First off all its ass....and as I stated I know the family well and when this crime was committed I was working a job(not living off welfare nor searching for a victim to turn in to get reward money) Like I said before...Sean is guilty for what he did but he does not deserve life without parole!!; and Gerald could go on and broadcast it as if he was being heroic but I know the truth!!! Its a shame how messed up the milwaukee judicial system is....and if u were going along with this case like I have then you would know that there was no weapon found!!! In the end...I feel that ur a bitter soul who must be unhappy with your own life, and upset with your teacher for not teaching you how to spell!!!(lol)...God is the only judge and what is done in the dark shall come to the light!(that was for you GERALD) I'll end this by signin off....I have to get ready for WORK!!!

@my choice I'm pretty sure the victim's family would be happy to trade their sons place for Seandells in a heartbeat. Mr. Hawkins isn't on trial here, he didn't commit the crime. Why do you feel life without parole is too much? Was the victim's life to little? You were working the day the crime was committed and I'm sure on your days off you weren't in any hurry to turn Sean in. Why don't we reverse the role here, what if it was your brother, sister, mother or father that was murdered? I'm pretty sure you would be singing a different tune. Why isn't it odd to see how blame is put on the judicial system? Did they send Sean to commit MURDER? What if Sharia Law had been handed down? Would you volunteer to take the place of the victim? I didn't think so. Sean is LUCKY that he gets to live, he will still be able to enjoy the air he breathes, will still enjoy the feeling of a full stomach, will still be able to enjoy what god has created UNFORTUNATELY Nathan Potter doesn't have that choice. And unfortunately for us, we will have to foot the bill for Sean. In the end nobody wins here but JUSTICE is served! Sean's family should be ashamed of themselves, instead of turning their anger towards the VICTIM's family they should turn it towards themselves and figure out where they went wrong, so no other family has to suffer the loss of a loved one.

The fundamental problem is that you sitting there blaming the system that convicted and sentenced Seandell instead of being critical of the system that led him to make the decision to shoot an innocent person and leave him to die. You are critical of the family member who did the right thing by calling authorities, but you don’t seem to care about the family members who helped Seandell flee the state. You complain about a missing murder weapon yet didn’t bother to notice that Seandell admitted being party to the crime to authorities on tape. You complain about another poster’s spelling when you barely have enough command of the English language to type of a reasonable sentence yourself (… isn’t part of the English language).

The fundamental problem is that you are sitting there complaining about everything instead of accepting that justice has been served.

But let’s pretend, for a second, that it wasn’t. Let’s pretend that all these allegations you and the family and the others that are part of this system are making are true. Would you do something about it? Would you put yourself though college and law school and become a lawyer to defend those accused? Would you become a politician and change the law? Would you become the best detective to insure no evidence is missing?

I think we both know what you would do. You’d sit there and bitch and moan. You’d commiserate with your friends and family about how horrible the system is. You’d sit there and watch the teenage girls raise their fatherless children like its ok. You’d teach your own children not to provide authorities with information to solve crimes. You’d sit there all proud that you have some lousy 3rd shift job like its some big accomplishment.

You’re not going to do a damn thing to prevent this sort of thing from happening again in the future. But you’ll sure as hell be there to make excuses when it does. Let God be the judge.

We as a friend of Gerald Hawkins want to express our own
words as to (Gerald Hawkins.
For thoes of you that want to throw sailt on Gerald Hawkins
he still done the right thing, by turning in his nephew
Seandell Jackson. Why should his son in Mississippi be
chargeg for somehting that he knew nothing about, it was
seandell Jackson own family that bought him a bus ticket
to flee, the state, not gerald Hawkins or his son Bryant.
Instead of throwwing sailt oh Gerald remeber Mother's and
Father's you both have sons's and daughter's out here in
the world, now if this had or would have happen to one of
your own would you still be mad at Geral Hawkins you would
have been thankful that he came forth and stood up.
So for the sake of it if you had bad thing to say about
Gerald Hawkins, first say to your self if something like
this ever happens to one of my own I hope ther's another
person out there like Gerald Hawkins and do the right
thing.
As to closing we don't think that Gerald done any thing
wrong just because a family member wants to involve his
income taxes to the world only a close member would have
made that comment its not fair and has no boundery at all
Gerald no matter what we all love love you here at
Froedtert.

I am proud of Mr. Hawkins! However, where are the black leaders of this community? Why aren't they standing up for Mr. Hawkins in public LOUD and CLEAR and why are they not ripping on the idiot Jackson and his loser family? Where is big mouth Holloway or Gwenn Moore or even Eugene Kane? All of them have something to say about how society in Milwaukee is all against our people but what about when an innocent person is MURDERED and the family taunts the victim's family in court? It doesn't matter the victim's race. He was killed in cold blooded murder! I don't believe that Holloway, Moore or Kane thought that Jackson or his family's behavior was appropriate but heck, let's only support rallies and protests and big marches when a loser husband who beats his wife gets beat up by cops instead (not saying that was appropriate either but why is this situation different - where is the outrage?) Where is the prayer vigil by people of ALL races for this innocent man who lost his life? Where is the support for the family left behind? Why are the black leaders of this community so afraid to get in people's faces to wipe out this "no snitch" rule? Why are people so afraid to tell these Jackson family members that they are WRONG? My heart and prayers go out to the Potter family.
Outstanding post, totally agree!

his family members should get together, and apologize to the victim family for the way they acted. i know the only way they could go about that is if they did it by way of a third party, maybe the judge. but it should be done.

In spite of the nasty coments, coming from Sean Jackson family
against the man whom turn in his own nephew for the murder of
Nathan Pottrt should be known as a winner in the city of
mIlwaukee.
I know Mr. Hawkins and both of his son, Bryant and Dkota what
his family fail to relize is would they still be threating Sean uncle, if the shoe was on the other foot, no they wuld have
have turn his sons in with the quickness.
Now they wants to send bad messages againt him (Gerald) no matter
what we at Children Hospital is on your side and we beleive that
you did the right thing.

A bit too rough? What in the hell is wrong with you? Do you think "Mr Jackson" was a wee bit too rough on that Potter kid? Personally, I feel that scumbag should've gotten his life taken. I don't know of you good folks in Wisconsin have the death penalty, but in my book, Jackson qualities. Often I see bleeding hearts more concerned about the "rights" of criminals rather than those of the victims. Why be concerned about whether the criminals are comfy and ok? I feel Jackson should've been tasered at the minimum. These creatures consider the public as prey. Should I be worried if the lion chipped a tooth as he tried to bite my head off? Don't think so.
Unfortunately, we haven't heard the last from the Jackson clan. Just look at the behavior/attitude of the family, they blame the Potter family for their boy's having to do a life sentence. Totally self-centered people, they ignore any accountability for their behavior, and then blame their victims for the consequences of their actions. These are the moral standards they instill in their children and I don't think they only infected poor little old Seandell. For me, the real frightening aspect of these type of creatures is one scary fact, they breed. That's what keeps me up at night, as I write this, THEY ARE BREEDING!!!

He got what he deserved moron. Too bad WI does not have the death penalty? Furthermore, you illiterate scum---it is to, NOT "too" in the context you used it. THIS is what happens when you drop out of school in the 9th grade to have multiple illegitimate welfare babies AND baby daddies. Tell you POS "cousin" not to drop the soap.

P.S. Illiterate Cousin, it is you're not your. Go back to school and quit breeding your nasty little bastard welfare monkeys. And to Sean's uncle, I hope you spent every last penny of that reward money on YOU and ONLY YOU!!!!!!!!! God bless you sir.

You are right, God is the judge, I believe the Bible says a little thing like Thou Shalt Not Kill, I think it's even a Commandment of some sort... When Seandell finally dies after getting Big Bubba's meat rod for so long it makes a nice track for Satan's to follow. Last I checked God want very keen on murderers
