I believe Robert Shaw orchestrated this incident for publicity reasons. I believe he was actually the assailant. No charges will be filed. I hope the citizens of Dolton will wake up and demand Robert Shaw be removed.

"Robert Shaw is Dolton's inspector general, a job meant to uncover corruption and given to Shaw by his brother."

....what a joke!

What is this article doing in the Tribune? I thought the Tribune only covered news from the north side and the north suburbs.

This article reads like an episode of "One Life to Live". How can a mayor assign a position that is designed to stop corruption to his twin brother? Who are these people? I wouldn't hire my brother to clean up the bathrooms.

Relax people, this is all politically motivated. The Shaw brothers have been in politics in Chicago since the early 1970's. I give them credit, they were the only ones who stood up to Daley and his machine, thats why they were chased out of Chicago. I wish the other aldermen in Chicago had there guts, they are all a bunch of Daley sellouts!!I am sure Sean Howard will be Dolton Mayor soon! I see that guy everywhere...

Yea, they were "suspicious" because they were passing petitions for an opposing political candidate.

What is Shaw doing stopping people anyways for "suspicion" -- he is not a police officer.

I would be upset too if non-police officers were stopping me.

1. I don't think lonnie lee owens got a fair trial in my opinon.
2. the owens family members SHOULD sue D.A. office
for knowing that dr.harlen(rumor)lied on the stand.
3. Others,( rumors) police and victims friends traspassing
on lonnies sister propertys taking things that were not theres and damaging cars.
4. a deal by the da could of saved lonnie owens 40 grand in legal fees that were paid by his father
which money lonnies father had put away for his grandkids college, in 15 to 20 years that could of been a couple hunderd thousand dollars. now the money for lonnies kids and his sisters kids is not there. that why i think the owens family should sue everyone. it only take less than 100 bucks to file. they should do it prosee a then get a lawyer later to get setelments. thats what i would tell them.

<quoted text> Not saying that he does'nt belong where he is at but he had a hard life because his mother had issues and he surported her, his brother in law is drunk, his wife( Heather) had issues of seeing and hearing things that were'nt there. He also had to help his father in law at his job. His mother would call him 10 times a day. if you saw the police phone logs of his calls he was on the phone all the time. Think about all the stess he was under. Heather also was telling people she had a brain tumor. The part to the trail that brothers me is all witnesses were unsaved people or people suffering with schizophrenia. if his lawyer looked into it closer he should of been able to find it. all you had to do was read the case file of divorce records of witnesses, which was never done. I see a jackpot for the owens family in legal suits against all witnesses. I would start by a wrongful death suit against Kara first. Even tho no chagres were file against her she can still be held libable for her part. this just MY opinion. I heard (hersay) that Tom Farris advised a member of lonnie family to sue and take advantage of a new law that was just passed.
