The Cook County Illinois, State's Attorney Office makes decisions on ALL cases, by first considering if the case involves a black or blacks. That's why you guys are confused about how such an injustice could happen. The killing could have been a convenient way to get rid of the deceased, for reasons not reported in the "news".

It's all to common that when something happens to an Afro-American society turns there heads. It's time for us to take charge of our own destiny and not depend on the law to make changes for us. We all know that it is not fair but lets do something about it. Every race of people will come together over anything and we cannot come together on anything, let's make a change and a difference. Let's stand for something finally and quit depending on everyone else. The law was not made for us because if it was justice would be served in this case and every case that has been against us.

I can't tell you how touched I was when the students of Julian walked out of school in protest of the violence that has taken the life of so many of our young men and women in Chicago. Anderson Cooper had a segment on the death of Blair. It's just so sad. I think the walk out is the beginning of positive change. It has to start in each neighborhood. The state and federal government need to step up and help. A young black man in Chicago has a 1% chance of being killed each year. A soldier in Iraq has a 0.05% chance of being killed each year. The streets of Chicago are a war zone.
