Young Black Intruder Shot in Chicago By 80-Year-Old Black Homeowner

And the old guy gets arrested. What’s Reverend Al going to say about this one?

Englewood business owners say they are outraged that police charged an elderly business owner for allegedly shooting an intruder — even though that business owner is a convicted felon.

Anthony Robinson, 19, was allegedly trying to break into 80-year-old Homer Wright’s home in the 6400 block of South Morgan Street to steal liquor about 6:30 a.m. when Wright shot him in the leg, police said.

Wright, a convicted felon, is not allowed to own a gun and was charged with unlawful use of a weapon, a felony, police said.

Hopefully sanity prevails and Wright’s charge is reduced to something that makes sense.
