An ex-convict who thought he was being robbed gunned down a 12-year-old trick-or-treater, spraying nearly 30 rounds with an assault rifle from inside his home after hearing a knock on the door, police said Saturday. Quentin Patrick, 22, is accused of killing 12-year-old T.J. Darrisaw on Friday night. T.J.'s 9-year-old brother, Ahmadre Darrisaw, and their father, Freddie Grinnell, were injured but were released after being treated at a hospital.
Even in a neighborhood with rampant gang activity, where children are too often innocent victims of gunfire, what happened in South Chicago on Labor Day in 2008 was shocking and tragic.
Nequiel Fowler, excited that the next day she would start fourth grade, was struck and killed by an errant bullet as she bent over to tie the shoe of her blind 5-year-old sister.

"Oh he was just racist"
as opposed to.
"Oh he was just human..."
no matter what but rap music (the modern kind) is the reason the balck community behaves this way!!! its called conditioning
Its called parenting, and more people arnt doing it, thats why we have problems, RAP has nothing to do with it.
A symptom rather than a cause.
