Again, the MSM is not helping the cause once the truth comes out!
One assumse they hope it doesn’t. But then they shouldn’t put those facts in the story.
A devout Christian married 54 years, Joe Cooper presides over a family that tallies 10 children, 28 grandchildren and 12 great-grandchildren…But, bullet by bullet, violence is costing his family.
It all seems so horrible doesn’t it?
The story gives us the body count. Grandson Kelsnic wounded, a cousin brain-dead, grandson Deron killed, Cooper’s son-in-law murdered. What a mess. Those guns roving about Miami are a dangerous gang, huh? Those evil, evil guns must be eliminated so that this poor innocent Cooper family is spared this random horror.
But wait. Innocent?
Several paragraphs down in the story we begin to see that the Coopers are not so very innocent after all.
The recent violence is a result of the Cooper grandsons and their drug dealing activities. It also seems that they may have stolen from other drug dealers and the shootings are acts of revenge as opposed to random “gun violence.”
As to the death of Cooper’s son-in-law, sadly his own daughter is the one responsible for that little deed. Apparently in a domestic dispute Cooper’s daughter stuck a shotgun in her loving hubby’s stomach and let go a death-dealing blast.
Then we learn that Deron was also killed in a drug deal.
None of this is really a result of “gun violence” but a result instead of criminal activity. To act as if this is “gun violence,” a term that usually refers to random acts of violence that afflicts innocent people — or at least offers that implication — is quite disingenuous here. The Cooper family is certainly devastated by violence, but it is violence of their own making.
