Prosecutor: Teens killed man in
Ugh what a sad story. Have to love the fathers comments
But Jonesí father, Terry Jones, said Monday that his son didnít realize that the blow he was struck was fatal.
ďHe was only trying to knock him out,Ē he said, adding that his sonís troubles dated to his joining the gang and time he spent in juvenile detention in DuPage County.
Sent using 2 cans and string
I grow weary of this kind of behavior. The father-what a joke. He has no integrity, no courage to stay on the side of "RIGHT" and denounce his son's actions. He is likely the biggest part of the problem here. Sadly, it seems most people will put their progeny first when it comes to misbehavior. I've seen it on many levels. Never mind what is right or wrong their only thought is to protect their child. Unfortunately, the child learns he can escape the consequences of his actions. Then comes a day when his actions get him into a place where he is irredeemable. Then everyone wrings their hands and cries "How could this happen?"
I can play a game of knock-out, too. I carry it in my waistband.
I agree with the previous post, I will play their game but by my rules only.
According to police reports, Jones and Ayala are both members of the Latin Kings street gang. All three teens have been charged as adults with first-degree murder and are being held without bail. They’ve all confessed, prosecutors say.

Father???? A father would have taught his son right from wrong. This "man" is no father.
I just passed on an opportunity to attend a conference in Chicago. I'd rather visit Somalia.
i don't know man, pizza uno is pretty awesome. we actually make a trip once a year for that. and then high tail it the heck right back outta there.
It aggravates me something awful when I read comments like this. Like when a person is killed committing a robbery and someone says they wasn't going to hurt anyone they only wanted to have some fun or take some property or whatever it was they were there for.Quote:
“He was only trying to knock him out,”
The fact that the person they attacked does not want to play their game does not enter their mind. Its like they can do anything they want to another person and its okay because they are only having fun. I blame that attitude on the parents.
Well, we've now had several incidents of this one punch game that has resulted in death. Therefore, if someone is approached by individuals intent on striking them, there would be a real fear of death or severe bodily injury which would justify a deadly force response. So be it.
Dang..... They could be Obummer's sons!!!!
Fists are deadly. We must ban them right now. You must pass a fist safety course before you are allowed to have one. Let's all outlaw them now. Only police should have them.
Absolutely horrible. The level of depravity that we see anymore is amazing. These young men that are so desperately seeking ways to measure their manhood are going to get a crash course in reality. Instead of seeing it on YouTube, their going to be seeing it from inside of prison walls. Now they get to be the involuntary victims of someone else's whims.
This story does put things into a different perspective. I remember reading other threads on here where people have said that someone attacking you with nothing more than than their fists to punch you was not enough justification to draw. Now, a punch doesn't seem so innocent.
