The Boys Were Left to Terrorize the Neighbors, Now the Parents Are Shocked

The Brady Bunch Campaign would call this a teen tragically shot. The fact that he is charged with aggravated assault for what he was doing when his intended-victim defended herself, is beside the point (to them). Why clutter the issue with facts? Mom: Boy in psychiatric care after being shot by woman
A 12-year-old boy who was shot by an elderly South Shore homeowner after he allegedly threw bricks at her is in psychiatric care, recovering from the trauma of being shot, his mother said Tuesday.
What about the trauma of having bricks thrown at you?
The boys had terrorized the woman and the neighborhood for months before she finally snapped and shot the boy, neighbors said at the time.
Snapped? Media bias much? How about the boys had terrorized the neighborhood until they escalated to the point where self-defense was called for? No, that wouldn't be painting the gun-owner with a brush of disdain.

Margaret Mathews, 68, has not been charged with any crime, because even in the City of Chicago, self-defense is a human-right.
