    Jamaal is just another example of an out of control young black African. Lock him up and keep him there.

      Tyrell, I’m not sure why the fact that he is African American is important. I fairly certain statistically speaking Caucasians have a higher percentage of rape crimes, so what’s your point? Our youth in general is out of control this day and age from the bullying that occurs that makes kids feel they have no way out but killing themselves, to the rampant drug use that is taking place in all communities, to the drug dealers, and the gangs. Crime is crime and if effects the entire city. I will be so glad when the bigot’s of the world get off their damn pedestal and realize what’s truly important.

    To “Tired of Morons Who Post Irrelevant Comments”….EXCELLENT post.

  • Citizens of Cook

    What’s really important is not drugs or gangs. It’s young black men who grow up striving to be gangsters. Killing, robbing, raping, etc. Don’t blame anything but the little criminals who dream of busting caps from a young age!!
