For those on here making conclusions and hateful comments about him, you need to take a step back!! You dont know the whole story the media is not 100% true; he is not found guilty and until then he remains innocent. You need to worry more about the young life thats going to waste and how it could've been prevented. Just like the victim Craig also has family who loves him and who are hurting by this...

no one knows whether he killed him or not!! you cant believe everything the news says, i know craig, you and everybody else on here going off something you seen on tv. this young man has kids and like i said family that care about him; im not saying he did or didnt do this crime because i dont know just like you dont but instead of people critizing and make rude comments that dont need to be said they need to think of ways to better the community so that things like this wont happen!

Free Craig u need to be the first one back on saying u were wrong about your little buddy and accept the fact that u know the truth but cant stomach your homeboy killed someone else for nothing other then wanting too make himself look hard in front of his hommies.
Wortheless piece of crap and they arrested cause he was so dumb he was probably driving that Red Chevy and so u knonw the media will back your people way before they back us white people so dont come on here about the meida cause i have known along time say since OJ that the media is in the black mans corner.
RIP Blake And FREE CRAIG maybe your hommie should have thought about being home with his kid instead of out being a thug in the streets and he wouldnt be in jail

I can't believe how many racist are on here. There have been plenty of other murders in Cahokia and plenty of other places. when a black person dies it never fails for the media to blow them off. Yet when its a white person the media and these corrupt police departments fight tooth and nail to find out who did it. when was the last time you looked at Nancy Grace and saw a story about a missing black child? not never because it wont happen. i am not racist but I will not sit here and let you all refer to my race as knucle dragging pavement apes,sub-human creatures,and a worthless piece of crap. We do not live in the slavery days anymore. like it or not we are hear to stay. Oh, and incase you haven't looked around YOUR PRESIDENT IS BLACK!!!! I'm just sayin, don't kill the messenger.

For one your president is not Black he is what you call mixed Aight Half Black Half White wow how smart you are.Second why does it always have to be about slavery.Who cares get over it that was along time ago. Third i see you all rockin your MLK teeshirts and Malcohm X ones also how about reading what they stood for I bet they are rolling in their graves about now along with Aberham Lincoln.Last the reason why it aint all over the news when a brotha gets murders is cuz it occurs daily in St Louis and the news has other things to report.Dont get it twisted.Just so you MLK stood for equal rights stop exploiting his dreams. So what did we learn today 1 Obama is half white 2Get over it 3 Something about MLK Just Saying dont kill the Messenger

What are you guys saying? The bottom line is someone was murder! I don't care what the situation was, this isn't acceptable. Some say the victim was buying drugs, and was in the wrong place at the wrong time, others say the murderer shot him, because he was trying to show off in front of his friends. Whatever the situation, HE DIDN'T DESERVE TO DIE! The laws here in this country are to lenient.
This wouldn't never happen in Japan! I pray for both families this is sooooooooooooo horrible!

Well FreeCraig if your friend is innocent I'm sure justice will prevail but if he isn't (and considering this is the major case sqaud making this arrest he probably isn't) Who will you blame next? It's been 3 days and it seems every witness that can verify his whereabouts at the time put him at the scene. Children at home and he's hanging on the corner? Did he lose his job after he was arrested? Did he have one to lose? It isn't the media's fault this got so much publication. Your friend just chose to murder someone on a slow news night for the Illinois Bureau. Why did they specifically target this proud father who was probably reading Bible passages to the blind when he was picked up? The answer is simple.... Thugs eat their own. More than likely it was one of your crew who ratted him out. The no snitch rule only applies when THAT person dosen't want to be snitched out. Dudes wanna be hard on a corner defending their faux honor when they have no job, no education and a bunch of kids that they can conceive but not man enough to truly be a father to. If you really want to be this guy's friend then if he is guilty you should take an active role in making sure his children don't follow the same path as he took.

And how many neighborhoods have you moved in and destroyed. Cahokia once was a nice and safe town to live in. What happened to East St. Louis, Washington Park, Brooklyn, and a few other towns.

He had kids and he was 17. I guess the taxpayers are paying for them and they will pay for his attorney also. Where are the parents when the kids are out walking the streets in a group like he was doing. It starts with teaching your children. And how could he hide a gun and his parents not know it.

Explain something - why is it that daily when a black is accused/arrested/killed because he was involved in committing a crime all other blacks get on here saying things like 'you don't know the whole story, you don't know this guy, he was a good guy made a bad decision, don't make racist comments, YET NOT ONE BLACK PERSON WILL GO AFTER THE PUNK THUGS THEMSELVES TO CORRECT THE CORRUPTION THAT RUNS RAMPANT IN YOUR RACE! YOU PREACH DON'T JUDGE, YET YOU SIT ON YOUR REAR END/BUTT AND DO NOTHING BUT MAKE EXCUSES FOR THE PIECES OF CRAP THAT ARE DOING THE CRIME! Why don't you people start taking care of your OWN and make them act the way they are supposed to act in life instead of being a crumb bumb all of their lives! What the hell good are they? What do they provide this world? Nothing but trouble, thats what!
the white girls who has all these half and half babies one day u will wake up and there will b no black r whites just mixed.

I live on St. Michael, and have lived in Cahokia most of my life. This story is so sad. My daughter who just turned 20 came home from work at 10:30 that same night. I don't want to believe this was a random act, because then I think it could have been her. Cahokia used to be a safe place to live. But I can't believe all the statements people put on these blogs. Would the crime have been any less sad if the person killed were a 19 year old black man. I don't think so. It would be the same. People want to focus on race, well, how about the white slumlords who own hundreds of properties in Cahokia, but live no where near here? They rent to people without doing background checks. They are allowed to rent properties that should never pass code inspections. They are making millions of dollars at our expense. Why do the politicians in this town let this happen??? I have always loved living here, and keep hoping things will get better. People can say what they want, but there are good people still living in Cahokia. My prayers go to the victims family.
