One of the most dangerous hobbitts of this century has left this world.
Jerome "King Shorty" Freeman died unbelievably of natural causes.
You would think with all the violence he inflicted upon the community, someone would have gotten hold of him. Jerome was head of the Black Disciples gang ruling the South Side of Chicago.
At 5 ft. tall, Jerome ruled the B.D.'s with platform shoes and an iron fist. Gun and drug trafficking was his job.
Jerome became even better at this job while behind bars, which says a lot about the penal system.
I refuse to call Jerome, "Mr. Freeman" as he is referred as by some people. I cannot respect in life or death a guy that took so much and cared so little about life, in particular another person's life.
This midget and people like him, set a standard of ignorance and buffoonery like no others. Assholes like him are looked upon as kings and the young in their communities idolize them and what (little) they stand for.
The countless murders that he committed or ordered and the selling of guns and drug sales have torn our community and others like it, to shreds.
Tio Hardiman, of Ceasefire, wants to make damn sure everyone knows that Jerome, in his retirement years, began a new life of peace.
Somewhere between the killings and prison, Jerome had a moment of clarity and decided to distance himself from the B.D.'s.
Tio, try to explain that "peaceful turnaround" bullshit to a person who lost a friend or family member at the hands of Jerome and his boys.
When they are doing a long bid in the pen, these misguided bitches always wanna chop off their dredlocks, cut off their braids, and find God and peace.
There's no closure for the people he's harmed.
At 60 years old, he found peace, so forgive me if I don't wish that little fucker the best in the afterlife.
