    How’s that gun ban working for you Chicago?

    If you want to mess with the constitution why don’t you change the part that allows these gang bangers to hang out and terrorize entire neighborhoods?

    Some gangbangers do keep the neighborhoods safe. Yes, they do have their ways, but if you have lived in a neighborhood long enough, you do get your respect.

      Gang members keep the neighborhood safe?? Are you on crack? Gang members are the root of the problem. Gangs revolve around 3 things; money, dope, and guns. These gangbangers are killing children, not keeping anybody safe.

    Why can't you people stop living like animals? Isn't it time to do something with your lives, and stop killing eachother? You're going to make Chicago the next Detroit.

    My prayers go out to the family of this young kid. Every nationality has some bad apples but come on be for real because young kids are being recruited by gang members and its up to the parents and the police department to do something about it.

    • Fed up

      No, it's not up to the police department. The police department is there to enforce laws, not raise children. That's up to the kids parents, and is their sole responsibility. Yes, responsibility! I know that it's a word they don't like to hear. Nobody else can raise these children but the parents. There should be a law that if your child gets convicted of a felony, the parents should serve time as well as the child, or the parents should lose their government benefits, that would light a fire under their a$$!

        What does government benefits have to do with this issue…..dude some of us have real jobs. The police do the exact same thing as gangbangers do and thats harass people.

    EVERYBODY NEEDS TO GET OFF THEIR HIGH HORSE AND STOP TRYING TO PAINT THE VICTIM LIKE AN INNOCENT VICTIM. HE TOO WAS A GANG MEMBER AND WELL DOCUMENTED ON FILE WITH THE POLICE SO HIS PARENTS MUST OF BEEN DOING SOMETHING WRONG ALSO
