AHA!!!

"Authorities said he was shot after he tried to fight back when five young men attempted to rob him.

But the teen’s family insisted he was really killed because he was gay."

So this was just another victim shot during a robbery but NO of course it had to be BECAUSE HE WAS GAY!

First, what are teens doing with a gun?

Second, what names were they calling him? That might indicate whether or not it was a hate crime.

Third, Murray - a person was killed and you turn the victim into a culprit because of your prejudice. I don't know where in Europe you are, but please stay there and stay away from North America. We have enough a-holes here already.

I think the facts say it was a robbery.

Thanks to Democrat failed policies the murder rate in Chicago is more like Syria.

They rob and kill each other off as life is liberal cheap. Failed Mayors is what dems offer and crime is rampant there.

"Santini told the Sun-Times that the 14-year-old pulled the gun out on Wright while he was waiting for the bus and demanded he give him money. While Carter watched, the boy and another uncharged co-defender attempted to take money out of the victim’s pockets but Wright refused to hand over his belongings and told the 14-year-old to get the gun out of his face.

Wright allegedly punched the boy and tried to grab the weapon but it went off during the struggle, Santini added. After Carter took his gun back the three fled the scene.

Carter is being held on $2 million bail."

Lol could you be anymore lib clueless.

"First, what are teens doing with a gun?" It is west world ill run Chicago where teenage criminals carrying illegal guns are never punished thus they laugh at laws.

You libs refuse to put them away and the thugs know it and mock the system. Your liberal weakness not only promotes crime but rewards it.

Using "LOL" in a report about the death of a young man at the beginning of his life is repulsive and mean spirited. The poor kid had been gay taunted for years.

Didn't you read the article? You have spun this terrible story and made it all about your hatred of liberals, completely ignoring the death. Have some CHRISTIAN compassion.

The filth that shot the queer are pure garbage,$#[email protected]'$ finest.
They're going away for quite some time, hate crime charges or not.
At least there's an alleged silver-lining.
There's one less alleged queer and that should be good enough for anyone.
There's no point being served to punish these boys just because they offed some queer.
Throwing these children in prison won't bring back the queer, even if someone wanted that to happen.
Let the children go and show some charity and lenience.

The irony is that these fine boys you seem to love so much will spend a good long time in prison and since they are so young will probably be passed around as sex objects to big mean prisoners. THAT'LL teach them a lesson or two.

If they had killed your precious little ankle biter, you would be screaming for their blood, hypocrite.

Irony really. They go to jail for either a murder or a murder and hate crime. And they'll get "loved" by the other prisoners. I love this.

This is a clear cut case of robbery/murder. The fact the victim happened to be gay is purely incidental and of no relevance at all.

Hate crime? Come on gays, get a grip!

You post after this betrays that you just hate the gay people. That same post is also the reason we need hate crime laws in the first place.
