St Sabina's work to keep
our children safe
"We're saying you will not shoot our children and get away with it. We will
put a bounty on your head," Pfleger said about the new billboards, which
offer a $5,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of anyone sought
for shooting or killing a child. (Jean Lachat/Sun-Times)

son Deontae Smith, was killed in Chicago in August 1,2009.
It was on the news and in the Sun
Times Newspaper, listed Englewood killing as Man
died at 19 and teen girl get shot at a block party. The shooting begin when a
girl was fighting another group of girls and she decided that she was going to
jump on the back of someone car the man that was in the car repeatedly ask her to
get off and she refused, so he called her out by her name. I was told that when
her brother heard it he decided that he wanted to pull the guy out his
car and fight him. When he start fighting the whole party start fighting, and
that's when one of the guys just open fire shooting his gun in the crowd. To my
regrets they still have not caught the person that shot him.
bothering to me is that when my son got killed he was at a
block party on 60th\61st and Green. Where the
block was extremely crowded with people on their porch and on the street. Two
people has been shot and no one has seen anything. I guess this is what they are
calling a code of silence, because no one is talking. What makes it even worse
that the two guys Kippie (Buck)Holiday and Kenny(KD)Doss, decided to have a block
party without a block party permit.
The beginning of September, I called
and I went into Alderman Joann Thompson, office which is located 5323 South
western, three times before she finally decided to talk to me and she verified
that they didn't have a permit for the block party. Then I asked her what happen
when a person(s) decides to do something like that? And her response
was they might receive a ticket or be fined, nothing major as she put it. She
also stated that she would look into a few things and make some calls and then
call me. But its been since September and that's when I left her office.
was also told that Chicago Department of Transportation issues the permits for
block parties to the alderman. I have also tried to contact them numerous times. I
left my name with the commissioner secretary who said her name was Sonya, she
said that she would have him to contact me. That has also been over a month and
I haven't heard from them either.
Since my son killing I would call the
police station every day after the funeral to try and find something out about
his case. The detectives, that was assigned to his case works midnight I was
told. So since I can't sleep anyway I just stays up to call them. I've only
spoke to them twice since my son has died and that was from me contacting them.
The first time I called I was told that they would only contact me if they have
an update. And I responded that I haven't heard from you guys at all. So a few
days later I took my nephew into the police station to make a statement about
what happen. And to also look at some pictures to see if he can identify
someone. So I was told they would give the statement to the detective working on
the case and have him look at it later and he'll contact me.
I waited a
couple days before I called again only to be told his partner was on vacation.
And if it was any updates that I would be called and that they were still
waiting on forensics, which would probably take 6 to 8 months. I was told that
they haven't had any change. He never mentioned anything about me bringing my
nephew in until I mentioned it. Which is making me to believe that they're not
going to work
on his case and now one has retire and the other one was ill they say now his
case been reassign to another detective a few weeks ago. I hope i'll see some
I know people are getting hurt and kids are getting killed every
day. I just feel my son case deserves to be worked on as well as others. I don't
want his case to become a lost one because it was a black on black crime and not
to mention a black kid killed in the Englewood community. I go out as much as I
could passing out flyers. We have a $5,000 reward offered for the arrest and
conviction of the killer of my son . Since I been passing out flyers I hear
bits and pieces of what have suppose to have
The last detective I spoke with told me to just call him, and
that he would help me as much as he could. But to remember that he is not
assigned to this case. I could keep going but I'll just stop at this. I would
like to know, could you help me find out what the city of Chicago does in the
event someone has a block party without a permit, and someone get killed? What
is the City of Chicago detective procedure or method when they are doing an
investigation? How should they contact the victim doing the case? I feel like I
am going at this all by myself. I get upset lately when I see cases on the news
being solved and it look like they forensic come back fast. But I'm glad at the
same time that they caught the person.
HELP FOR A DOMESTIC VIOLENCE VICTIM
Can you help make this Springfield man accountable for beating me up?
WATCH THE POWERFUL "YOU TUBE" VIDEO:
I am an Ohioan, battered in Illinois, hoping to enlist your support in
contacting the Sangamon County State's Attorney, John Schmidt, to question why
this man, Dean West, hasn't been made accountable for brutally beating me. I
have a private photo album with documents and photos and even a wav file of his
admitting to having done things to me while he was drunk (Ohio is a one party
consent to record phone calls state). There was no reasonable doubt. I did not
beat myself up. The link is:
and the password is: information1. Please spread the word and help beat the
deadline for the misdemeanor statute of limitations running out on September
17th. I think it was a felony but him being charged with a misdemeanor would at
least be something. Also, I have decided to go to the Ashtabula County Sheriff
to make a report of him initially breaking my ribs in Ohio that weekend so that
perhaps something can be done here in Ohio about the DV and the fraud aspect of
the matter. I can be reached at
email@example.com or 440-285-2648.

Murderer still at large
My name is Rosemary Erickson, and My brother, John, was murdered in
Decatur, Illinois, January 1, 2007. He was clearly murdered, as one
does not stab himself in an apartment hallway. Rodney Graves, who we all
know murdered John, by attempting to rob John, and then stabbing him to
graves was 18 at the time, and had many prior felonies. As a
matter of fact, Rodney
was supposed to be serving a sentence, when he
stabbed John. Rodney's trial was in October of 2007, and he was
The lawyer who represented my brother's case had never tried a
murder case; and my family didn't think he did justice. There were
several comments by the detectives and even the state's attorney
that Rodney was guilty. Rodney's record in Decatur is that he gets
slapped on the hand and is set free over and over. He only served
10 months for my brother's death. My parents are in their 80's and
yet to have closure in the murder of their 3rd child; as the rest
of us. If there is something more I can
do, let me know. I have
written to the governor and the justice system in Decatur; and no
response. There is a comment going around in Decatur. If you want
to commit a murder and get away with it, kill someone
