Cops: 2 More Charged in Deadly Attack Posted on Facebook

Jim Jaworski and Bridget Doyle, Chicago Tribune, July 16, 2012

Two more teens have been charged in connection in the deadly attack on a 62-year-old man last week that was recorded and posted on Facebook the same day a judge denied bond for a 16-year-old.

Nicholas Ayala, 17, and Anthony Malcolm, 18, were each charged with first-degree murder and robbery in the slaying of Delfino Mora, according to Chicago police.

Both Ayala and Malcolm each took turns using a cell phone camera to record the Tuesday morning beating that killed Mora, authorities said.

In court earlier in the day, Malik Jones, 16, of the 2400 block of West Thorndale Avenue, was ordered held without bail by Judge Adam Bourgeois for the first-degree murder charge. {snip}

Mora, of the 6000 block of North Washtenaw Avenue in the West Rogers Park neighborhood, was found unconscious but breathing in an alley in the 6300 block of North Artesian Avenue just before 8 a.m. Tuesday. He was taken to St. Francis Hospital in Evanston in critical condition and died at 3:30 p.m. Wednesday. {snip}

Jones was with two others when he confronted Mora Tuesday morning, asking him what he had in his pockets, prosecutors said. Jones then punched the victim in the jaw and he fell to the ground, hitting his head on the concrete, prosecutors said.

The attack was videotaped on the defendant’s cell phone by one of the other individuals and was later put on Jones’ Facebook page, prosecutors said. {snip}

Jones, who officials say is a gang member, was arrested Saturday in southwest suburban Orland Hills with the cell phone. {snip}

Maria Carmen Mora, 59, said her husband of more than 40 years was a hard worker and the patriarch of the family that includes 12 children. The family started out very poor in Mexico, she said, so her husband, who had built his home in Michoacan, Mexico, came to the Chicago area to work home construction to support their children.

A work accident about 15 years ago left him without full use of his right arm, she said, so he was unable to continue working. But Valentin Mora, 38, said his father’s disability didn’t keep him stuck inside. He would often walk around the neighborhood and collect cans to help support the family.

    Posting a cellphone video of yourself committing a crime on your own Facebook page.

    Genius.

    There’s that oppressive “digital divide” again.

       The BE article was interesting. I particularly liked this line:

      “The African American community must take personal responsibility to …Oh who am I kidding? I can’t even finish pasting that, it’s so laughable.

    It seems we get about one of these “Look what we did!” stories every week now.

    I’m still waiting for the first story ever about white guys who beat a black man to death, film it and post it on the internet.

    First. Story. Ever.

    • The MSM, the internet, and quite possibly the world would explode!

  • Athling

    Let me guess, ghetto urchins from a single female-headed houshold who was pregnant at 15, living on welfare, with at least three hood rats each with different fathers. Being a hood rat herself when she gave birth, she had no idea how to raise these future inmates.

    • Don’t forget that this all occurred because of “institutional racism” and it is Whitey’s fault.

      O.k., I feel much better after my mini confession.

  • IstvanIN

    What in heavens name did he say to those youths to get them so upset and defensive?

    •  Are you kidding? Since when do scum from da hood need an excuse?

  • libertarian1234

    This is similar to the two black females who beat a guy who didn’t fight back, then showed their swollen knuckles to the camera.

    And, how about the other incidents of black perps who post their criminal assaults on the Hip Hop site and Youtube?

    Could they be any dumber?

    Probably. 

    And when they are they will make a recording to show everybody.

    Did Mr. Mora enter the US legally or illegally??? When? Did he bring his (wife and) 12 kids with him, or were they born here?

    Funny how non-white fathers can be described as “patriarchs” and not have the feminazis go ballistic….

    Funny how non-whites can have a dozen kids and not hear outcries of “population explosion,” “human pox,” “environmental damage,” and “sustainable growth.”

    Mr. Mora’s been disabled for the past 15 years. Does he collect taxpayer paid disability? workmen’s comp?

       “Does he collect taxpayer paid disability? workmen’s comp?”

      Not anymore.

  • More urban scum, who follow the law of the jungle instead of that of civilization. Take them out and shoot them, would be my choice. Unfortunately, it’s not my choice, so they’ll probably just get a slap on the wrist and a stern lecture to run along and be good boys. Just one of the many reasons that this great country is falling apart.

    I wonder if the the voters in Chicago will ever notice that their celebrity mayor, “Rahmbo”, is just a worst-possible-case scenario of a limp-wristed, candy-*ss, blame-shifting, problem-denying progressive liberal.  It sure seems like the darker-skinned amongst them have figured this out…even with their low IQs!
    Incredible!

  • And if Obama had a son he would look like these two no doubt.

    I still see Corvairs on the road every now and again.   To me, they are great looking cars that were ahead of their time.     Hopefully they will outlast the leftist propaganda meisters like Nader and what passes for journalists nowadays.

    Now remember, the huge numbers of blacks in jail is because of racism and pot possession.    That’s what libs and blacks say.   Of course we know different.  There are huge numbers of them in prison because they will not adhere to any rules of society.   They are the destroyers of civilization.

    I think a lot of older Jewish neighborhoods quickly became ghetto once the Jews moved out.

     “It wasn’t a particulary racist expression but one of hatred and dislike, usually said with a sneer or with eyes of blood.”

    Like ‘gringo?’

     Actually, only two of Mora’s killers were black; the third was himself an hispanic named Ayala. The local papers went completely gaga in their coverage of Mora’s death. One of them — the Sun-Times if I remember correctly — devoted a half-dozen pages or more to the funeral, even following the extended family back to Michoacan for the burial. A white victim would not have received such lavish attention.
