Two teens shot in Chicago. A reporter interviews a child at the scene. The reporter prefaces the short clip with “Kids on the street, as young as four, were there to see it all unfold, and a disturbing reaction:”
Reporter: When you get older you going to stay away from all these guns?
Reporter: What do you want to do when you get older?
Kid: I’m going to have me a gun!
The broadcast video clip ends here, and the news anchors comment on how scary this is. Little black kids who want guns! (Nevermind those troublesome ethical issues about interviewing kids on camera.)
Part of the video went unaired. The reporter goes on to ask, “Why do you want to do that?” and the kid replies, “I’m going to be the police.”
They left the scariest part on the cutting room floor, apparently.
