You detest me and my friends. All of my friends are Americans and do not have any gang affiliation. So, sir, why is it you hate Americans?

"I appreciate that," responded King before standing up and blowing a kiss to his mother and other relatives as he was led from the courtroom."

Correction, you and your friends are bangers and drugdealers which is paramount to domestic terrorism. So WHO'S the real American again?? You and your kind never have valid arguments or even simple points for that matter. What..you were raised in a poor neighborhood? Not enough hugs as a kid?
Whats you point...oh excuse me.. new excuse?
I was raised and live in an affluent suburb and have NO GANG affiliation. Your post is further proof that your prejudice and intolerance is a problem tearing apart the moral fabric of America.

I was at the trial and I listened to everything that was said by both sides. King is a very intelligent man, he is NOT some dumb gang-banging violent monster. He has worked with cease-fire while he was out on the streets and there are recordings (from guajardo) where King has told the Latin Kings to avoid initiating violence in the streets. Actually read some stuff that he says instead of listening to some two-bit racist reporter who just wants to slam someone. The streets will probably be more violent without King around.

[email protected] who feel gangs are the major issue when its not even the main factor... Drugs = are the problem and where there is drugs there will be dealers/fiends/gangs/violence. .. Since America can't stop/dent the drug flow nor the production of it this is what happens...

Why should we continue to give gangs a chance to influence our kids? This idea is repugnant and lacks sense. We need to use positive reinforcement for influence upon our children. We CANNOT give gangs any chance, as you suggest.

Just because their are rampant amounts of drugs in any neighborhood DOES NOT mean that the African American community has to be involved with it in ANY way! I think blaming the government is another way of avoiding the more serious issue of personal/civic responsibility.
Of course Good Ol US OF A is innocent and honestly have no blame in the fact there's so much drug coming into this country causing thousands of problems all across the country.... And its not just the African Community what are you narrow minded racist? White people sell/deal/buy as well as any other race in this country

Okay I read your comment wrong... Still doesn't change the fact where there is drugs there will be gangs/thugs to profit off of it... It's real simple no matter what you say next it won't change the fact drugs and gangs are here to stay.

Make the gang leader serve his 20 years in downstate Tams Super-Max prison. That way he won't be able to run and monitor the gang activities, which he will surely do if he is sent to any other prison in Illinois.

As long as King Daley hire all the surburbian white boys for construction jobs, and let the Irish Mobsters to allow the drop off of drugs from Mexico, Columbia and Afghanastan into Chicago's black and hispanic neighborhoods along with guns, then, Daley should get 20 years right along with the Latin King-ster; and, Daley and his minions and CEO Construction firm guys should pay all the victims and survivors in these "hoods" for all the crime that the city has let grow into a epidemic because it is on Black on Black and Hispanic on Hispanic killings. Good thing God is a EOE, b/c to let this evil go on as time goes by the same evil will befall the white man. The economy is so bad and will remain so b/c of One World Order, and the Cheap Labor Force now is Global. In order to live above your means or decent you are going to be forced to be a gangster..in another few years white on white drive-by's. Laugh now, but it is coming. The crack, meth, heroin and "banger's" selling it on your street corners is coming-just ask your crooked cops.
