Charges dropped

"He can't go there. It's not going to be the same. They're not going to look at my baby the same," Greyer said. "He's 17. They've messed my baby's life up."

We almost lost another youngster at Fenger High when police jailed the wrong man in the death of Derrion Albert. Now police have dropped charges, but Eugene Bailey won't return to Fenger.
The first-degree murder charges leveled against her son almost had caused Greyer's family -- she has four other children living with her -- to be evicted. Chicago Housing Authority has a policy of dumping from the federal subsidized housing program families with members who have been arrested or charged with violent and other crimes. (Sun-Times)

  1. Is it true that Bailey was falsely ID by teachers at Fenger. How can he ever go back there and face those teachers?


Agree? Disagree? Let me hear from you.
