Chicago TV Station Apologizes For Making 4-Year-Old Sound Violent

A CBS news station is under fire after it misquoted a 4-year-old boy making him purposely sound violent on the air.

In the video, the child tells a reporter from WBBM that the shootings don’t scare him and that, when he grows up, “I’m going to have me a gun.”

The comment made it seem like the streets of Chicago had a future criminal on their hands. But the comment was taken out of context as the station only aired the comment and not what came after.
