Arrests made in fatal shooting of 5-year-old -

Three males have been arrested for the fatal shooting a five-year-old girl. The crime was committed in 2014.

Reports say Laylah Petersen was sitting on her grandfather's lap when she was struck twice in the head by bullets. The little girl was in her Milwaukee home at the time of the shooting. The bullets were fired from outside the house.

Charged with the crime are 24-year-old Paul Farr, 20-year-old Carl Barrett and 23-year-old Arlis Gordon.

The media failed to categorize the murder as a hate crime. Rather, the crime was presented as the victim being in the wrong place at the wrong time.

The assumption is the alleged killers were seeking revenge for a person who was acquitted of homicide. They shot up the wrong house, reports say.

The crime was committed in Milwaukee, Wis.

• Meanwhile, privileged white liberals hide out in pristine whitopian neighborhoods, far removed from the savage urban violence which they pretend is caused by white privilege. One would expect compassionate white liberals would relocate to black urban areas where they could redistribute their privilege and, in so doing, save thousands of lives from gun violence while establishing abortion clinics.

• Laylah Petersen was unarmed at the time of the shootings.

Nearly a year after the tragic death of Laylah Petersen, on Tuesday, October 20th, Milwaukee police announced the arrest of three suspects -- who have been charged in connection with Petersen's death.

Laylah Petersen would have turned six years old on September 23rd. But her young life was cut short when she was shot while she was sitting on her grandfather's lap inside a home near 58th and Fairmount on November 6, 2014.

Petersen died at the hospital, as a result of two gunshot wounds to her head. Her death was ruled a homicide.

"I've been carrying something around with me for a year. And it's Laylah. I'd like to think we can put her to rest now," Milwaukee Police Chief Ed Flynn said Tuesday of a button with Laylah's picture on it he's been carrying since November 6th, 2014.


Chief Flynn said on Tuesday the shooting death of Laylah Petersen occurred on the same day a man was acquitted in a murder trial in Milwaukee County -- and Chief Flynn said the suspects "shot the wrong house."
