‘Perpetuating Stereotypes’ Again: Three More Mass Shootings This Weekend

Posted on | June 13, 2021 | Comments Off on ‘Perpetuating Stereotypes’ Again: Three More Mass Shootings This Weekend

When a mass shooting erupted early Saturday morning in downtown Austin, the local media refused to quote a police description of the suspects for fear of “perpetuating stereotypes.” Meanwhile . . .

CLEVELAND, Ohio — Three people died and four people were injured in an early-Saturday shooting. None of the victims have yet been identified in the shooting that happened about 2:30 a.m. on Buckeye Road near East 89th Street.

SAVANNAH, Georgia — A mass shooting killed one person and left two others in critical condition. According to the Savannah Police Department (SPD), there are eight total victims in Friday night’s shooting. Arthur Milton, 20, was killed in the gunfire. Also a 13-year-old and an 18-month-old baby are both suffering non-life-threatening injuries. Police said the shooting occurred near the Fred Wessels Home apartments on Avery Street. Shots rang out around 9 p.m. when a dark-colored or red car drove by the residence and fired into a crowd of people outside the home. Police Chief Roy Minter said a shooting occurred on the same street on Tuesday night but no witness came forward with details.

CHICAGO, Illinois — Ten people were shot early Saturday morning in an attack in Chatham on the South Side, Chicago police said. The Cook County Medical Examiner has identified Kimfier Miles, 29, as the person killed in the mass shooting. The shooting happened just after 2 a.m. in the 7500-block of South Prairie Avenue, according to CPD. Chicago police said the victims were on the sidewalk when two male suspects approached and opened fire. A crowd of people were in the area where the shooting occurred later Saturday morning. Locals say it’s known as a spot where people bring their stylish cars and motorcycles to show them off.

Police haven’t issued descriptions of the suspects in any of these mass shootings, but at risk of “perpetuating stereotypes,” I’m going to take a wild guess and say none of the shooters were Trump voters.
