This brother was on his way to choir practice after working in a homeless shelter and whitey just shot him down. He didn do nuffing.Snark!
The Daily Herald quoted Patrol Chief Fred Waller saying, “When they approached [Augustus], he tried to push their hands away. He started flailing and swinging away, trying to make his escape. And as he was making his escape, reached for his weapon.”
The Chicago Sun-Times opinion column reports that Augustus had a Firearm Owners Identification (FOID) card, but could not confirm whether he had a concealed carry permit. It should be noted that a FOID card allows Illinois residents to purchase a gun for home defense but does not allow them to carry one on their person.
