Chiraq: 4 alleged gang members charged in murder of 9 year-old boy

While self-appointed civil rights leaders such as Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson were protesting the shooting death of Michael Brown by police in Ferguson, Missouri last month, a nine year-old boy wandered into the No Man's Land of a railroad track border between two rival street gangs on Chicago's South Side.

Antonio Smith payed for that mistake with his life.

But Sharpton and Jackson had little or nothing to say about Smith's murder--unlike the death of Brown, who had just robbed a convenience store.

As for Smith's slaying, justice may be coming, despite the relative disinterest from Jackson--who lives on the South Side--and Sharpton.

From the Chicago Tribune:
Three reputed gang members have been charged with gunning down an innocent 9-year-old boy as they searched for someone from a rival gang to shoot last month.

Charged with first-degree murder are the suspected gunman, Derrick Allmon, 19, of the 7400 block of South Shore Drive; Jabari Williams, 22, of the 1900 block of North Sycamore Street in Hanover Park; and Michael Baker, 19, of the 8100 block of South Wentworth Avenue.

A fourth person, also 19, was being questioned by police.

The suspects belong to the Sircon City faction of the Gangster Disciples and were looking to shoot members of a rival faction known as Pocket Town on Aug. 20 when they came across Antonio Smith in the 1200 block of East 71st Street, police said.
One of the alleged gangbangers, reputed gunman Allmon, has the word "Blessed" tattooed on his chest. He appears instead to be a curse on humanity.
