Great opportunity to execute the little terrorist punks! They're bad for America and bad for the region especially.

Their "mommas" should share the lethal-injection needles with their gangsta sons!!
Why did these mommas allow their sons to ride around town at 1:30 a.m.?
Why didn't their mommas know that they possessed weapons?

Because their momas must be stupid. The apple never falls far from the tree.

Kids do whatever they want now parents have no control. They need to bring back the paddle and more latchkey kids like in the 80's. We are seeing the affects of a generation left to raise itself without rules. Now our society can't control the monsters it created. Kids now can drop out of school, smoke weed, have a gun, no job and stay at home and eat up all the food. Some parents even let their child's boyfriend or girlfriend live in the house with them. I've seen it happen. It's unbelievable, but its the new norm.

There used to be just a concentration by Stateline Rd, now they are spreading behind the high school with their violence.

Well, Illinois says you can still keep a gun inside your home right? Wouldn't that be nice if a few citizens started protecting themselves and their neighborhoods?

Yes, it would be great if law obiding citizens cpuld carry a gun. Then we would have the same rights as the criminals. The only thing is the gangbangers have weapons superior to that of the police. I should know, since I once had an assault weapon fired between my neighbor's house and my building to across the street. Fortunatley, noone was hit, not that they would have cared.

Which rich white neighborhood do you think I am from? The idea that white people all have money and live in trouble free rich neighborhoods is a stereotype that is ignorant, offensive and largely outdated. Kevin Kirby's mom's career is not to be blamed for his choice of actions. A parent can do everything right and still have a child go totally astray. People, even teenagers have choices. You can either be part of the solution or part of the problem. While Calumet City can be a hard place to grow up, it is still not an excuse to act in this way. My mother was always at work and my father was estranged. We had no phone, no transporation, and nothing but used clothes for years. This is only becoming a ghetto because people are choosing to make it that way. There are people who are financially well off who have poverty mentality and people in poverty who are spiritually rich.

It really is "ignant" of you to say that. 97w 155th street......Dad was drunk & mostly out of work & mom was a secretary.....I loved to hit people, so I got into football & lifted weights. Stayed out of trouble, made my own path. Had other friends who did the same & they're ok.
Got any more stereotypes about me? Class of 73' 5 riots in 4 years. I had obstacles....But you know what? I "did the school thing" You know why? I wanted to "better myself" so don't give me this environment bullshit unless you were a follower who thinks that's actually an excuse for being in gangs. Gangbangers are followers too weak to reflect on their own internal strengths and talents.

We seem to be on the same page buddy. I just didn't like the "you white people" crack. Agreed, that it comes down to choices and like any other choices, the "Try productively to get out" IS the only strong choice. People who do not take this path ARE showing a weakness. There are way more followers than leaders. Many people don't make it out of ghetto life because they don't help each other get out, but instead "glorify" a "you gotta be like us" mentality. Again....Leadership and knowledge (because K.I.P. you know where you heard that) are the only things that can save people.....Whether it's 73' or 07'. I know it & you do to. In fact...it's alot easier to get out of ghettos now than before. There are now tons of programs, grants, career counselors, government centers, scholarships and endowments than ever before. It comes down to choices......weak or strong! Your address, by the way.....Are you sure it is 532 west or east 155th street?

It seems you all believed the media. The REAL story behind this has not been told. Go to the other Topix entiled "7 ARRESTED IN CAL CITY", and read all my comments. I'm too tired to educate all of you at this time. THE REAL STORY IS FAR FROM BEING TOLD.

the bond for the boys that killed this girl should be a million dollars. they think they are rich drug dealers then pay the bill like the big or the jezzy who eva these people are whom you look up to. You demons that killed this young girl need to be corrected and i mean corrected for good, and for the good of all man kind. you have no right to harm people to gain stripes or whateva what you need at this time is a good correcting that will bring you discipline for a long time. And I hope the mommas understand that this is what you will get and that a real manly correcting. god bless and the good people of hawii are with you righteous citizens, much discipline to the cowards and drug dealers

You think I have never been to Calumet City? Like I asked before which rich white suburb do you think I'm in? Now you think I don't know what a ghetto is? Just take one or two guesses, I bet you'll be wrong.
