Chicago Boy Charged with Murder of Officer Grandmother

November 07, 2011  | 

A 15-year-old Chicago boy has been accused of murdering his 55-year-old grandmother after she yelled at him for skipping school. The relationship between the two, who lived together, had grown increasingly tense.

Chicago Police Officer Hester Scott has been taking care of Keshawn Perkins, who had been diagnosed with bipolar disorder. Perkins allegedly beat and stabbed his grandmother to death late Friday, wrapped her body in a blanket, and put her body in a catch basin in the backyard.

The officer had been stripped of her badge and gun after Perkins told authorities she had abused him. The 25-year veteran had been reassigned to a 911 call center, reports the Chicago Tribune.

Due to touchy feely Liberal politics, A citizen can't discipline their children, is stripped of thier rights to own weapons over an abuse alligation even though it was clear the murderer wanted to live with his fathr and all of the victims friends and family wanted him out of the house because "he was just dangerous". So severe was this abuse perpatrated on this young man by a loving grandmother, the State of Illinois didn't feel it necessary to remove the child from the abusive grand mother, just her authority and weapons to ensure the childs safety because "even though he lied on her, the system tends to listen to the children". Grandma was such an abusive person for demanding her grandson go to school, how dare she yell at a child for skipping school? Never mind the kid is nuttier than squirell poo and violent. I mean, he only "beat her with a lamp until she was quiet" and then used "two knives to slash her throat severing major veins in the neck".... We reap what we sow. Stand by ladies and gents, It's gonna get worse. We have a whole generation of people who are angry and intitled entering the ranks of adulthood and some are well trained. Buckle up!!

Bipolar my behind. That has nothing to do with it. It's always something. "They has ADD...; or AADA; or ABC; or OMG, or something else. What he needed was a swift kick in the behind. The little POS might get 2 years in Juvi, and then will come out as a "banger", with street cred already (killing a cop)

I agree with Bob. Spare the rod, spoil the child. That child has a serious problem. He should have a thorough psych exam to determine what is really wrong with him and then put him away for life.
