Imagine the mileage the “mainstream” media would get out of this story if the races of those involved didn’t conflict with the official narrative. From Fox News:
Two teenage boys were arrested Friday in the shocking shooting death of an infant, killed in the stroller his mother was pushing in a coastal Georgia town.
Seventeen-year-old De’Marquis Elkins is charged as an adult with first-degree murder, along with a 14-year-old who was not identified because he is a juvenile, Brunswick Police Chief Tobe Green said.
Little Antonio Santiago was shot in the face in front of his mother, Sherry West, who was also wounded. Authorities are racking their brains to come up with a comprehensible motive.
On its website, Brunswick describes itself as a nice little seaside town of 15,000, characterized by “charming nineteenth century Victorian-style homes, century old grand oaks, endless golden marshes, old magnolia tree lined streets and magnificently preserved buildings.” There are no safe havens.
The De’Marquis Elkinses of the world are always going to have weapons. Mothers need to have them too. However, that is not the point of view the national media would adopt, where it to give the story significant coverage. No doubt Michael Moore would demand graphic pictures of the dead baby to be published, together with screeds denouncing the Second Amendment, as if Elkins had the gun legally.
