Three teenagers head to court Monday accused of beating a 62-year-old father of 12 to death.For fun and fame. "Not normal human behavior".
According to police, one of the suspects recorded the beating with a cell phone then posted it online.
All three teenagers are charged with first-degree murder.
Police say the deadly videotaped beating took place in a Rogers Park alley in the 6300-block of North Artesian last Tuesday. Delfino Mora, 62, was disabled because of a workplace injury, according to relatives, and was collecting cans to help support his family when he was robbed and attacked, police said.
Unimaginable sickness on a scale we just begin to grapple with across the nation.
Because this happens every day in cities. Doesn't it. It only surfaces when the story is so horrifying we can't ignore it.
...More here. They took turns taping.

... Not long ago I was walking along State St., near Madison, close to the center of Chicago's Loop. I saw a girl reach out and nearly slap a man on the head as she walked behind him. Nearly bald, it shone pale in the sun. A soft target. Clearly she didn't hit him or he would have noticed. But I did. She and the two guys she was with laughed. I looked over at her. She stared back. She stared.
I've never thought of myself as very religious, but this is a come to God moment. Every man or woman of God worth his salt has got to confront this evil. Yes evil. Speak of Chastity. Fidelity. Honor marriage. Cherish children. Respect elders. Protect the most vulnerable.
Without a profound respect for life there is no liberty. It's as simple as that.
