    Unfortunately, some of these teens think they are Billy ba_ a__! They want to act like they do in the movies and on the video games. Not to mention they are taught no respect for adults or each other. So if you wanna be a thug that’s what your consequences are eventually going to be!

      If the cops would’ve let that good for nothing live, who knows what he would’ve done later and perhaps worse. They killed him due to his stupid actions and everyone has a problem with it. Damned if they do, damned if they don’t.

      I do not agree all are disgusting pigs. However most of us know how the cpd gets down. 9 out of 10 the killings are made against minorities and they have the unwritten (but widely known) rule that goes – if a minority goes up against the CPD “they are not to make it out alive”. i know what most white pple will rally against this statement, (note: I am 50% hispanic and 50% caucasian married to an educated, (100% Irish), woman who happens to agree), because most don’t want to admit that this is what goes on in the highly regarded, decorated and influential Chicago Police Department. When it comes to corrupt police Chicago is a bastion of depravity ridden individuals who act as a whole using the CPD banner. The last sentence is not an opinion it is fact and you don’t need to dig deep to find that out. This has been going on since Capone, no strike that, most likely since its inception.
