ok i knew joey back a couple of years ago he was a really nice guy and for people to be saying such nasty things about him is disgusting by the way "oogie" if hoffman and schaumburg are ghettos then does that mean the boonies are the new barrington?

"Oogie" you must be an idiot. Schaumburg and Hoffman Estates are not "hoods." So that already lets me know you don't know a damn thing about this kid or the case. Did you meet and know him personally to KNOW he was a KNOWN coke dealer? obviously not if you think he was known "in the hoods" of Schaumburg and Hoffman. Go comment on something else, your just pissing people off.
You are a complete moron...ya must be friends with John Abel

You push poison to other kids, you brag about it, you pretend to be a bad guy, sooner or later, you piss off the wrong people. He obviously did just that, messed with the wrong people.

I'm a moron, huh? I live in Schaumburg. Trust me these aren't hoods. for your information I don't know or give a dam who john abel is. What the hell did that have anything to do with this u retard? i just happened to know him well enough to understand he was a real nice kid who had a whole life to live. Sorry I'm not trying to bash him and talk shit about him when there are people who take this seriously who really cared about him.

this was a buddy of mine and you guys are stupid he was a good kid. I think they definitely need to get rid of the section 8 this is bullshit!!!!
I think this is horrible and very scary coming from a mom who has teenage boys.People need to learn not to use guns to solve their problem, BUT section 8 has nothing to do with it. I have section 8 and if I didn't tell you you would never know. I keep my house up better than most people, plant flowers, paint and do thing most renters would not do. I take pride in what I have. Now, I don't bring trouble to the neighborhood nor do my children. I moved here so my children could get a better education and that just what they are doing. I do plan to be off section 8 within the next year and buy a house but that's only because I've worked hard and used the program for what is supossed to be used for. When my time comes to give it up I hope the next person will do the same, so don't hate on all people just the ones that do terrible things like kill.

This boy was up to no good!!! Found that out through one of my co workers..singlehardworkingmom. ..by making that dumb a ss statement...That's the reason why your single!!!
First of all I commented on the fact that he said probably a black man did it, it does not matter if he was a bad kid or not, my point was that race plays no factor on the person who killed him. No matter if he was a good kid or not he did not deserve to get killed, maybe if people learned how to solve problems without guns, we wouldn't have this problem, but I won't try to explain this to you because you obviously are ignorant just by the comment you made.

This blog is for those to comment on the young life that was taken tragically. Not for some political campaign to increase socialism within our society.

I personally did not know this young man, but a friend of mine was one of his teachers at Schaumburg high school last year. Whether he was a drug dealer or not, he was taken violently and senselessly way too soon. Honestly, it doesn't matter if the killer is green, blue, purple, black, or white. Violence is violence, no matter what color you are. There are Italian and Irish gangs that are just as violent and sadistic as Hispanic and Black gangs. People who are making the ignorant racist remarks should remember that those who live in glass houses should not throw stones.

for one you idiot, i knew joey really well, and he wasnt a "well known coke or drug dealer" maybe you should check who your sources are and shut your bigg as* mouth. regardless, this isnt the way to go. Nobody deserves that. he was a loving person, he loved his family soooooo much, his friends, his girlfriend. you are an ignorant as*hole if you keep talking like that. one word, karma. so when you die, ill be sure to talk some sh*t when youre gone too. Were talking about a 19 year old man shot dead by some people that odviously dint know him & didnt value life. so before you talk shit about this, just because you heard rumors, or saw it on the news. know what you're saying as*hole.

Section 8 can be a good thing if used correctly, everyone does not abuse the system. Speaking for myself, I would be highly upset if someone came in my area where I bought my house hanging out all times of day and night, pants down and underwear showing where they are staying for $50.00 a month and I'm black.

For every drug addicted person that he ever sold drugs to that may have died..He got what he was asking for!!!
THANK YOU! Do you people know how many lives are destroyed by drug dealers? Did this guy drive a nice car? Did he own expensive stuff? It was paid for by the MISERY of other people. This guy may have been nice to some extent, but a person who sells drugs has no regard for the lives or well-being of others. And he was going into law enforcement? One less crooked cop that would have been out on the streets. Thank god.
