Does Baby Dillan’s Life Matter To #BlackLivesMatter?
#BlackLivesMatter silent on the death of little Dillan…
Dillan Harris was buried Saturday in a tiny white coffin.
The 13-month-old wore a white suit as his family celebrated his short life.
A week after little Dillan was run-down by a man fleeing a South Shore shooting, about 500 family, friends and loved ones gathered at Gatling’s Chapel on the city’s South Side.
They wept as they viewed the baby’s body, unable to comprehend why the smiley baby became an innocent victim of Chicago’s violence. A nurse was on hand to make sure people weren’t overcome.
Though he wasn’t killed in a shooting, Dillan, known as “Dill Pickle,” was run over as he sat in his stroller, waiting with his family to head to the beach.
Authorities allege Antoine Watkins was driving a car that was fleeing a fatal shooting in the 7700 block of South Kingston that claimed the life of 22-year-old rapper Marvin “Capo” Carr. Watkins has been charged with murder in Dillan’s death. More
Meanwhile, 25 more shot in Chicago this weekend.
