You know what's makes me mad is this was a young girl ?! Who were the jerks giving money to the pimp so they could do whatever with her! I know they had mothers , sisters maybe a daughter as we'll. These men have No Hearts , No Souls. My prayers are for this Young Girl & May she Heal . Glad she safe now

This is a very sad story. At least her nightmare has come to an end. And although she will never forget it, and may never get over it, maybe she can try to move on and lead a purposeful life.

A judge may send this Tea Party type “youth” to boot camp for compassionate rehabilitation, like happened to the “teen” killer in Cornell Park: he had been convicted of carrying a weapon illegally, a felony according to the law, and the judge sent him to boot camp for compassionate rehabilitation instead of several years in prison. Result? He came out and shot 13 people. Same thing with the “youth” killer of Pendleton: he was a felon for arm possession and again was told not to do naughty things and sent to rehab camp. Result? He came out and killed. Politicians and do gooders keep passing laws which are not implemented against the “youth.” So more laws are passed and they are not implemented again. The "youth" are sent to boot camp for compassionate rehab or for a short time to prison and they come out and kill. And the “youth” gangs are not broken up by the authorities. But more laws against law abiding citizens are passed, which makes the do gooders feel good no matter how ineffective the do gooders are about stopping the bad guys. And so on and on. It is easier to prostitute a 14 year old runaway or mug someone on the street rather than do like most of the illegal Mexican immigrants do (who have no access to welfare): get a job picking fruit or taking care of grounds, or roofing, or anything honest rather than being on the dole (which illegals cannot get) or mugging people or prostituting others. Look how the honest Pakistani immigrants murdered in Evanston set up their own little business and were productive citizens. Oh no, honest work pays too little: better mug, or prostitute others.

Clearly the charges against this young man are reprehensible but let's not assume his guilt or innocence until he that is proven in a court of law. Why do we always assume that the police and media reports are the final word on someones guilt. There may be far more to this story and until the young man has his day in court judgement on his guilt should be withheld.

From what the story says Dickelle the charges are fitting the crime.

Tantor, do you even KNOW what the Tea Party is? According to your comments, you really really don't. Either that or you are just being a D-bag. If the former, please go google it. If the latter, please go away. You're not at all funny.

He knows. He is just being a douche. He doesn't want to be called the racist that he is. So instead of calling someone he assumes is black because they have committed a crime, he calls them tea party type. The implication being you don't actually hear about the white tea party half wits committing crimes, but you do hear about minorities committing crimes. It his attempt at being "pithy". So to conclude, your theory that he is a douche is spot on.
