    Nine-year-old Tyshawn Lee was targeted because of his father's gang ties, lured into a South Side alley Monday afternoon and executed, Chicago police officials said Thursday.

    Speaking at the edge of the Gresham alley where Tyshawn was shot multiple times, Chicago police Superintendent Garry McCarthy called the slaying "probably the most abhorrent, cowardly, unfathomable crime" he had seen in his 35 years in law enforcement.

    McCarthy said police believe Tyshawn was killed because of his father's gang ties and a recent series of shootings between rival gangs.

    Sad that he won't have a chance to grow up and do his own killing.

    He loved to play basketball and always carried one. His basketball was found near where he was slain.

    So he died doing what he loved.

    He's nine, man. At least save your racism for someone who's earned it.

    Yea, that was racist, too.

    And I apologize. I thought you were being facetious about Tyshawn going to college.

    I thought he was mocking the painfully white white people that subscribe to the bullshit that every black person killed by a white guy was about to start college. :dontknow:

    Oh. I honestly didnt know white people thought that.

    I, for one, believe that this nine year old was had zero plans to attend college at the time of his death.

    That's pretty racist for you to assume he might not be one of those advanced students who go to college at a very young age.
