    I feel for the child. At least the attack didn't happen on the West or South side. Goes to show you that there is violence on whatever side of town you live in.

      Sure keep telling yourself that. This is one event for every 100 events on the South or west sides.

        At least the attack didn't happen on the South or West sides? Really?? You know that you're from the ghetto when you're relieved that a violent crime actually DIDN'T happen in your neighborhood.

    Why are they not already doing life in prison? Three years later and a trial date has just been set? How absolutely awful for the families who deserved justice a long time ago.
