Eight Men Charged with Felony after Dog Fight Bust

All attendees of the Dec. 6 bust were charged with attending and patronizing a dog fight.

Police charged all eight attendees of last week's Dolton dog fighting bust with class 4 felonies.

Cops caught the men after receiving a tip about a dog fight at the 1500 block of 142nd Street on the night of Dec. 6.

One of the men, Willie McCray, 26, of Calumet City has a no-bond warrant for "Murder, Strong Probability Death/Injury."

South Suburban Humane Society investigators rescued seven dogs from the scene. They are now recovering at the Chicago Heights facility.

Dolton? Well, HUGE surprise. Not.
Ginger December 10, 2012 at 03:07 PM
Does anyone know, if convicted, how much jail time they will serve?
Michael Wright December 10, 2012 at 03:45 PM
This is where "do unto others as you would have them do unto you" should prevail: 1) Strip them down naked, because dogs don't wear clothes. 2) Toss these pathetic excuses for human life into the same "arena" that the dogs were forced to fight in. 3) Withhold food and water. 4) Beat them with nail-sticks and other inhumane objects to inflict pain. 5) When they begin bleeding, pour salt into their wounds. 6) Rub their faces into their own urine and feces. 7) Then let them sit in their own filth and shame and let them rot there.

I agree with Michael an should rot in hell
Karen Kurowski McHugh December 10, 2012 at 06:16 PM
Scumbags. I totally agree with Michael's punishment. Eye for an eye. Anyone who wants to help the rescued dogs, please visit the South Suburban Humane Society web page! This is a top notch facility that takes in all animals...no one is turned away. The rescued Dalton 7 are all in their care, rehabilitating and under going different degrees of care or surgeries. PLEASE HELP THESE INNOCENT ANIMALS ANY WAY YOU CAN!!

I say getting these 8 MORONS arrested by the Cook County Sheriff is a great thing. I can't seem to recall when a raid such as this apprehended more pathetic criminal deviates than innocent animals rescued. The tipster should recieve a large reward and an accommodation.

Can somebody please explain to me why this disgusting dog fighting is a magnet for Negroes (and obviously one Mexican) but not Caucasians? We all remember Michael Vick and his dog fighting attraction. Same thing again. Anyone? Is it DNA???
michael king December 10, 2012 at 10:56 PM
(Ernie) seems to me this is bigger then dog fights with you i see u like to point your little racist finger around and i see hate is in your DNA

Just looking for an answer to a valid question, which you apparently do not have.

As an explanation for Ernie "Caucasians" usually treat dogs like they're family- meaning they sleep indoors every night, sometimes even sleep on couches or at the foot of the bed;have regular daily meals;, and are treated as they're adopted children. I don't know of many else that even dress their pet in clothes either. ( but my rescued pitbull loves her outfits) It's just sad some humans don't have common sense or compassion for animals, and use them as a source of demented entertainment or to breed to make $.

negroes cant work a real job so they try to make money of killing these dogs..bunch of ghetto garbage..poor dogs..people shouldnt sell to those people.

Racism and hate won't do anything but serve to distract the focus and attention from this heinous crime. For each one of these idiots in this ring there are thousands of African American families in this area who are devoted pet lovers and are as outraged by this as we all are. There are many people who seek to ban pit bulls for being too aggressive or dangerous, however those that have had the opportunity to know a pit who was cared for and properly trained knows what a loving animal they can be. There is a saying pit bull lovers use to battle the uninformed that seek to ban their beloved pets...."Blame the deed, not the breed." I think the same can be said to those of you who would seek to blame an entire race of people for actions of these few morons. So were these 8 men not educated? Not cared for? Taught that this type of activity is acceptable behavior in our society? Who knows, but it's obvious that something in their upbringing brought them to that warehouse that night and it was not just the color of their skin. I would emplore all of us that were fortunate enough to be instilled with compassion for animals and blessed with the education to know dog fighting is unacceptable, to not waste those gifts we were given by making racist comments and blaming this on the race of the individuals involved.

Well said Nate!!! Couldn't of said it better myself.
SouthSide December 11, 2012 at 10:53 PM
Ernie, that guy is not Mexican. His ancestors are French.
SouthSide December 11, 2012 at 10:59 PM
I love that you dress up your Pibble. : )
SouthSide December 11, 2012 at 11:01 PM
Thank you for this intelligent comment, Nate Olson! I absolutely agree with you.
Michael Wright December 13, 2012 at 12:16 AM
I agree, but I am sick and tired of these supposed "grown" men who don't know any better...is this how they want to play it? Did their mommies not love them enough? Did their daddies abandoned the household? At what point do we as a society stop making excuses for these pathetic excuses of wasted lives and start demanding answers? These "men" (I can barely type the word) are old enough to know better that in THIS country, abusing ANYTHING or ANYBODY IS AGAINST THE LAW!

Are you kidding me? the pit bull was perfected as the only killer dog by white psychopaths from western europe. For most of the 20th century, it was good ol' boy southern racist redneck psycho morons who enjoyed watching dogs chew off faces, bite off limbs and eviscerate each other for fun and money. Whitey OWNS psychopathic dogfighting. The biggest psycho dogfighters today are in the baltic and slavic countries - whitey. Whitey american psycho dogfighters still alive today and pumping out fighting dogs by the tub are Floyd Boutreaux, Pat Partrick, and Tom Garner. All whitey. They are racist good ol boys but don't hesitate to sell to black thugs, too. Biggest dogfighter bust ever happened in 2009 - 30 white racist pukes and 400 busted.
Lucy Muir December 13, 2012 at 02:05 AM
Look, up until the 70's it was all whitey. and he brought his children and his wife loved watching dogs dismember and evicerate each other. They were sick racist stupid southern redneck families going to church and then going together to watch. watch whitey redneck psycho dogfighters: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OCcZ8CU1RKc Those racist psychos are still pumping out fighting dogs for money and they happily sell to any race.

The way it works in illinois is that they usually bargain to get the dogfighters money and they usually give them no jail time in exchange for money. http://pitbullattacksinillinois.blogspot.com/2011/10/june-28-2010-no-jail-in-dogfighting.html
Lucy Muir December 13, 2012 at 02:42 AM
that is a ridiculous statement. Caucasians are the ones who developed the perversion of nature called the pit bull. Caucasians perfected the gruesome "sport" of dogfighting - only whitey could manage to take dogfighting to the extreme edge of gruesomeness by breeding a dog, that once it gets going, will not stop, even if its opponent has stumped all four of its legs. (that means breaking the legs completely in two so the fighting dog who will not quit hobbles around on the stumps of legs - still fighitng. Only whitey could manage to create that. And dressing up fighting dogs is really off too. Your rescued pit does not love her outfits.
Lucy Muir December 13, 2012 at 02:46 AM
The biggest psycho dogfighters out there now are in the eastern european and slavic countries.
SouthSide December 13, 2012 at 02:33 PM
This is for Ernie, who thinks dog fighting is not a white man's crime: http://www.lifewithdogs.tv/2012/12/police-bust-couple-for-running-a-dog-fighting-ring-in-home-they-shared-with-five-children/
Dinkum December 13, 2012 at 02:48 PM
Lucy, you clearly have race anger management issues and have used this topic to vent. Any reasonable person knows this ugly, illegal activity has little to do with "blacks or whites" and your race rant takes the focus off the real issue here. You probably don't realize it but you and Ernie are different sides of the same coin.
Dinkum December 13, 2012 at 02:56 PM
Ignore Ernie. We all know this is about money, not race.
