CNN Glanced Over Violent Remarks of the Sister of Milwaukee Suspect

The title of the CNN piece was, “Tensions high after Milwaukee police shooting [1]“, and glanced over Sylville Smith’s sister’s remarks to burn down the suburbs of Milwaukee:

Family and friends of Sylville Smith, 23, held a candlelight vigil at the site of Saturday’s shooting in a residential area of North Milwaukee…
Smith’s sister, Sherelle Smith, urged protesters to take the violence elsewhere, sobbing as she lamented that she would never be able to again hug her brother.
“Take that s*** to the suburbs. Burn that s*** down,” Smith said. “You all want to hurt somebody, take that further out. Don’t bring it here.”
