How sad

16-year-old boy shot by cop on city's South Side

Yes, sad that a 16-year-old lost his life. And sad that a hour after this story was posted on the Tribune website, dozens of people had commented on it based on the presumption that (a) the cops had shot an innocent kid, again, or (b) the kid had it coming.

Can't we wait for a few facts before inflicting our pre-formed opinions onto the public?
