Chicago Drug Dealer Has “Crack Addicts” Lined Up Around The Corner

trapline

Chicago drug dealer ‘James Tripplet’ has a line around the corner for his drugs. It seems as if Mr. Tripplet is truly setting the standard for dope business supply and demand

According to My Fox Chicago:

Now 42 people are facing state or federal drug charges for their alleged roles in supplying and distributing heroin around West Grenshaw and Independence in the North Lawndale neighborhood on the West Side, the Chicago Sun-Times is reporting.

Among them is the 33-year-old Triplett, also known as “Trell,” who authorities said controlled the drug market in the area.

Investigators even included a photo in a federal criminal complaint spanning more than 200 pages. They said the photo depicts a line of people waiting on June 16 to get their hands on heroin supplied by Triplett’s organization in the 3700 block of West Grenshaw.

The photo was taken just south of the Eisenhower Expressway, which has come to be known as “Heroin Highway.”

trap2The feds said Triplett’s suppliers sometimes put the heroin in bags with logos that included green Playboy bunnies, Hershey kisses, basketballs, Batman, black pandas or “purple ladies.”

“Early this morning, they woke me up,” said North Lawndale resident Precious Archer.

Archer said around 7 o’clock, four agents were knocking on her door near the 3700 block of West Grenshaw, which is ground zero of the alleged drug ring.

“They had pictures of people, basically asking did we see this person,” she said.

Authorities say the heroin was diluted to increase profits.

“This is one of those locations that we always talk about, a drive up location on the West Side where people come in from the suburbs to buy narcotics and return,” Supt. Garry McCarthy said.

The DEA said the drug was obtained from Mexico. Its sale generated nearly a quarter of a million dollars every month.

“This multi-agency investigation…represents a significant hammer-blow to the open-air drug markets operating in North Lawndale and Douglas Park,” McCarthy said.

DEA Special Agent-in-Charge Dennis Wichern, who worked on the case, said: “Every day, one person in Chicago dies from a heroin overdose.”

Chicago police and Drug Enforcement Administration agents assigned to the High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area Task Force led the investigation. Sixteen people face federal charges. They include Triplett, who is charged with drug conspiracy and faces a minimum of 10 years in prison if convicted. Another 26 face state charges.

This is a very sad story. May God help those lined up and those that are about to be lined up in prison for their contribution.

Welcome To Chicago: “A Place Where 6 Month Old Babies Take Bullets To The Face”

Madam Prezident

I wrote this poem for the lives lost in Chicago due to senseless gang violence.

Welcome to Chicago
The Place of the cold case
Where 6 month old babies take bullets to the face
Welcome to Chicago
“Where you have to stop”
When you hear gun shots
Hit the floor
And hope a bullet
Doesn’t come through the door
“Welcome to Chicago”
The place where you hear
Of caskets being lowered to the ground
You hear Mothers WEEP
Beyond caskets going 6ft deep
WELCOME TO CHICAGO
Where our schools system
Is a fools system
Place our children at the bottom of the pool system
You got 1 teacher to 30 kids
All in room
So in actuality you got 1 teacher
To 30 dreams that’s all trying to bloom
And our children want hugs and love
Instead of a community flooded with drugs
They want grade level books
So they won’t have infantile education and knowledge
They want to have the conversation about
“Where they’re going to college”
And they want their father’s home
Instead of 26th and California
Where it’s not sunny
Our children still make time to laugh
But it’s not “funny”
“The deconstruction of the black family”
To get a piece of this American Pie
Ain’t No piece of cake
They’ve already labeled us as 3/5ths of a man
Which explains the high unemployment rates
‘To the black race
BUT THERE’S SOMETHING ABOUT GOD’S GRACE
Where he can place his angels across a Chicago skyline
Reduces a young man’s jail time
Change POVERTY into Prosperity
Decrease the high school drop-out rate
And Increase the college graduate rate
Make No mistake about God’s grace
Even a place where bullets are flying
Children are dying
And mothers are crying
There is still a HIGHER POWER
That Channel 5, 7, and 9 News won’t acknowledge at the top of the hour
And his blessings exceeds the height of the Sears tower
‘WELCOM TO CHICAGO’
A place where God calms a storm
A place where
Some of your best black doctors, lawyers, surgeons, authors, and play writers were BORN!
‘WELCOME TO CHICAGO’
Where the struggle still exist
A place where we work hard
For low wages, pay high taxes,
BUT OUR SPIRTIS ARE STILL RICH
No matter how good or bad it may get
I am a PRODUCT of THIS
”WELCOME TO CHICAGO”

Obama Sheds A Tear For The Youth

TAccording to 360 Experiment:

You don’t see the president crying very often, but there’s a first time for every time.  President Obama broke down during a speech to supporters, crying as he reminisced about his days as a community organizer.

President Obama was crying. Not choked up, not somewhat emotional. He was crying. It was a startling sight — after years of watching the man known for his coolness under pressure, for his analytic detachment — to see him suddenly wearing his heart on his rolled up sleeve.

What happened? What made the president — “No Drama Obama,” “President Spock” — suddenly crack?

It happened Wednesday, the day after he won re-election, when he stood before the staff at his Chicago campaign headquarters to thank them for the work that helped make his victory possible. “What you guys have done,” he said, “means that the work that I’m doing is important.” His right index finger quickly wiped away tears as they streamed down his cheek.

Perhaps Obama felt emotionally overpowered by what awaits him even before he finishes his first term. The country is careering toward the “fiscal cliff,” which really is the wrong term. It’s more a fiscal suicide (fiscacide?) if the government irresponsibly pushes the country into a self-inflicted recession, complete with a renewed rise in unemployment. Without an agreement with Republicans, Americans, including Obama supporters weeping with him in that room, will face higher taxes and across-the-board spending cuts.

Chicago Wants Chief Keef Back In Juvenile Hall After A Video Of Him In The Gun Range

If he keeps on fueling the violence in our neighborhoods instead of trying to mend old wounds or right his wrongs… then lock him back up:

 

“With the 17-year-old rapper listening, Cook County prosecutors outlined why they think the Interscope Records artist should be returned to juvenile detention. The rapper, whose real name is Keith Cozart, is serving 18 months of probation for pointing a gun at a Chicago cop. He was also found delinquent on two other felonies. Prosecutors argued he violated the probation by having a gun in a video posted online. They pointed to a recorded media interview the rapper did in June at a gun range in New York, where he can be seen with a gun. That’s a probation violation, prosecutors argued, because his probation bans him from having any guns or illegal drugs or associating with gang members.”

According to Rolling Stone music

Prosecutors argued today in a Chicago juvenile court that Chief Keef should go back to jail for violating his probation, pointing to a controversial Pitchfork video interview with the Chicago rapper at a gun range, the Chicago Sun Times reports. Keef is currently serving 18 months probation for pointing a gun at a Chicago police officer.

Cook County prosecutors say that because Keef can be seen with a gun in the Pitchfork video, he is violating probation conditions that prohibit him from having any firearms or illegal drugs or associating with gang members. Prosecutors also pointed to Keef’s failure to earn a GED before a deadline set by his probation, and a September 30th incident when Chicago police found Keef with members of the Black Disciple gang while responding to a call of gang disturbance. Keef has another hearing scheduled for November 20th.

Chief Keef, real name Keith Cozart, was linked last month to the shooting death of rival teen rapper Lil Jojo, who was gunned down on a Chicago street. Immediately after Jojo’s death, Keef tweeted taunting messages about the slain rapper.

Pitchfork last month pulled the Chief Keef gun range video interview in response to the Lil Jojo slaying and concerns about a wave of gun violence in Chicago, where the site is based.

Lil Mouse: Meet The 13-yr Old Rapper That Will Be Dead Or In Jail By The Age Of 25

 

 

 

 

 

 

Lil Mouse, a 13-year-old Chicago rapper who spits verses about guns, sex, and gangs.   “Get Smoked” track on his new album Dedication 4 mixtape.

The backlash is catching up, though—blogs have already begun criticizing Wayne’s endorsement of Lil Mouse’s evident kiddie corruption. Watch the video for the original “Get Smoked” and Lil Wayne’s remix.

A word from Madam P: 

It’s a sad day in America when our 13 year old boys have traded in books for guns! I’m sure lil mouse will be a successful rapper because capitalizing on poor peoples ignorance has always been a hit in America, but I assure you his financial wealth will not be a substitution for his poor soul!

Lil Wayne has taken this child under his wings, and it’s sad to say, they won’t get very far. It makes me ask the question- “What is success”? Is success a 13yr old rapper being signed to a major record label?

Young African American’s & Latino’s Are America’s Most Unemployed!

Isht is real out there y’all, prepare yourself for the REAL world!

Black and Latino Youth Are Among The Most Unemployed And Uneducated In America

Hispanic youths, one of the fastest-growing segments of the United States population, are poised to fill the needs of the workforce as millions of baby boomers retire in the coming years. But a new report shows that an alarming number of Hispanic and black teens and young adults, those between the ages of 16 and 24, are neither working nor in school—what the authors call “disconnected.”

The study, “One in Seven: Ranking Youth Disconnection in the 25 Largest Metro Areas,” found that about while about 14.7 percent of Americans overall in this age group are disconnected, Latinos in this range have a disconnection rate of 18.5 percent, and blacks have the highest rate, at 22.5 percent.

Exiting the teenage years without a job or not advancing in the classroom prevents youth from building workforce credentials and social skills, said Kristen Lewis, the report’s coauthor. Absent from structured environments, youth do not learn how to handle stress.

“It really stumps human development,” Lewis said. “It closes off some of life’s most rewarding, joyful paths, and it really limits your long-term trajectory.”

Withdrawal also perpetuates a vicious cycle of unwed pregnancies, violence, and incarceration among blacks and Latinos, said Philip Jackson, founder and executive director of the Black Star Project, a Chicago-based program that seeks to improve student attendance.

Jackson blames a lack of family structure on most of the ills that black people (particularly males) face.

“A two-parent household is an oddity in many black communities,” he said, which weakens some individuals’ potential and prospects.

This “disconnection” also puts a strain on the taxpayers that wake their a$$ up and go to work everyday.

Having disconnected minority youths also hurts taxpayers. The study noted that youth disconnection for all racial groups—5.8 million young people—cost taxpayers $93.7 billion in government support and lost tax revenue last year alone.

This should appall all of us black, white, latino, asian, whoever. This is our country, and our future!

Jennifer Hudson appeared on Oprah’s Next Chapter: Here’s What You Missed

Oscar-winner Jennifer Hudson opened up to Oprah Winfrey about the shocking murders of her family members and revealed that she’s forgiven William Balfour for the crime.

Jennifer Hudson appeared on Oprah’s Next Chapter last night where she talked very openly about th tragic murders of her family members, how her life changed after her dramatic weight loss and her dream to have a daughter.   The interview was shot at her gorgeous apartment in Chicago (overlooking Lake Michigan and the city) where she was joined by sister Julia and fiance David Otunga.

 

On forgiving William Balfour:

She says she has forgiven him.  “For the most part it’s not his fault.  It’s like what he was taught and how he was brought up…he never had a chance.”

On grief and the death of her mother, brother and nephew:

“There were so many shocks involved in it. Like, who I do grieve for first or who do I start with? Of course I’m going to think of my mother because it’s my mother. I think of her a lot.mmNext I think of Julian (nephew) or my brother. I have moments where it’s bits and pieces.”

On visiting the grave site:

I haven’t been to the grave site since we buried them. But now I want to go because I feel like we’ve accomplished this. We’ve done this. We got justice for you. I can’t come back here empty handed. I’ve came back with just being served,”

On the wedding and expanding their family:

Jen was mum about details but revealed she and David have a date for the wedding.  When it came to their family, David said they want a little girl to play with son David Jr.. ‘”We definitely want to have one of each.”  Jennifer added, “That’s the next part of the dream.”

On Hollywood…before the weight loss:

“Already I had lost like 60 pounds then, I was exercising everyday I got down to a size 12 and I got to Hollywood and they were like, ‘How do you feel being the big girl?’ And I was like, ‘Who are they talking to?’ I literally looked around like this is normal, this is fine, this is average, where I come from it’s totally fine, so I couldn’t understand.”

On body image and insecurity:

“Another one they would say is ‘Do you feel insecure being a big girl?’ And I thought, ‘Why should I feel insecure?’ I remember saying ‘I have the height of a model, lips people pay for, things like that.'”

On lip injections:

“When I did Dreamgirls I actually had to get my dent right here injected because it was affecting the lighting,” she says pointing at her top lip. “And when I got it done, the doctor was like ‘I do not want to do this. Do you realize people come in here and pay to have the lips you have naturally.’ And I was like, ‘I don’t want to but I have to for the movie!'”

Ex-Chicago Cop Drew Peterson Found Guilty Of Murdering 3rd Wife

Drew Peterson has been found guilty of 1st Degree Murder in the 2004 murder of his 3rd wife after his 4th wife vanished…

The jury in the murder trial of Drew Peterson, a former Chicago-area police sergeant accused of killing his ex-wife, has reached a verdict after deliberating for nearly 14 hours total.

A jury of seven men and five women have focused on whether Peterson, 58, was responsible for the death of Kathleen Savio, his third wife, who was found dead in her dry, clean bathtub March 1, 2004.

Peterson pleaded not guilty and the defense contended Savio fell accidentally, hit her head and drowned.

Savio’s death was ruled a homicide in February 2008, and Peterson was later arrested and indicted on two charges of first-degree murder. But during Judge Edward Burmila’s instructions to the jury, he told them there was now one count.

Peterson was married to Savio in 2001 when he had an affair with then-17-year-old Stacy Cales, who later became his fourth wife. Savio and Peterson filed for divorce in October 2001 and their relationship remained contentious for the next several years.

At the time of her death, which authorities initially treated as an accident, a court was mulling how the couple’s marital assets would be divided, and Savio was set to receive part of Peterson’s pension and other support.

He faces up to 60 years in prison.

About time they found this piece isht guilty! We just hope the Savio family can finally get some piece of mind knowing their daughter’s killer has been brought to justice.
