hey wow, it wasn't about protecting the neighborhood from what was moving in.
YOU moving in killed the neighborhood. White trash.
Sorry you- are wrong the people that have moved in is why every neighborhood: goes to shit, This was played over in many neighborhoods in Chicago, people don't want to be around your kind, the sad thing is you don't even see it, now towns like Stickney, Forest View, even, Riverside is all going to shit, I have respect for the Players, And the guy that got killed on 63pl in 1996, I remember him from around the neighborhood, he did not even act like he was even in a gang, the old school players didn't act like most most gang bangers do today, with the ghetto talk, and a baggy pants, you looked like that back then and you got a ass kicking, yes some gangs did protect neighborhoods from shit moving in

Taz is not the rule but the exception. There are many Players that are doing very well in Cicero and Chicago. I also knew Billy. I always remember Taz as being a nut, but after Billy went he just went crazy and didn't care anymore. I wouldn't call him trash though. Players are very different than most Black/Hispanic gangs in Chicago. They really took care of the neighborhood instead of trashing it.
well said

Are the layers still around? They havent been making any noise since Taz been locked up.
The 34th IPN are losing numbers as well, what a shame they held Hoyne Park for many years.

Drugs belonging to the Italian mob members were found in the bar. The limousine driver testified to the cops being drunk and go in to the car to get 4 handguns after a dispute with one of Berwyn p.d. officers son.. who has admitted on affidavit to him and the chief of polices sons involvement. My son Is innocent!!!!. Coca in found in the bar.. The bar was illegally open. Cops can not carry under the influence. When firing a gun admitting to drinking at a bar. It is police regulations to have drug an Alcohol test. Non taken.. no blood test nothing. MR CLIEN chicago old super intended when it really gets publicized about your round table meeting 2 hrs after the incident on a Sunday gets out u will loose your pension. You went there and made sure your detectives were not tested and over looked standard proceedure.. Do the right thing and fix your wrongs!! The real guys came forth. And the message your dept left on the bpd answering machine accidentally is now within reach.. before that and the ca.er phone from the girl who the whole thing g was over gets out 10 yrs of my son's life you took I hope the judge is considerate for you and your family.

The case against and the subsequent conviction of Jonas Haro has Lady Justice weeping. Free this man!

1: Why would two seasoned Chicago Police detectives follow a known gang member into an alleyway? They wouldn't. Who is that stupid? " Hey Officers can you come with me into the alley, I got something to show you!" Ok

2. Mr. Haro's parents testifyed that their son was at home sleeping in his bed at the time of the alleged shooting.

3. No weapon was found, no residue was found on Mr . Haros clothes, or skin...

4. There were no shell casings no bullets, nothing!

I can't believe any juror with half brain cell would vote to convict this poor guy.

What probably happened is two drunk Police Detectives tried to drag a man into the alley in order to beat and rob him. Man fights back, and escapes. Police are pissed and want to cover it up.

Gangbangers are terrorists and should be treated as such. My life was ruined by these morons. I couldn't attend high school, because these aholes would threaten me on the daily. Send in the drones.
