Murder "Touches" Family?

  • Murder has touched the Chicago Heights family of Demetrice Staten twice in the last month.

    One of her sons stands accused of killing a woman in December after a nightclub argument. Another son awaits burial, gunned down Friday by an unknown assailant.

    Such grim fates are not unusual in the family's tough neighborhood, Staten said, a fact that has done nothing to lessen her grief. She is now turning to her other children, hoping to keep them safe from the crime and violence that overtook her sons.
If your son murders someone, that isn't murder "touching" your family. Your piece of garbage son has inflicted grievous harm on someone else's family, causing them pain and suffering.

Of course, "mother of the year" doesn't quite see it that way:
  • It was a hard blow for Staten, 41. Jeffery is the second oldest of her 10 children, and though he had gotten into his share of trouble, she said, he had never been accused of anything like murder.

    Staten expressed hope that the accusation wouldn't hold up: Witnesses told her that other people had been shooting at her son when Campbell was killed, she said.
And her other son who got killed?
  • Staten said her son was not in a gang, but she acknowledged that some of the people he socialized with were part of "the wrong crowd."
Ten kids at age 41, one headed to prison after murdering a woman over a nightclub dance, one dead after hanging with the "wrong crowd" and mom begging for money to bury him. This is what passes for journalism?

Any copper who is a liberal should seek help. Any asshole that makes excuses for people like this as to why they are like they are should move into the neighborhood if they sympathize so much. But its the folks on the north shore and people who are blind to reality that defend the last person they would ever want for a neighbor.
Sickening what we as a country allow.

WOW!

The best script writers in Hollywood would sprain a gluteal muscle trying to conjure up a similar sob story of fuckery, willful ignorance and the intentional choosing to live a "throw-away lifestyle."

We note with amusement that the hall monitors at breaking (wind) news accidentally intentionally forgot to enable the comments section.

Can't have the yellow-pinkies and straight democratic voters getting their noses out of joint.

Can't have the few real taxpayers expressing displeasure in their hard earned treasure being spent to prop up a section of the population that contributes nothing but death, destruction, ill will, nihilism and avid avoidance of any responsibility or acceptance of consequence for unlawful behavior.

"Everybody else's fault but mine cuz I'm a catered to constituent."

Elected officialdom in Illinois are as big a collection of cowards and craven wretches ever witnessed by human eyes.

We have a cure for the state budget crisis...


1. Eliminate LINK and all the other sops for the catered to constituents!

(The tax payer should be the ones getting their asses kissed instead of kicked by Illinois and Chicago pols.)

2. Pass concealed carry because the former LINK recipients are going to go after the tax paying citizen with a vengeance.

3. Reconfigure the Use of Force Model to become more in line with ILCS in regard to Forcible Felonies because the former LINK recipients will act out their rage at being kicked off the government tit by taking working people's shit and targeting Police stopping them from taking working people's shit.

4. Castle Doctrine!

5. Allowing the tax paying citizen full right to stand, fight and defend his person and property instead of a de facto duty to retreat just because the catered to constituents are going to be "angry" about the sweet milk of government hand outs drying up for them.

6. Government surpluses being returned to the tax payers, not the non-contributing, system gaming mutts.

We are not sympathetic to this so called family's plight.

They made their choices...

Why should the hard weorking tax payer be made to pay for multiple generations of poor choices?

Sorry chump, most of our government tax dollars goes straight to Corporate Communists. You know, the type of "capitalists" who keep the profits but share the losses.

I am an avid believer in the free market system. But most of our tax dollars goes to Corporate Crony Capitalism and to government waste to friends and beneficiaries of politicians and then it goes people like this woman.

This passes for journalism because the politicians and judges engage in the same twisted and torturous logic when it comes to people who have no respect for themselves or anyone else. Breeders like this woman are given every incentive to keep calfing. Their offspring are provided with food, shelter clothing, programs, schooling (not education), and free medical services from cradle to grave. Then, when the miscreants commit crimes, the liberal progressive democrooks rub their hands together in worry over how Pookie is disadvantaged and should be given a break due to his tough upbringing. This liberal lie has been foisted on the republic for 60years.
It is time for the productive people to revolt and say that our hard earned dollars will no longer be confiscated by the taxing authorities to support the underclass that diminishes our civilization.

The way the story is written, you would think that precious Jeffrey was minding his own business when the Grim Reaper appeared and forced him to murder.

It is amusing to watch the liberal press contort itself to protect the criminals, attempting to absolve them of wrong-doing.

This is what happens when liberal/socialists are in control of the education system, government, and press.

I Suspect This "Family" was, and is, heavily subsidized by the many different government welfare systems.
The way many liberals justify this type of activity is that ever once in a while someone, in these situations,someone, stumbles out, and actually makes themselves a productive member of society.
Have you ever heard the theory that if you took an infinite amount of monkeys, and gave them a infinite amount of typewriters, and gave them an infinite amount of time, they would type all the great manuscripts ever written ?

In Illinois their is no duty to retreat. This is one of the laws the state actually got right.Also in a justifiable use of force, you are immune from liability. In other words some jagoff breaks into your house in a "riotous or tumultuous fashion"(thats why you always keep your doors locked, and your window screens down) you got a green light.

And may I be one of the first to suggest that the death of her little mongrel could merely be a retaliation for her little bruiser locked up killing the woman after the night club dispute?
Just speculating but winding up dead in a snow bank is kind of like bang asshole, this is for you brotha killing Tamika or whatever her name was last week. By the way, it matters little if these people are black or white to me. Trash is trash. Our country is indeed turning into a deplorable place to live. You now have to carve out some little place of peace and tranquillity to escape it all. And that little place is becoming smaller and smaller every year.

The Tribune on every story it runs on the internet reserves the right to block individual comments online based on racist and/or inappropriate content.

Unfortunately, similar stories on this topic have resulted in a flood of such comments, so the editors decided to shut it down entirely.

Yes, you're correct. There is no duty to retreat within the domecile. We were pointing at the working man being able to go about his business unimpeded while on the public way.

That is also why we made note of de facto (versus de jure) because sure as shit when Mr./Mrs. Citizen ka-booms a were-mutt, the yellow-pinky liberal, criminal cuddling local, state and federal judicial systems and the sworn officers therein will make much hay as to why Mr./Mrs. Citizen opted for prejudicial and vigorous self preservation.

"Mr./Mrs. Citizen! Why did you choose to stand and fight instead of adopting the prescribed liberal victimology mindset of assuming a subservient posture in the face of bodily harm and possible death?"

The craven, anal-whore media will run every Pravda-esque, slanted, biased, semantically twisted, bereft of common sense angle to the above scenario as is common practice when a non-contributing were-mutt gets their coat groomed with terminal effect by someone trying very hard to mind their business.

It's just a saying that is too often repeated which is why I repeated it. My own peculiar form of satire.

Cops, as a group, have generally been conservative in politics and extremely big hearted, generous and compassionate in nature. Some of the kindest and most decent people I ever met have been fellow cops; also some of the toughest and most blunt.

Knowing the difference when to be one or the other is the wisdom that comes over time.
