    WBBM TV in Chicago recently aired a program on violence in Chicago. Included in the program was a video of an interview with a 4 year old black boy.

    "Kids on the street as young as four were there to see it all unfold, and had disturbing reactions," then-anchor Steve Bartelstein said, leading into video of an interview with the four-year-old boy.

    When asked, "What are you going to do when you get older?" the boy responds: ā€œIā€™m going to have me a gun!ā€


    End of video..........

    Shocking!! Scary!! The sort of thing that simply proves the point of certain posters here and around the world.

    Except - they didn't show the full interview.

    In the full interview the reporter asks the boy "You are! Why do you want to do that?ā€

    And the little boy replies:

    ā€œI'm going to be the police!ā€

    WBBM Distorts Child Interview: Chicago CBS Outlet's Misleading Editing Of Kid's Remarks (VIDEO)

    So go ahead - tell me how the video was cut because of time constraints, because his explanation was irrelevant, because it didn't add anything to the story, because it made no difference or whatever other justification you can come up with.

    I say it was deliberate and it is part of a sickness which fills a pandering media and the hearts of far too many viewers who only want to imagine the bad, see the bad, hear the bad and propagate the bad - and if it's not happening they're only too happy to manufacture it.

    And it's disgusting.

    And yet you are both very disbelieving and defensive when someone like Breitbart or FOX News is accused of it.

    Methinks the dreaded "H" word is rearing it's ugly head here once again.

    I don't know, I wonder if "the good folks" on this forum will go after her, if I report a Gang Banger blowing a little kids brains out I'm the racist and the media that originally reported it are doing their job.

    I think the Democrat Media is racist for printing this story about the 4 year old and the gun, they seem to be trying to "get something going"

    Gang Bangers are f-cking animals who devour each other so the hell with them.

    The agenda was to draw attention to gang violence, That's fine. but the edited interview told a lie that can only add fuel to the fire. I hope this backfires on Steve's dream of a Pulitzer. Actually I hope it gets him fired.

    I don't care about the topic you want to discuss...

    But I notice that the kid has a perversion of what the police is, and in his mind, the police is only the people who have the most force to inflict damage...

    He should not be allowed on the police as he will be one of the ones who indiscriminately kills before ensuring he's shooting the right person or even if he should shoot.

    The fact that a 4 year old is discussing issues like this is a microcosm of the culture which is being spread in the urban settings. The urban culture is a regression culture if I have ever seen one, punished for being smart, and each generation is rewarded for making poor decisions earlier and earlier in life...

    It's another world, and a world I want 0 of my money going too...

    Talk about misquoting!!

    Sums up everything you know about anything, Harry - and how you report it back to us.

    Perfectly.

    No wonder you think the Koran promotes violence - you don't even know what your own bible says.

    Agendas aren't bad if they're honest and don't promote hate and violence.

    Well, you can't win em all, maybe it was Jesus Christ or Abraham that said it, somebody said something like it somewhere in that book, I think I've told you before "I spent 3 years in the seventh grade.

    Who Said it.........................:confused:

    That's quite a conclusion to draw from a kid saying he's going to have a gun b/c he's going to be the police.

    I'm guessing many, if not most, boys associate police with uniforms and guns.

    When I was a kid we always played with toy or imaginary guns. It's part of being a boy, isn't it? I don't think you can draw any conclusions about this particular boy based on that brief "interview."

    Mrs, to answer your question, I have no reason to think it was racist, but horrible journalism and unethical, yes.

    Agreed - and many, if not most, young children look to the police to protect them. Wanting to grow up and be one of those doing the protecting is not a bad thing.

    I would be proud to have a child who wanted to become a policeman. In fact, I don't know any parent of any little boy who hasn't, at one time or another, heard his pre-school little boy say he was going to grow up and be a policeman or a fireman.

    Are all of them to be suspected of being somone who who will indiscriminately kill before ensuring he's shooting the right person or even if he should shoot?

    Or is it just the little ghetto kids?

    Something's seriously wrong with anyone who reads anything dangerous or bad in a 4 year old wanting to be "the police."

    Would you agree that, regardless of the motives, the edited version promotes racism?

    Only among those predisposed to think that way, imo -- and while that's not a good thing, they're going to have those opinions anyway.

    I agree you're being a hypocrite (what exactly is the connection between this tv station and Andrew Breitbart?).

    Anyway, please provide an example of me doing what you've accused me of. TIA.

    Harry doesn't break the rules this post is more of a rule breaker than anything Harry posts.


    He doesn't refer to other posters in a disparaging way as youdo in your post.

    He attacks libs generically which is fine just as Patters attacks conservatives generically.

    There is a difference, I hope you can see this.

    That post kind of rocked me too. Soooooooooooo, I guess the police should send the rejection letter to a 4 year old who wants to be a police officer because he wants a gun. Got it!
