Her sister brings prison trash into the family and this is what happens. Prayers for all involved. This is the saddest thing I’ve read in years.
The nephew obviously knew who committed the murder and kidnapped him and would have been the only witness.
You’ll notice the tips started coming in only after there was a $100,000 reward offered.
Only the Chicago police can describe an attempted genocide as “domestic related”. Yeah, and this type of criminal coddling, “Kind and Just Parent” garbage Obama wants to bring to the country. I’m betting this guy was in juvie his entire life.
I don’t want to and quite frankly cannot speculate. I don’t know what kind of monster it takes to kill an innocent child like that.
What a horrible tragedy. All of it. I love Ms. Hudson and have been enchanted by her Cinderella success. Prayers and condolences to her and her remaining family.
My daughter read that this started over a dispute about a car. Balfour sold the little boys Mom's car without permission. The article said neighbor's said they'd been arguing for 2 weeks. It also said the little guy was shot multiple times. I hope they roast Balfour.
You know the whole “don’t snitch” ethic in the hood these days.......
Chicago’s always had a reputation for violence.
When Capone and Moran were shooting it out on the streets throughout the 20’s, even New York boss Lucky Luciano refused to go there.
Charlie Lucky said “Chicago is a godd*mn crazy place.”
I can understand being afraid, but there are ways to make a report without leaving your ID.
The society that is kind to the cruel is soon cruel to the kind.
Another case of denial disease.
Hudson tried and tried to get her mom to move from the dangerous streets of the area in which she lived.
“This is home” just wasn’t enough to keep them safe.
Jennifer could have bought them a nice house/home 50 miles away where it was much safer.
I also don’t get women who date/marry convicted felons.
Sad sad. Who shoots a child in the head? “””
Stepfathers and jealous boyfriends.
Anyone heard if any of the neighbors who said they heard gunshots between 8 and 9 AM called the cops to report it?”
No one. Sister found them about 2PM.
Neighbors said they didn’t call cops because “there are always gun shots around there”. Who lives like that and thinks they aren’t part of the problem?
Or could have put them in an expensive high rise on Lake Shore Drive, which is considerably closer and just as safe as exurbia.
Just think.....this is the city that the lord Obama spent twenty years and over $110 Million making into his Utopia, now he wants to bring this to all of America. Sweet.........”
438 murders in Chicago this year alone.
How many of our men in uniform have been killed in Iraq?
Nobama thinks Chicago is OK, and Iraq isn’t getting any help.
The man needs to go down to defeat on Nov 4.
I share your sentiments, but we both realize how this would be abused. There has to be a reasoned due process. Still, there are instances where youd have to hold me back from approving...”
I am hoping that “due process” takes place in the holding jail, where the other prisoners take care of this creep.
Youll notice the tips started coming in only after there was a $100,000 reward offered.”
Reward was hitched to “safe return”.
How could any person who is not functionally insane do this to an innocent child? The culprit is an example of why the the death penalty is justified. Indeed, part of me hopes that when he’s arrested, his fellow inmates spare the Hudson family the ordeal of a trial.
Dreadful and evil. RIP. Prayers for the family.
