I hear a lawsuit coming. The family will want to cash in on the unruly kid's death. Geeze, it was the parents who called the cops on the kid in the first place. And of course Jesse Jackson had to get his useless mug in front of the tv cameras.

You need to shoe some damn respect. They the parents called the cops because they were told to by a service that was suppose to help him. Calumet City Cops are known to be racist, so why you're being disrespectful to this family, Go eat shit and Die foolish Bastard. The Rev. Jessie Jackson to you scumbag. If it had been a black cop that killed a white kid they would have been condemmed already, So get off that racist shit and have a heart Oh I forgot scum racist don't have a heart. GO F.......... OFF CLOWN!

i guess from all ive heard, he should have been shot by a black cop. i think every time a black does something that warrants a shooting, whitey needs to call a black officer over to do the shooting. hope whitey has time!

So let me get this straight. A 5'10, 200 plus pound mentally unstable suspect, wielding a knife at police was shot and the police are wrong??? Sounds strange that the police are at fault.

Morons like you and Jesse don't earn respect from anybody. Bozos like you and jesse think every little thing is about race. Get Over It! This was a 5'10" 220 lb. kid coming after 2 cops with a knife! The cops had been called to that house 12 times in the last few months... 10 times just for him! Face it, if you stub your toe, your going to blame it on white people. You have that 'I'm a victim' mentality. Because you can't cut it on your own, you'll blame it on racism. YOU ARE THE RACIST!

Until all the facts are out it is hard to say what was the right move, could the officers handled another way? Maybe. Did they feel endangered since according to the paper the young boy already cut one officer? Maybe

Either way the person who wrote the article is making it worse due to poor word choice. We can not automatically say it was race motivated.

Either way let's respect the family and stop the race comments

I have followed this case in the local media outlets both tv and print although I have never heard of this writer or publication. This piece has a definite racial tone to it, further fanning the flames of racial division. There is going to be an independent investigation and all the facts will come out.

I want to appologize to you for the very mean comments that the other guy made towards you. It is nice to see autistic people sticking up for one of ther own. I know you must be upset, did you go to school with the other child?

Shame on the person you has the gull to make fun of a mentally challenged person. I have an autistic child. When they take a liking to something they foscus on it. He likes the Crestwood police car and probably wants to be a police officer some day when in reality his family knows he does not have the mental capacity to do the job.

To make fun of him and other autistic people is just darn right mean. My child and eveyone else with mental disabilities are people too. Leave them alone and pick on someone who can fight back.

Where did the author of the post you are replying to identify himself as black? Please tell me why you would call a black man racist. How do you know the author is black? You are way off base here.
