WarCry - Child shot and killed in Quincy - Quincy, IL News - QuincyJournal.com
What I've heard from family friends (via Facebook comments) is that his mom was at work, so he was at a friends/babysitters. She was coming to pick him up when she got off work. Reportedly, he was coming out of the house and she was sitting in the car waiting for him when he was shot. Presuming this is all true, then 1) it should dispel any of this "Why was he out??" crap that doesn't matter,…

He was sitting right outside the front door waiting for his mother to pick him up. He was not unsupervised. This is what his family says. Please do not be too quick to blame parents. They have enough to deal with.

I would hazard that the teachers and unions have a different reason than the parents.

Carroll Cullerton accused of sexual battery in Memphis

Son of IL Senate President John Cullerton

 (Note the nature of the following story)

On Friday, a Mid-South woman shared her story of an alleged vicious attack inside of a Beale Street nightclub. The man at the center of a sexual battery investigation — the son of a prominent Illinois state politician.

The politician is President of the Illinois State Senate John Cullerton, and his 26-year-old son spent part of Independence Day on Beale and behind bars.

They say nothing good happens after midnight. What Emily Moss says happened to her early Friday morning inside Club 152 was anything but.

"You wouldn't anything like that to happen to your little sister, your mom," said Moss.

Memphis Police charged Carroll Cullerton, 26, of Chicago with sexual battery for allegedly fondling Moss on the third floor. She had just gotten off work when she says Cullerton started dancing too closely.

The affidavit states Cullerton unzipped the victim's dress, exposing her bra to a crowded bar, then ran his hands between the victim's breasts.

Moss says Cullerton even told club security and police about his political ties.

"I guess he thought that was OK and he could get away with that, I'm not sure," said Moss. "Especially when you tell people ‘stop, don't do that,' and they do it anyways."

Cullerton bonded out of jail on Friday night. He is due back in court on Monday.
