A Non-Story From Ferguson, Missouri–Woman Shot In Driveby By “Four To Five Black Males”
A woman was shot in the head in an apparent drive-by shooting early Wednesday in the Missouri town wracked by protests following the fatal shooting of Michael Brown by a police officer. St. Louis County Police spokesman Brian Schellman said four to five black males apparently carried out the shooting on Highmont Drive in Ferguson, Mo., and fled in a car. The unidentified woman was transported to a hospital via EMS, but her condition was unknown just before 1:30 a.m. local time. It was not immediately clear if the shooting was in any way related to the recent unrest in Ferguson.
What was the race of the woman? Black? So, that makes it non-news–or white? So, that makes it non-news for an entirely different reason.
It was a driveby shooting so does that mean it was intentional? What race were the shooters? Black? Non-news.
This doesn’t happen much in my white neighborhood.
