  • Tonia

    I hope you feel the same way if one your children ran away her mother is probaly worried sick and what if she did not run away what if she is found murdered or hurt in some way would that make any difference or are you just an indiviual who does not care as long as its not your family which are not exempt from pain and suffering oh selfish one . I f you ever get hurt I hope you remember the words big deal. have a wonderful day

    • Gina Pocan

      I agree with you Tonia. Running away that running away isn’t anything to sneeze at, and runaways get misguided a lot too by perverted adults. Its also a time where they aren’t thinking straight and end up on drugs, and hundred other sad things,
      Bitney, I find your lack of compassion for another human being loathing. As Tonia pointed out already we don’t know what happened to that young girl.. I hope to God she is ok. Her poor parents.

  • Leroy Goldberg

    If she did run away can you blame her? Why would she want to live on the South Side? No idea who her Daddy is, her Momma most likely a Crack Ho.

    So sad.

    • Gina Pocan

      You sure do make a lot of assumptions Leroy, I sure hope no one ever judges you in the same way you judge others, I have read many of your lame posts.

    • CommonSense

      Humboldt Park is not on the South Side, dear.

    • Tyreese

      I’m with you there, Leroy. So very sad.

  • Mohammed Awad

    Leroy is most likely one of those who molest young boys that is why it is so negative, it can’t find anyone to stuff it.

    • Leroy Goldberg

      English please, OSAMA!

    • Tyreese

      Mr. Awad, please spit the sh!t out of your mouth, so we can understand you.

    Don’t feed the Leroy troll. Just another borderline looking for drama.

  • Jamall

    She probably ran off with one of her boyfreinds. These young black girls will spread their legs at the drop of a hat. It happens all the time.

  • B

    Jamall is just another troll. Don’t feed it.

    • Tyreese

      Rather than childish name calling, try expressing your opinion. Try and be an adult, B.
