retrieve his merchandise, if the armed thug flashed his weapon in the process then zoubeidi had every right to shoot in self deference.
Quit wasting our tax money on flavorless prosecution and tend to more important issues such as the thirteen murders that happened over the weekend.

It is time that the citizens take back the city we once knew and not the slums it is today.

Texas has a great stand your ground law. This law would be perfect in this thug infested state. If we dont get our act together, this state will be like mexico with the cartels running the country.
