You are right, I think there is a serial killer. They should start searching your home. Because I'm sure a KKK member is living at your home. Your comment shows your intelligence. Look at what's going on in Winthrop Harbor, redneck. You probably was involved in that too.

If Blacks bathed, not more often,but at all, maybe they'd learn how to swim. Kevin probably drowned trying to wash the Black off of himself.
He knew that he'd never amount to anything unless he was White. Being on welfare, food stamps and a jail cell is all he had to look forward to. Just like you Jamall.

It's so said that a forum to try to keep us informed and communicated turns into ignorant racist spouting hate. So far I am only finding 2 bodies that have been found in Zion. seemingly unrelated. Its nice to know that so many are attempting to communicate in the forum but maybe a few of you need to spend more time educating yourselves. As a interacial child raised in Zion in for 20 years I moved to Wisconsin because of the ignorant uneducated people like you that are more concerned with dehuminizing your neighbors instead of working together to make sure you and your children have a safe and healthy place to live.

Thats strange coming from a white person. If anyone should not talk about bathing, it's white people. they smell like wet dogs, really.
And to talk about a black person never amounting to anything isnt your place either. Whites have small brains and always end up with retarded, autistic, or down syndrome children. If not that, their children end up psychos who end up in mental institutions or prison. A very weak people. everything is just handed to them and if they have to actually work for anything they complain, whine and/or commit suicide.
this is what many people see of whites, so i wouldnt be saying anything about another race if i were you.

If you paid attention in grammar school instead of trying to get laid, you'd have amounted to something other than a welfare sucking worthlessni&&er. I had to decide whether or not to hire a black person in my company or pay a federal fine today. I presented the issue to the board. They decided to hire a White person and train him and pay the fine. Too many of those leaches in Lake County. This is how corporate America thinks now-a-days.
Thanks for making the decision easy, Obama yo mama.

Look what crawled out of the trailer park.I wouldn't call what you and Bubba's positions consist of down at the "Hoot N Holler" corporate America material.Let me guess......you will respond to this,just as soon as you get done cruising the kiddy porn sites,because as you know all white men are pedophiles. Or maybe your out refilling 15 of the 50 "Happy Pill" prescriptions the good doctor prescribed for your wife,so that she doesn't do anything foolish like.......fake her own kidnapping....hire someone to kill your redneck ass.....or drown all the children....and speaking of children,it's such a shame that people like you are even allowed to raise children.I personally think that the authorities should go through every trailer park,and do a raid..Well I have said what I have had to say....:You and Bubba should really get back to the "Hoot N Holler" that meth can't make itself.....and go easy on your sister...(I know she's your wife now) she has had a long day.

I understand that this is a forum of free speech and everyone is entitled to their opinion. I just need to put some facts out here about my nephew: He was 18 years of age, on his way to graduate this year and enlist into the marines, to serve and protect this Great Country we all call home. He was a son, brother, uncle, nephew, grandchild, most of all he is a child of God, I wasn't going to comment, but i felt I had to. All of this racism has simply become ridiculous. Does it really matter what race a killer is? At the end of the day that person is going to have to come to grips and reality of what he's done. None of us are qualified to pass judgement on nor cast stones at anyone. My nephew death nor the death of anyone should be used to promote racism, be it verbal emotionally or physically. I hope every one of you all have a blessed day, and remember to keep your eyes on the prize, prize being an eternal life.

My heartfelt condolences to you and your family on the loss of Kevin. This is a tragedy that has happened to this young man and his family. I think it is horrible that all this racist talk is going on when we should be thinking of how Kevin (and all the other kids in this country) suffered and died and now how his family has to pick up the pieces and go on without him in their lives. Zion is a town of many races, many mixed - just like the REST of the WORLD, and I've got news for those of you who think you are "all white" ... trace your family, I can guarantee that there are many mixed races and differnt nationalities in your family tree that are not "all white". No one is "pure white" in this world anymore. The world is diverse now and that is just how it's going to be from now on. So stop making his tragic death into something that it's not.
