As civil unrest continues in the St. Louis area with even more riots promised should officer Darren Wilson escape punishment, another officer-involved shooting of a black teen is making news in Chicago.
Mike Brown, the young man fatally shot by Wilson in Ferguson, Mo. earlier this year, was initially portrayed as an innocent victim of an activist police force. Recent evidence has surfaced, however, showing the officer’s claim that he acted in self-defense is likely an accurate portrayal of events.
As it currently stands, the family of 17-year-old Tykwon Davis is floating a very similar narrative in Chicago, claiming the teen was shot in the back after being targeted by a cop. Police, though, say Davis shot at the officer who returned fire, critically injuring him.
