I almost can't believe this happened right now considering I just wrote a blog post on this two days ago.  First, I appreciate all the comments on my last post about my friend Jason.  It was a very spur of the moment post and I just wrote from my heart.

My friend Charlie posted a link on facebook to the Chicago Tribune where he found this story.  That guy that was acquitted in the murder of my friend Jason was gunned down on the West Side of Chicago in the early morning hours, most likely gang related.

I would never wish for anyone to be murdered.  I don't think two wrongs make a right.  I do know that I was angry when this guy was acquitted.  He walked out of the courtroom with a smile on his face.  I was happy that one guy was convicted but I never felt right that this guy was allowed to walk.  Happy.  Free.  Released to cause whatever other crimes he may commit.  Justice in my mind was half served.  I had to let the rest go.  There was nothing I could do about it.

Really all I have left to say in light of the murder of this guy that was originally acquitted... karma is a bitch.  What goes around comes around.  Am I happy that you were gunned down like my friend Jason??  I'm not happy for any of this.  

I'm just hoping that Jason got the justice he so deserved.  You are forever in our hearts.


  1. I read your story yesterday and briefly looked at the headline for the story today. Karma does take care of things.

  2. Whoa! I read about that this morning and didn't realize it was connected to your post. Karma has a weird way of working...

  3. Wow, just caught up on your posts Amanda - and yep, payback is a bitch! You can't kill someone and get away with it, even if it took his life too.
