Tyshawn Lee: His gang banger dad tells cops to f**k off.

From DNAinfo:

When Chicago police asked the father of slain 9-year-old Tyshawn Lee to help catch his son’s killer he didn’t just decline to help, the reputed gang member told investigators to “f— off,” sources told DNAinfo.com.

Police believe Tyshawn was executed due to the gang affiliation of his father, Pierre Stokes — who told reporters police have harassed him “trying to see if I’ll get mad, if I’m gonna do something.  They want to lock me up.”

Stokes is a reputed member of the Gangster Disciple faction “Killa Ward” that police sources say has been at war with the “Terra Dome” faction of the Black P Stone street gang.

While it’s unclear what the gang beef is about, a source said the feud has been stoked by social media threats and resulted in a string of several retaliatory shootings dating back to August.

Stokes “knows what this is about. He’s not cooperating,” a source said.

Stokes, however, told DNAinfo there is no reason why his son would be shot in retaliation for any gang shooting. He said those recent shootings did not involve him and that, if someone did want to harm him, it would be easy enough to do.

“That don’t got nothing to do with me,” Stokes said. “It definitely don’t got nothing to do with my son. He’s 9. He ain’t 18.”

Police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi confirmed investigators have “people of interest” identified and made considerable progress building a case in the last 72 hours that they are optimistic will lead to homicide charges.

The main thing standing in the way of arresting Tyshawn’s killer remains the no-snitch code of silence on the street.

Right, and you wouldn’t want to violate that no-snitch code, even if your kid did get killed.

  1. Sadly it appears nine-year-old *Tyshawn Lee*, his mom, his dad and many of their neighbors are victims of America’s expanding and shameful **National Epidemic of Childhood Abuse and Neglect*, *Poverty**, that for more than two generations has deprived untold numbers of American kids from experiencing and enjoying a fairly happy American kid childhood with *Safe Streets* to travel and play on, is primarily responsible for filling our prisons with depressed, angry, frustrated teens and adults.

    *Child Abuse and Neglect* that is primarily responsible for populating our prisons with depressed, angry, frustrated, undisciplined, unpredictable, sometimes suicidal teens and adults full of resentment for irresponsibly being introduced to a life of hardships and struggles.

    **Early Childhood Abuse and Neglect** that often leads depressed, sometimes suicidal **(NY Times May 18, 2015 – Rise in Suicide by Black Children Surprises Researchers)** children to develop into depressed, angry, frustrated, unpredictable, sometimes suicidal teens and adults lacking empathy and compassion for others, though needing to vent their pent up negative emotions, often causing emotional and physical harm to peaceful people…instead of venting their anger, resentment and pain on the immature single moms and/or dads who introduced them to a life of pain and struggle by irresponsibly building a family before acquiring the practical skills, **PATIENCE** and means to successfully raise and nurture a developing young child who matures into a fairly happy responsible teen and adult with mostly fond childhood memories.

    Black *(Children’s)* Lives Matter; Take Pride In Parenting; End Our National Epidemic of Child Abuse and Neglect; End Community Violence, Police Fear & Educator’s Frustrations
