Crime will never go down as long as there are idiotic parents like this one. Why would you set your own son up for life in prison or the death penalty?
This is the very reason why MCS and SCS are both terrible school systems and teachers can't do anything with the children 'cause the parents are encourageing this type of behavior. She is not the only parent with a "PEA" brain. Lots and lots of parents just like her.
So therefore, teachers don't care. The instructional time is shorten due to distractions and disruptions. The teachers can't teach like this (those that want to). Most and I do mean most are just making a check and waiting on there retirement. The kids that want to learn has to just dill.
Concerned,
You are so right!!! The problem isn't just with blacks either!!! The pampered little punks who have everything handed to them can be just as disruptive and rebellious. Most of them are more mouth than anything else though. Teachers are intimidated from the word go by parents whose little angel isn't capable of doing anything wrong, negligent parents who couldn't care less, or parents who encourage violence as the answer to social problems. This a problem with both races.

How dangerous for a society to have such access to a forum such as this to actually be able to participate in modern day stoning of people with lives you know nothing of and so readily wanting and entertain the thought that what you heard on the news or read in the papers was what actually occurred. How easy was it to believe all the negative one sided publications as if corruption, deception, lies and malicious fifteen minutes of fame doesn't exist in our society. Did it ever occur to anyone of you that evidence was withheld, that lies were told just to get a quick closing of a case. That evidence was omitted and that corruption on the police dept part exist. Well i say this wake up because public opinion can reek havock on the life of some one in a situation you taken for fact when it all could very easily be fiction, by people who clearly don't have lives. There is so much you don't know and so many lies told to make the story intriging to you enough to engage in this conversation at all and nobody ask why? If you truly believe that the mother is such a criminal then "why" wasn't she charged. In time i think you may very well find that Crow don't go down well and that God willing public opinion will soon have no place in the judicial system highly predjudical.

Fact mother never made any statements, fact detective never put into report that victim actually was carrying a gun and where it was on his person when found, fact it was never told that the victim approached suspect because he knew him and knew he had threatned to shoot his mother and in his paranoia thought the young man was looking for him when he wasn't and went for his weapon after words were exchanged not knowing wrong move, everyone has the right to defend him/herself when eminate danger is preceived its called self defense. Fact the victim was under house arrest had been kicked out of city schools for a couple of years and was only 16 years of age. Fact suspect had never been in any kind of trouble not during entire school career up to and including til the time he graduated from high school. Fact suspect has good work record and a couple of years of college under his belt. Fact the concern you should have is that good kids who follow the rules and do what they suppose to do feel as though in order to live happy and productive lives have the need to carry a weapon to protect themselves from their own peers because every second someone is shot down like dogs not just in that city but cities around the world. Fact suspect never denied anything told exactly what happenend and a grand jury found it credible and reduced to second degree, fact suspect refuted the charge and plead to voluntary manslaughter. Fact victim was shot in back because after he went for his weapon he took off running when realized he wasn't the only one carrying. Unfortunately the rule of thumb didn't occur to him, don't pull it if you not going to use it, but in the suspects fear he reacted. Guilty of unlawful possession of a weapon. Fact the relationship between mother and son has always been one of sharing everyday events of the day,as should be to all parents and children no matter how old. Mother feel fault lies with her for raising a son over protectively and always reminding son of how dangereous the streets are even when you are doing the right thing. Fact mother never sent any photo graph to the son via text. Fact victim gang member and criminal doing breakins home invasions and vandalism throughout the community which he didn't even live. Fact victim not being monitored. And the list of facts go on and on and on, that you all no nothing of. I see the interest in the story only lasted the day it happened no one has an opinion almost 3 years later. Be careful what come out your mouth in this case what you type on these message boards because just those people lives have been forever changed so could yours. I would only hope that if someone knew that my child was out there running amuck that i would know about it for the police do, it is sad that you can't talk to parents of kids who do wrong because they are not much older than the children they are suppose to be raising. I say to you opinions are like ...holes everybody got one, but sometimes justice may better be served if and when you keep them to yourself afterall who asked you? By the way biggest lie of all, suspects mother never said and has never been robbed in entire life. Victim came to house rang doorbell and when suspects mother didn't answer began trying to breakin that is when she spoke and the 3 boys ran off, she only wanted to know who they were and where they lived and who the parents were. It maybe old school or even naive but most parents under forty with kids who has almost caught up with them in age won't know anything about that too young themselves. Think before you spit venum on people you don't know what goes around come around it happened to them it can happen to you.

Wow. Honestly sir or mam above me I want to genuinely and truly thank you from my heart for being the ONLY person correct in what actually happened on the worst day of my life. I am Madison Burkley the suspect in this case. You may never see this seeing as I am four years late responding,but I have so much respect for you for doing and recognizing what not ONR single person realized about me and my mother's situation. I served four years for involuntary manslaughter when in actuality I shouldn't have served a day. My name and my mother's name has obviously been slandered..my criminal record ruined me with any job I would like to obtain..I have court costs that'll never get paid off. And these people talk like they were standing there watching what happened! These people degrade my mom for no reason AT ALL..they label me a gang banging pistol toting punk when I'm not even affiliated. I learned alot about society from my own horrible experience and it has thoroughly changed me, but I feel for the better because never again will I be naive about my community , black OR white. There is nothing but what the news says that ignorant people believe in. But as for me never will I believe what I read or see fully on the news. They were the main ones adding and subtracting information in my case. Only reason I even took a conviction was because after two years, 19yrs old on a murder charge, I was scared and exhausted. But they don't tell y'all that tho huh. I hope none of u judgemental people ever experiences HALF of what I went thru in those first four years of my adulthood. I'm not even mad at anyone. All I want to do is THANK the person who posted anove me for caring enough to three years later tell the people his/her opinion which was solely based on facts and which I agree 100% on. I wish you were my lawyer. Thank you so much and may God bless everything you deal with in your life. You sir/mam, have truly warmed my heart..
