I knew these three brothers when they were very young.It saddens me so much to hear about this.I'm glad this didnt take anyones life.Most of all my heart goes out to there Mother,I can't even imagine the pain she is going threw at this time.Not only the worry of one of your childrens future but three.We raise our children showing them the right way and they also see wrong ways.In the end they choose the path they want to take,it's not the fault of the parents although no matter what they,are children our children and we will always love them and be there for them.My heart goes out to you and every one involved.My thoughts and pryers are with you "D".God Bless and stay strong..........

I dont know how you could love gang members who are ruthless savages. A bar fight is one thing, but stabbing a man who announces he is a police officer is just idiotic. It must be nice to know that you live in safe town 50 miles outside of Chicago, but I have a little girl of my own, and I worry every day about something like this happening to her. Not even God will save these men.

Why is it that Police Officers are considered special citizens when they are off duty. If a lawyer gets into a fight with someone, it's not written, an off duty Lawyer was... or an off duty teacherwas... Police offers are nothing more than people put in uniform to serve and protect. Which most of them do a piss poor job. When they are off duty,they are nothing but regular citizens. Giving them special treatment is why they feel they are better than the next citizen. They were at a bar not a church. How do we know what they,the "Off Duty Officers" say is what really happened?

I was there that night, i seen everything first hand. The media is just out to make people look bad. This so called police officer was found over three times the legal alcohal limit, in a public place with a gun. If he would have never pulled his gun out for no damn reason nothing would have ever happened. Also he was stabbed after he already shot a kid. Those kids shouldnt be on trial for attempted murder, that jag off cop should be.
