Such a Nice Boy
- A professional boxer who made headlines five years ago when he was acquitted of murder has been arrested in connection with a beating over the Fourth of July weekend.
Semajay Thomas, 22, was charged with battery and mob action after police say he punched a 22-year-old man in the mouth, knocking out some of his teeth, and also hit a 55-year-old man. He was ordered held in lieu of $350,000 bail July 7.
- Thomas was 17 when he was found not guilty of killing a Texas man who was found beaten to death in 2009 near Thomas' home in the 700 block of North Throop Street in Chicago.
Members of the Satan Disciples gang reportedly told authorities that Thomas, already known as a boxer, had killed the man.
Gee, suspected of beating a man to death, so the defense will be the police profiled a boxer. And a very nice picture posted by the Tribune with the article with all his gang tattoos on full display, especially the 19-4 (s/d in the alphabet...spanish disciples). Way to advertise for the gang there Trib.
