According to the New York Post, the killing of a one year old boy in Brooklyn was likely gang related.
Witnesses say the shooting originated out of a “beef” the boy’s father and suspected shooter had.
The 21 year old father, according to the same article has an extensive arrest record.
NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg has already issued calls for more gun control following the incident.
While it might be easy to blame an inanimate object for such a heinous crime, that boy would still be alive if not for his father’s illicit activities.
As if the NYC government wasn’t politicizing the death of this boy enough, also from the Post,
Antiq’s death renewed the debate over the city’s controversial stop-and-frisk policy.
“A misguided ruling from a federal judge and two bills passed by the city council will make it harder for the NYPD to continue to reduce shootings and violent crimes, which primarily occur in minority communities, as we saw once again last night,” Bloomberg said
“I believe in stop and frisk 100 percent,” said Lisa Wilson, 70, who was on the 73 precinct community board for 10 years. Some of these kids have five or six guns in the house and their parents don’t know. I’m a mother and I’ve never had my kid go to jail. Without stop and frisk I know it’s going to get worse.”
