Mom of the Year
- A 13-year-old girl and her mother have both been charged with first-degree murder in the fatal stabbing of a 15-year-old girl during a fight on the South Side over the weekend, according to police.
The girl is accused of stabbing DeKayla Dansberry, a popular track standout at Johnson College Prep, in the chest Saturday night, according to police. Her mother, Tamika Gayden, 35, provided the knife, police said.
- On Monday, Mr. Flora, now 27, was sentenced to 100 years in prison — 65 years for Endia [Martin]’s murder, plus 35 years for the attempted murder of the other girl. The authorities said the motivation for the shooting by Mr. Flora’s niece, who is awaiting trial for murder in juvenile court, was a dispute about a boy. Officials said the handgun used in the shooting had been illegally transferred and then falsely reported stolen before it ended up in Mr. Flora’s possession.
So Mom has about 100-years to look forward to. But what is it about adults providing juveniles with weapons to wreak havoc on the community? Maybe Mope-rah can answer? Or Phleger? Or Rahm? Or #blm?
