good lets do nothing to decrease the violence, and lets not do anythings to create good paying jobs so maybe potential criminals wont have to become criminals, but lets ban smoking in bars!!! way to make good use of legislation. So all the healthy non smokers can be shot by gangbangers.

I grew up in West Englewood in the 1950's and 60's when it was a very nice neighborhood.I have such fond memories of that time that when I hear about the crap that goes on there now I don't know whether to scream or cry.

I grew up in that time period too, although not on the south side. Many good, solid, working class Chicago neighborhoods from that time period are now urban hellholes. Whenever I return to Chicago for a visit, I make myself drive through some of them, so the reality of the situation sinks in. I really do miss the Chicago of my youth.

For those of you who didn't know Jermaine, your talk just shows how ignorant you really are. He may have mad some bad choices but no one deserves this fate. He was a good man trying to straighten out his life, he just made some bad choices. You cannot fault the state, or the person for what happen. There is legislation in place to prevent these kind of acts from happening, but if someone is hellbent on murder you cant stop them.
RIP. Jermain Powell. Friend, Companion, and Homie.

Well, as usual in the South Side, a certain "community" moved in and ruined it. Guess who?

A typical moronic justification for a violent ghetto savage written by one of his fellow savages. A true "Homie" indeed!

Wow! Mick, I also grew up in Englewood in the 50's and early 60's. I went to Visitation Catholic School. I have some great memories also. Maybe we knew each other back then

A fellow savage, Sir who are you to judge someone you don't know. I live in deerfield sir.The north shore, u know that extraordinarily rich area with some of the best high schools in the state. Where a Grade point average of 4.0 is not even close enough to get you to valedictorian. I am not a ghetto child sir, I grew up advantaged and never took it for granted. Unlike you, i kept an open mind and judged every as I myself would like them to judge me. So next time before you decide to comment you may want to attack someone less educated than yourself, because after your previous comment it is clear you are not on my intellectual level.
