ThinkProgress "LGBTQ Editor" Zack Ford deleted a tweet on Tuesday where he slammed conservatives for being "thrilled" that an innocent woman shot and killed a 19-year-old armed mugger in Chicago.
"Conservatives are thrilled a woman with a concealed-carry permit shot and killed a 19-year-old would-be mugger," Ford tweeted Monday. "That's not how justice works. The penalty for theft is not death, nor do we want it to be."
"The kid was 19!" Ford said in another tweet after getting pushback. "I just feel like we're being way too disposable with his life. A gun death is a gun death, and the fact she was about to protect herself in no way motivates me to change my belief that she should not have had a gun in the first place."
Ford was reacting to the story of a 25-year-old unnamed Chicago woman who shot and killed 19-year-old career criminal Laavion Goings after he pulled a gun on her during an attempted robbery.
As The Chicago Tribune reported last week:
Laavion Goings had been released from Cook County Jail two months earlier after pleading guilty to a drug charge and was on probation at the time of the robbery, according to authorities.Translation: a leftist judge let him off to "fight systemic racism."
The shooting was not only celebrated by conservatives but also Chicago locals (who actually have to live in the area unlike Ford):
In Ford's dream world, Laavion should have gotten another slap on the wrist and be let back out on the streets.
That's how justice works!
