No negative comments about the victim. NO VICTIM BLAMING. 2 - I will not tolerate hate filled speech, vulgar or derogatory remarks about a victim. I will remove comments that go against this. I will not remove comments just because they do not match my beliefs, in fact, I welcome them! However, that being said, I will remove those that I find offensive, argumentative just for the sake of starting an argument that does not add to the post, hate-filled speech, etc. 3-No comments in ALL CAPS, or CoMeNtS.

In this case, 5 innocent teenagers (*Dixmoore Five*) were convicted of the rape and murder of 14-year-old Cateresa Matthews. DNA excluded all of them. The DNA found on and in this young girl belonged to Willie Randolph, a convicted rapist. In 2011, his DNA was matched to the DNA left at the crime scene, and he has yet to be charged with the murder of this innocent girl. He is a convicted sex offender, and is in prison for that a some other charges. However, his release date is set for May 25, 2013. Her family is still suffering. Justice is still needed for Cateresa Matthews and her loved ones. She should not be forgotten in all of this. PLEASE REMEMBER CATERESA MATTHEWS.

  1. i think its decent & commendadle of your blog and have it just as important as all the posts when an injustice is made .thanks

  2. These cases of wrongful conviction are a nightmare. In Chicago, where I live, there was this police commander, Jon W. Burge, who tortured hundreds of people into false confessions, dozens of whom ended up on death row, and they couldn’t even prosecute him for torture since there’s a statute of limitations on torture, but not on traffic tickets. American justice is insane!

  3. CBS 2 in Chicago would like permission to use the photograph of Cateresa Matthew for our 5 p.m. CST broadcast.

  4. I hope Willie Randolph rots in jail. Because that is what individuals deserve when they commit crimes like this. Sicko
