How sad, but that life when you are a gangbanger. They don't fight like men anymore,they just shoot each other up.

WAKE UP Naperville! Gangs! Yes there are gangs in Naperville. As a school district employee we are told there are at least 6 known gangs at Naperville North High School alone. Get your heads out of the sand. Look around! with nearly 200 sworn officers what do you think is going on?

Has nothing to do with Bush! I agree with ICE, now that Daley has managed to knock down all the CHA homes and make his city beautiful we are all stuck in the mud. The nice suburbs where people could once go and raise a family are quickly deteriorating. Thank you so much for section 8 and mayor Daley!

This is what happens when too many Yuppie kids have too much time and too much money and start spending it on drugs. Some local kid, maybe a kid that is a bit discriminated against because he's Latino in a lilly white anal retentive neighborhood, tries to earn friends by being the go between. A likely scenario is that a couple gang bangers from Aurora came by his condo to bring the goods that he might have used to make friends, and the deal went wrong. He probably tried to drive himself to Edwards hospitol and didn't make it, or was being chased.

I live a half mile from where he was found, and I'm you bet I'm voting Obama by the way. It's not a black or latino problem, it's a society problem, which Obama no doubt knows more about and seems to be much more inspired to change than Clinton or McCane. It's about one group with too much money and too little to do, another group rejected by society trying to gain respect and get by the only way they know how, and a kid stuck in the middle.

It's also not a gun control problem. With a couple gangbangers on foot a half mile away, I'm glad I'm armed. The gang bangers will have guns regardless of the rules, why make the good guys defenseless? Trust me, the fact that there are many armed law abiding citizens in the houses around here is one reason you don't see more of this.

You hang with the wrong people, you're at risk, I don't care where you live.

If your voting for Obama I hope you don't have a semi-automatic, he thinks all semi-auto's should be banned.

Ban semi-automatics, and more possession restrictions
Principles that Obama supports on gun issues:
Ban the sale or transfer of all forms of semi-automatic weapons.
Increase state restrictions on the purchase and possession of firearms.
Require manufacturers to provide child-safety locks with firearms.

For those of you that knew nothing about John need to keep your damn mouths closed. I knew John we went to the same highschool and even after graduating we hung out. John was far from a gangbanger and he was a good guy never looking for trouble. He had a lot of things going on in his life that nobody could or even took the time out to understand. So please out of respect if you dont know shit then dont talk shit period end of story.

Dearest "Friend"...

I lived accross the street from John. I saw the commings and goings. Think of this senario... Car pulls into the drive with 2 young people. One stays in the running car, while the other goes into John's door for between 5 and 10 minutes, returns to the car and they drive off. 15 minutes later, 2 more come in a car...one goes in, one stays out... That could happen 5 to 7 times in one afternoon.

I also saw the Naperville Police use their SWAT team at a dawn raid. I am not joking...after several hours of surveilance of a couple units of Police...one officer who I attended school with, the brought in the "beast" and just like the movies guys jump out with big guns and go to John's He was taken away in a squad after... Not a typical process for a bag of weed... He has a nice slick lawyer but his rap sheet is long--maybe just not convicted, but as a witness I say guilty. I am sorry he was fatally wounded and the killers are roaming free. Nobody deserves that....John deserved time behind bars instead.

i knew john and he wasn't any of that shit that half you dumb fuks think. all of make up your own assumptions as to why or how come? you don't know shit he was a good buddy always straight and up front he never acted like he was bigger than any body and no matter what the cops or his neighbors say all of you have missed the point. he was in his home when they came to take him. all of you act like, cause he may have lived a diff. life than some of you naperville cowards he got what he had comin to him. anybody can show up at your door too kikin in your shit and wanting to take your shit. how you choose to act is up to you see my friend john was lion at heart and i know he's up in heaven but he didn't go out like a coward i know that he gave it all he had and fought but unfortunately god had other plans and it was his time to go. so r.i.p my friend. and as to his takers pray the cops get you first bitches we wont grant you the same pass they will.

Killarik,

Physically, John did nothing to harm any of us around him. But I, like most of his neighbors, had a vested interest in the safety and condition of our neighborhood. John was on a free ride from his parents so he wouldn't have given 2 shits about property value, and clearly didn't. For several months his garage door was all smashed up from tweaked friends of his who were angry that he wasn't home and he had a smashed window next to his front door FOR YEARS, and the company he kept didn't care either. Dropping trash all over and parking anywhere and speeding around with no caution for the childern and families who had worked hard to own a home and had a job to pay for it. John never had a "Job" Even when he was not "selling" from his house, because he was under too much of a watchful eye, his parents or sister would come and give him money. So what did he do? Nothing but drag a nice community down to the drain he was circling...

your a real human being aren't you neihbor so your price on my friends head is beat garage doors,junk on your sidewalks and the property value in your community. wow how little you value life when you die make sure you bring your nice community and your new garage doors up to god and tell him you deserve to be in heaven cause you kept your streets clean. I'm sure you've lived your life in an exemplary way.

Moron, I mean Killarik. I never said that property value was more important than the lives of any human being.

I am just suggesting that your friend John was not a saint. I firmly believe he was dealing in drugs, was hanging out with the wrong crowd, and he deserved to be in JAIL...not lose his life.

His former classmates and even his family may be blind to all that he was caught up in. It is typical to not want to accept how deeply in trouble somebody can be. I feel for their loss.

But there is a good chance, because of the lifestyle John led, he was involved in some of the bad things that people are assuming.

I think a lot of people are lucky that there was not further collateral damage from this event. There are families with very young childred all around that Windridge community and John and his lifestyle were not considerate of that.
