Father of slain Chicago 9-year-old boy charged in shooting 3

The father of a 9-year-old Chicago boy who was shot and killed in November has been charged with shooting three people.

The Chicago Tribune reports that 25-year-old Pierre Stokes was charged with three counts of aggravated battery with a firearm and one count of unlawful use of a weapon by a felon in connection.

Stokes is accused in a shooting that occurred Tuesday, the day authorities announced charges against 22-year-old Dwright Boone-Doty in the Nov. 2 killing of Stokes' son, Tyshawn Lee.

The boy was one of 400 homicide victims in Chicago last year, but the fourth-grader's death shocked the city because, according to police, he was killed because of his father's gang affiliation.

Well, the way they make shows is, they make one show. That show's called a pilot. Then they show that show to the people who make shows, and on the strength of that one show they decide if they're going to make more shows.

Like you, I used to think the world was this great place where everybody lived by the same standards I did, then some kid with a nail showed me I was living in his world, a world where chaos rules not order, a world where righteousness is not rewarded. That's Cesar's world, and if you're not willing to play by his rules, then you're gonna have to pay the price.

You think water moves fast? You should see ice. It moves like it has a mind. Like it knows it killed the world once and got a taste for murder. After the avalanche, it took us a week to climb out. Now, I don't know exactly when we turned on each other, but I know that seven of us survived the slide... and only five made it out. Now we took an oath, that I'm breaking now. We said we'd say it was the snow that killed the other two, but it wasn't. Nature is lethal but it doesn't hold a candle to man.

You see? It's curious. Ted did figure it out - time travel. And when we get back, we gonna tell everyone. How it's possible, how it's done, what the dangers are. But then why fifty years in the future when the spacecraft encounters a black hole does the computer call it an 'unknown entry event'? Why don't they know? If they don't know, that means we never told anyone. And if we never told anyone it means we never made it back. Hence we die down here. Just as a matter of deductive logic.
