The Chatham Four

Posted on July 28, 2015

Latoya JacksonIt should be obvious to anyone paying attention that only certain mass murder events deserve the national media spotlight. However, there’s been a couple of mass murders lately that have received very little national press.

First was a quintuple domestic related homicide in Oklahoma that we suspect would have gotten more press if 1) the murder weapon wasn’t a knife and 2) it wasn’t domestic in nature. The second mass murder happened right here in Chicago’s Chatham neighborhood.

“A young mother and her three children whose bodies were found inside a home in the South Side Chatham neighborhood were strangled to death, according to the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

The medical examiner ruled the cause of death for 28-year-old Latoya Jackson and the three children was strangulation and the manner of death was homicide.

Jackson and the three children were found inside a home in the 8300 block of South Drexel on July 18 after neighbors noticed a potent smell coming from the home and realized they had not seen the children, all boys, outside playing for several days.

Police then investigated the home and found four bodies deceased inside. Leon Ervin, the boys’ grandfather, identified the boys as 11-year-old Andrew Simms, 9-year-old Cameron Jackson and 5-year-old Kentrell. He said all of the children attended Caldwell Elementary School.”

The Tribune as well as others state that the cause of death for the children is yet unknown:

Determination of the cause and manner of death for the boys is still pending, and the office is working with Jackson’s family to officially identify them, a spokesman for the medical examiner’s office said.

Regardless of official proclamations, why do two stories of families being wiped out garner such little attention while the crazy dude that shoots up a [insert gun free zone here] receive wall to wall media coverage?

Keep it short and to the point. Name calling and similar stupidity will be deleted. If you insist on writing several paragraphs, start your own blog.

    I’m fucking livid at this.

    In a city where despite 7 homicides this weekend, our elected officials were more upset about a hologram. You would think that the murder of this woman and her children would merit outrage on the highest order. But unless they can be politically exploited, they don’t count, and become a mere footnote.

    I don’t even have the words.

      Doesn’t matter how high you pile up the bodies, the likes of Obama, Sharpton and friends could care less unless they can be exploited for their perverted political purposes.
      This isn’t about dead, they don’t care, this is about power and political purposes.

      was a good friend of Latoya. The story just ended. Do they have someone in custody? Are they really looking for anyone? I live there too and want justice.

    Right on the nose. If it doesn’t fit either their anti-gun, anti-cop or racist whitey narrative it garners little attention. If, in the unlikely event, the killer of these 4 turns out to be White, the national coverage will be wall to wall for weeks.

      That’s exactly it. Doesn’t fit the liberal agenda.

    A rhetorical question?

  6. Tony July 29, 2015 at 8:24 pm

    A little off topic, but a legitimate question. If a bro gets shot while driving and loses control of the vehicle and hits something or someone will he get a ticket for reckless driving? I would think that failure to maintain control of a vehicle is a ticket offense. Having your ass shot off is no excuse. He be havin nuffin fo an excuse so tough luck.

    Alottapalookas…er, I mean Lollapalooza begins this weekend if I am not incorrect. I took 65/345 and the over so there is a slight chance the 65 will be covered….fifty shootings in two days is a stretch but if anyone can do the lads of Chiraq may be up to the challenge

    I have lived in and around Chicago all my life (65 years). The non-voters of Chicago deserve everything that is currently happening. They have allowed to be elected a spoiled punk for a mayor, who appointed a liberal moron for a police chief and a gang of criminals for aldermen. I wish I thought this one up but ……….”if you play stupid games you win stupid prizes”.

    There will be no changes in Chicago until people other than the left have a voice. The Democrats (formally the Marxist, formally the Left, currently the Progressives) have been in control (well over seven decades) and the time has come for voices of reason to step up. A sample of progressive thinking is the police chief’s comment that the new gun law allowing concealed carry contributes to the high murder rate in Chicago. Does anyone else see the lunacy here?

      Lunacy is what the Liberal Left thrive on!!! Keeping the voters fat, drugged and stupid is the goal. They don’t want responsibility, they want REVOLUTION!!!! Look at what is happening to our children. Very sad. Always blame something other than the fact that man has a sinful heart. Blame the “GUN”, or the “FLAG”, or the “COPS”! Never the person that made the wrong choice.

    I learned the lesson that great men cultivate love, and that only little men cherish a spirit of hatred.

    The murders in Chicago and Oklahoma didn’t make the national news because no guns were involved in the killings and there was no apparent racial angle to be exploited by the MSM.
    So they’re dead and no one cares.

    Anyone that votes Democrat is an A**hole.
    Every Democrat run city in the USA is a garbage dump. If you vote for the same old same old you get the same old same old. Kapish???

    Who cares… Cecil the Lion was killed!!!!!

    (Sarcasm off)

    The media’s active avoidance of this and the PP baby body parts clearly illustrates their manipulation of the American public. We no longer have Freedom of the press… we have a propaganda machine.

    • Parker July 31, 2015 at 7:43 am

      Wait…..Cecil the lion was killed?

      I’m sure it was because of a suburban gun shop.
