The Internet Needs To Get Off Journalism’s Neck

People shot in Chicago not related to Jennifer Hudson merit a couple of inches in the “Chicago Crime” section:

A 15-year-old boy was fatally shot while apparently taking out the garbage Tuesday morning at his Back of the Yards home.

Alejandro Avitia was shot in the chest just after 11 a.m. in the 4800 block of South Bishop, a stretch that neighbors say has been plagued by gang violence. He died at the scene, according to police and Fire Department reports.
