“A concealed carry license holder is suing the city of Chicago and a handful of police officers after she and her son were charged with murder in the fatal shooting of a man who was seen on camera punching the woman before her son intervened.
Carlishia Hood, 35, and her 14-year-old son were charged with first-degree murder this month for the fatal shooting of Jeremy Brown, 32, on June 18. Just days later on Monday, prosecutors dropped the charges against Hood and her son.”
Analyst Comment: This follows a pattern of overzealous prosecution of citizens exercising their right to self-defense. Charges are dropped after public outcry, evidencing the political nature of these prosecutions. Unfortunately this practice is extending beyond left-wing strongholds as a recent example in TN demonstrates.
