This had actually surfaced last month when we discussed this on here.  The late baby's father and mother are estranged if not separated legally now, as well as him being in jail on unrelated charges.

The odd thing is that the shooting suspects' families are also a wreck, with at least two of them facing obstruction of justice and/or destruction of evidence charges after lying about their sons' whereabouts and throwing an illegal pistol belonging to one of the suspects in a lake.  It was later recovered with the suspect's mom's help.

According to the report, "this supports the possibility that the individual discharged a firearm, was in close proximity to a firearm upon discharge or came into contact with an item whose surface bears GSR."

Well, as long as they're narrowing it down.  Does that mean if they picked up a baby who got shot at close range they'd get GSR on them?  I don't know how transferrable it is.

Also, all of these people need to be locked up.   After reading through this timeline, which ends with a Mayor getting arrested, it doesn't sound like anyone is telling the truth.

This case is nothing if not a mess... certainly not the clarion call that some were seeking when they started sharing it as concrete evidence of systematic oppression of whites by the legal system.

there's a surprise for you.
 
2013-07-30 11:54:10 AM
Doesn't everyone in Georgia test positive for gunshot residue?
 
2013-07-30 11:54:50 AM
A baby makes a crappy silencer but will do in a pinch.
 
2013-07-30 11:55:11 AM
He may have done it, but gsr is all over the damn place, spreads around like crazy, and there are plenty of ways to false positive iirc.
 
2013-07-30 11:55:32 AM
This is a major revelation in the case as well as the woman's story. As we all know, guns in southern states are exceedingly rare, and the state of Georgia has only one firearm.
 
2013-07-30 11:55:54 AM
But my facebook told me that this child was one of the "youngest murder victims this country has ever seen" and that Obama wouldn't care?

Now I'm confused. What derp?

Two black teens should hook up with overzealous staffer and really have some fun.

so they shot the baby and covered this poor guy's hand in residue?

can't trust any of them, i say
 
2013-07-30 11:58:36 AM
Is the dad a black teen?
 
2013-07-30 11:58:38 AM
Is it really that tough to confirm he was at a wal-mart at the time of the shooting? I would think he'd show up on security cameras, right?

//unless I missed that part in TFA
 
2013-07-30 11:59:03 AM
Is the mom's name Charles Stuart?
 
2013-07-30 11:59:10 AM
2wolves, what would your comment be, if he had used a knife instead?
 
2013-07-30 11:59:44 AM
If you tested me for GSR I would be positive.  I must be guilty of something.
 
2013-07-30 12:00:27 PM
Tried pointing this out to the chucklefarks on my Facebook feed, they just accused me of being blinded by the "lamestream media". Ok. Now what will the closet racists on my page use to try and show how awful it was that the media payed attention to the Trayvon case like it did?
 
2013-07-30 12:01:58 PM
So if they didn't kill that baby...who did they kill with the gun they threw into the lake and why did one of them confess?

Your friends are racists and you can't seem to logically interpret circumstantial evidence.

How does that make you feel?

The aunt of one of the kids dropped a dime on them and the mother of the baby just happened to pick those two out of the lineup?

What a coincidence.....right?

FTFA: "Ashley Glassey, daughter of Antonio's mother, Sherry West"

OK, I can be easily confused, but wouldn't it have been easier to write "sister?"  Or maybe step-sister.
 
2013-07-30 12:04:32 PM
Looks like the media may have found its next race baiting case to cover.
 
2013-07-30 12:05:48 PM
FTFA: Glassey said her mother had changed her story multiple times since the killing, and she even sort of suggested her mother might have killed Antonio for insurance money.

I feel like sht for even thinking "Maybe the kid was better off than to lead a life with that for a mother." ... Then again, I'm hopeful this entire story was pure fabrication. Not really a fan of this "news site."

Sarah Brady doesn't pay him to troll unless a gun is involved.

pretty much called this from day one.  The "two balck teens robbing me" story felt and smelled like BS from day one.   This ends with mom getting charged with capital murder and pleading insanity based on post-partum depression.  I'm laying my marker down now.
 
2013-07-30 12:08:10 PM
At the time, Ashley Glassey, daughter of Antonio's mother, Sherry West, ...

Keep in mind- this is someone who went to school for and is paid to write.
Yay J school!

They "found" it? What happened to all the shrill cries that they were ignoring it?

vernonFL: Is the dad a black teen?


Wouldn't that make him the "baby daddy," instead?

2013-07-30 12:09:39 PM
The lesson here is, if your teens have any unlicensed guns laying around, throw them in the lake BEFORE they get accused of shooting a baby.
 
2013-07-30 12:11:50 PM
I think they were Asian.

Were you not one of the people that brought this case up when the Trayvon threads were in full swing?

I'm in Georgia, and have GSR on me regularly.  Maybe I did it?
 
2013-07-30 12:15:46 PM
Well, that's a shame. People are going to have to go find another article where they can cry about there not being any media attention when a black person kills a white person even though the black person is already in jail and/or convicted of murder.

Really shocking that you're the first person to bring up race.

Was going to say this.  It isn't really proof of anything besides living in Georgia.

elffster: If only Zimmerman..


The victim was a white Hispanic, after all.

Here's the thing, since people are getting all puffed up and sensitive about this: there was a shooting, there was an investigation, there were arrests, the investigation continued and is looking at all the angles.

Why didn't this get plastered all over the news?  Because when an unarmed minor was killed, it was treated AS A CRIME from the get-go.  And now we're finding out that this might be the most soul-crushing group of people you could imagine, from the suspects to the imprisoned baby-daddy, to the sister to this mother.

The answer is you are a racist.

I heard it was some Puerto Rican guy and these guys want him for questioning too.
