For the first time, I think I owe retired Gen. Barry McCaffrey an apology, at least as far as his role as role as the director of the Office of National Drug Control Policy is concerned. I admit that I did not like his "take no prisoners" approach to drug enforcement but cases like this one and countless others like it in the Chicago area have gone a long way to change my mind.
As a recovering alcoholic and drug addict (clean for 27 years), I have always had empathy for those who have been caught up in chemical dependency and other sociologically debilitating behaviors but anyone who is found beyond a doubt to have killed any of the four people probably deserves to pay with his and/or her life. This act was unspeakably cruel, ruthless and barbaric. I am ambivalent about the death penalty, largely because too many people have later been found INNOCENT of crimes for which they had been sentenced to die. This is why I believe that, if used, there should be irrefutable proof of guilt.
However, as in the controversy surrounding the life and death of Stanley "Tookie" Williams, there is still a need to meaningfully intervene in the lives of young males (Asian, black, Indian, white, whatever) before they grow up to commit heinous acts fueled by pent-up anger, mental illness or both.
I happen to believe that society is entiled to retribution for certain acts but not to the exclusion of true rehabilitation or prevention.
I hope that we can all sit down and reason together to effect meaningful change.
It is not necessary to reject the concept of harsh punishment for heinous crime in order to embrace the desire to prevent commission of the acts that require harsh punishment.

This is a really sad case. The people who did this to this family are cruel, heartless,and just plain evil! And the children????? Why they have nothing to do with anything. My heart goes out to both families. May God keep and comfort you. And to the people who did this may God let it way heavy on your conscience!
How Much

My question is how much did tax payers contribute
to the burial of these victims? We tax payers
pay for their existence and then the burial. Add to
that the cost of prosecuting the perps. It never
ends.

My heart goes out to the families of these young ladies and their sweet, sweet babies. When these killers are caught (and they will be!), I pray that for once in this lifetime that true justice will prevail. This is one incident that should take us back to the Old Testament - an eye for an eye...

Come let's get a real grip..I followed this story for quite some time. I agree with the landlord, that calls the police on his tennants absolutely nothing is ever done. Call it what you want, there a was reason Andreas' father didn't want Gina to move in. However Andrea was no angel either. She had to flee for her life just months prior to her death.Gina was involved check fraud scams.Ginas' baby daddy was involved in the Haughville Syndicate. Andrea definatley has a MUGSHOT on one of the article listed. Okay no one deserved to die, but these girls were NO STRANGERS to crime. I am so sorry they all had to go this way, however both girls PROFOUNDLY invited trouble into their lives all the facts seen and unseen point to it. STOP blaming the white man, these fools looked like Donte, Jasper, Zarumin and some other uneducated fool, none of which appeared hmmmm white!! Looking at the neighborhood this foolishness appears to be the norm in this city. I'LL be sure to NEVER visit this rat trap of a "community" Everyone is playin' dumb; these girls however "cute" were UGLY in their doings. Highside always leads to HOMOCIDE. Please believe, if a "Gina" and a "Andrea" lived in my neighborhood, I'd be calling the police as soon as I saw their door open. In short they actually saved the lives of others, because now these murders are off the streets. I don't think these mothers will be going to heaven either. Gina and Andrea were living FOUL, yea real foul. Zarumin was a known committed law abuser who OBVIOUSLY sniffed these girls out. Its a good thing the babies will have someone in heaven to take watach over them, cause their mommas surely didn't watch over them on earth. So very sad, Gina an obvious con woman. Andrea just didn't think they'd ever be gunned down. The killers were ravenous, and they didn't give a damn about the babies. Zarumins' mother was "apologizing" for her sons involvement. Funny how every one denied "Knowing" any of the gun men. Please if someone would have called the law on Gina and Andrea, the deceased would have at least would have lived a few months longer.

This case provides a strong argument for the death penalty.
1. Executions should be televised at least 3 days per week.
2. Extended stays on death row should be eliminated.
3. You have one year to appeal, then it's lights out.
4. We can even get a host like Howie Mandel and make a game show out of it.
nice wordplay
