What a jag! Somebody gives you a job, and being from where he's from, finding employment is probably hard to come by, then he shows his appreciation by setting up a robbery in which somebody gets shot. I swear, you can't trust anybody from the South side!

I would not go so far as to say all of that but I do agree that this guy needs to be punished severly. He makes a bad name for inner city perspective employee's. All people are not like that and I guess this is why you have to screen and use your gut when you decide to hire someone.

What a shame. I pray they catch the other two perps and punish them all to the fullest extent. No pleas please.

Most people in the area that he lives in are law abiding citizens. You get any one that's 38 and needs there mother or anyone to help them find a low end job at a restaurant.....You pretty much know that you're dealing with a loser!

He [Jackson] knew the guy was going to bring a gun, but he didn't know he was going to fire it," Scheller said

What did he think the gun was going to be used for? It is this kind of nonsense that has brought us to where we are now: you cant go anywhere without some POS trying to rob you. And the authorities seem to bending over backwards to make excuses for the criminals.
