"Police said they believe Morgan had targeted at least one of the victims after they had taken money from him at a dice game."

Thats one good use of welfare. I bet not one of those individuals has a job or educated beyond the 5th grade. Where do they get the money to play dice and buy drugs?
I say let them kill each other off.

We've lived in South Holland since 1959 and our children as well as my husband attended the Catholic school in which the lifeless body of the victim laid. Never in all these years have we had the kind of violence our community has been experiencing in recent years. Almost all of the violence is black on black attacks. When we comment on the recent violence and express our wonderment as to why.... we're labeled as racists. I'm not...nor are our African American neighbors who left in inner city years ago to escape this sort of life style.......we're all just sick of the violence and crime being perpetrated in our neighborhood. Many of us own our homes outright and have built this community. The parents of these hoodlums need to step up and take responsibility for the children they have brought into this world instead of letting them run wild and make excuses when their caught. I'm sick to death of their mothers claiming "my baby is innocent...he's a good boy." Well lady "GOOD BOYS DON'T COMMIT CRIMES." Step up and mother your "GOOD BOY/"

This is a comment to the incompetent parents in Harvey, I really do agree with you, it's ashame that the streets are raising a large group of our children. The bottom line is that baby's are having baby's everyday, the mother of the baby's had baby's early and so did their Mom, so there we go it's a cycle of young kids that has no guidance and all they know to do is ignorance (this does not apply to all young mothers, because I've seen some in the struggle that are doing a fine job), but for the others that get with these no good dads and continue to have baby after baby with different men that don't stay around to take care of and teach there children respect and love for each other,then what we get is constant nonsense of crime especially black on black, it does not make any sense to even have a gun to get back at someone, what happen to the use if your fist when neccessary (and i'm not promoting that), I say it because man up or woman up without using a weapon, that's for cowards. We need to start having some LOVE in our hearts instead of HATE, HATE is for the devil and the devil does not mean well, it's always hope out here when you think it isn't, the main thing to do is to educate yourself you'll feel a lot better with knowledge then without it.

Both families are in my prayers.The family of the victims for their lost and i pray that the child that was shot is totally healed. The claytons because as a family they really didnt think this thing over they acred on emotions and without seeking God and i can say that i know they were raised beter than that because they are truly my family and i know that Aunt Rogena didnt raise her kids or grandkids and great grandkids like that. She was a god fearing woman who raised her family in church. So let us just pray for both of the families in this horrific incident

Let me preface this with, I'm a resident of South Holland. Why my screen name appears as Harvey and not South Holland I'm unclear.
This is for Stephanie. First, let me say that your grammar is also representative of the lack of your parents influence. If you were sent to school for an education you either didn't appreciate what the TAX PAYERS of Illinois made available to you through their hard work and what was deducted from their paychecks and property taxes. Nor did your parents sit down with you at night checking your homework because it would have been impossible to overlook your lack of knowledge of the English language. I guess maybe they were teaching you and your BROTHA how to shoot a gun and commit a crime. It's sad when a group of like people are looked at in a negative light by many because of those who chose not to conform to society. This is not to say that other races are without fault, but when I open the paper and watch the news at night the majority of crime is being perpetrated by and on the black community. Unless of course their speaking of Iraq. It makes my heart ache for each African American male born each day, as the chances of his making it to become a senior citizen is cut short by his own race. The total lack of morals and appreciation for the life that God has bestowed upon is inconceivable. I'll probably have to define the word inconceivable for you,"impossible to comprehend." As far as not personally knowing about the particulars of the incident....your dead wrong. I can only pray that someone intervenes in your life and helps you on the right path as an honorable and productive member of society. Bless You and the rest of Us.

(I live near South Holland. Hightstown NJ is my IP address.)

Good for you! Stand up for your town. It used to be beautiful--it has potential to nip this gangster BS in the bud and become beautiful again. Time for some spring cleaning, I'd say, and getting these 3 off the streets is an excellent start.

I will keep both families in my prayers. But praying is not going to take the guns out of these kids hands. Someone in the family needs to do that. I'll pray that someone in the family (families) steps up to the plate and rids the household(s) of firearms.

Nicely stated. I agree with you 100% that "The parents of these hoodlums need to step up and take responsibility for the children they have brought into this world instead of letting them run wild and make excuses when their caught....'GOOD BOYS DON'T COMMIT CRIMES.' Step up and mother your "GOOD BOY.'"

Peace.

Broken language is used all over the internet so before you address my so called "ignorant" use of language address someone else because i don't have time for it i'm a sophmore at whitney young recieveing straight A's don't tell me what my mother who has been the best mother a daughter could ever ask for is not doing what she needs to do for me. I would appriciate it if you would once again as i mentioned in the other blog if you would talk what you know and not about the stuff that is in the media thank you

Are you still in school? If so, stay there. If not, go back. Your future is $h!t without an education.

Poor Stephanie.....it seems that you'll carry on your family tradition and make excuses for criminal behavior. To think this was all over a petty amount of money taken at a dice game. Yes, let's plot together as a family to retaliate with guns and violence. I guess you families motto is "a family that kills together stays together". Well I guess they will...IN JAIL, where they belong.There's nothing you can say that will justify the criminal actions perpetrated by all involved. Now OUR hard earned tax dollars will be used to prosecute the WORTHLESS parties. As far as your comment that everyone uses broken language on the Internet is absurd. As far as your claim that you attend Whitney Young is interesting as you must be a resident of Chicago.Here's a copy from the admission requirements...

QUALIFICATIONS FOR ADMISSION
Age – Students must be 11 years old by September 1st of the next school year.
Scores – Students must score in at least the 70th percentile in the areas of Reading Comprehension and Total Mathematics on the 5th grade ISAT test (6th grade for current 7th graders).
Residency– Students must live in Chicago.
Grade – Students must currently be in Grade 6 or 7.
A note to parents of current 7th graders: While we welcome applications from qualified 7th graders, we cannot guarantee a position will be available for your child in 8th grade, even if he/she scores highest among the 7th graders taking the entrance test. Academic Center students enter Whitney Young with the intent of continuing their high school years here. As such, few students leave our program after 7th grade.

I'll forward a copy of this blog to the principle in the morning. It shouldn't be difficult to track down a Stephanie who's a sophomore and then determine which one would be you. Seeing as you live in Glenwood would be a violation of your admittance.I guess we can add violation of school admission requirements and lying to get what you want to your families laundry list.
Personally I think your making up that your a student there and that your a straight A student to compensate for your lack of self esteem.
