Witnesses said a man -- whom neighbors did not recognize and was wearing only one shoe -- was handing out free firecrackers to children playing tag in the parking lot.

The man had a brief exchange with Maiden, who then started running back toward his apartment. Witnesses said the man pulled out a handgun and fired twice at the child, hitting him once in the cheek.

"Did you shoot that boy? He said, 'Yeah, I shot him.' I said, 'Why?'" Taplin said.

But Cloninger only muttered words that didn't make sense, he said.

I wonder why this didn't make the front page of this board. It's had plenty of time.

Half-hearted and obligatory "sure, kill him bla bla whatever" CYA statements by the racist right to ensue.

Donald Maiden Jr., known as DJ, underwent surgery at Children’s Medical Center Dallas. He woke up from an induced coma Thursday, according to a fundraising site set up for the family.

Maiden will need several surgeries to repair his jaw. Mark Williams, the organizer of the fundraising site, hopes donations will offset some of the medical costs. As of Friday afternoon, $680 had been raised toward the $5,000 goal.


Hope he pulls through.

I'm wondering if the suspect, Brian Cloninger, had a valid handgun permit. I couldn't find any references.

LWNJ logic:

1. If a random white nutjob murders someone--it's the fault of the NRA, and all gun owners are lumped in as guilty lunatics out hunting Negroes.

2. If the murderer looks like Obama's son (if he had one) then it's just "kids being kids" or racism, how dare we attribute actual factual crime statistics to the demographic.

You can't make this hoplophobe nuttery up.

I read a quite disturbing article yesterday called "America's child death shame", while this incident doesn't fit snugly into that category, it's notable that it was in Texas, the state that has the highest death from child abuse rate.

3. If a white person murders someone it's a "random nut job" or justified.

4. If a black person murders someone it's normal black folks culture of thuggery.

5. All others, well no need to discuss.

What response do you want, squid? Confiscate all guns and lock up white people? Your trolling has become a joke.

"Dallas police arrested Brian Cloninger, 46, on an injury to a child charge."
Shouldn't the charge be attempted murder.................

I will be making a donation to help offset some of little DJ's medical cost, hope others do the same if they can.

Absolutely. Nobody in their right mind would defend this shooter in any way. Hard to tell what squid is looking for...always.

Injury to a child charge? Be interesting to follow this tragedy as it winds through the courts.

Difficult to understand how anyone could harm a child, then make excuses as to why they did. It is indeed a Shame a Tragic Shame.

Not only a non sequitur, but a particularly nasty one... unless you can comprehensively prove that illegal immigrants are the cause of most of the child abuse.

As the original article that I found that piece in said: "It's the elephant in the room", no one appears to be discussing or addressing it.

You got it.

It's also revolting that the right has turned this news into some sort of pity party for themselves.

I thought the story was pretty unusual, what with his nonchalance about the act.
